I cannot tell you how many hours (and hours, and hours) I have stayed up late trying to sew patches on her Brownie vest. I had to sew them on because the "iron on" patches did not stick. I used to dread when the girls would earn a new badge. "Oh, crap, I have to try to figure out how to find time to sew that thing on" was always my first thought, not "congratulations!" How terrible. Our troop girls were quite "into" the whole patch thing so I felt like I had to do it. You know how that is, you do things for your kids so they won't be mortified that you didn't.
Back to Badge Magic, the best stuff ever. The lovely lady who works at the GS store told me to get it and I was like this, "huh, I don't want to buy any more stuff here, I am already spending like $30 and my baby is cranky because we had to drive forever to get here when you opened on this Saturday morning and I have to go to the grocery and then go home and make lunch for my kids who are home with their Big Tall Daddy and probably driving him crazy." I really said, "Ok, what is it?" She told me it is basically a way to make every patch a really super sticky sticker. And man-o does it work. Good. Awesomely. A life saver for sure. I put all the new pieces on Zoe's sash in about 5 minutes. The lady at the Girl Scout store and the inventor of Badge Magic are my new heroes. I am so mad I didn't have it before. At the crossing over ceremony I told everyone who would listen about the magic of Badge Magic. Bring on the patches my new big girl Girl Scout, I'm armed and ready!
Let me know if you want me to pick you up a pack. ;)
