The Achievement Points of Parenting.

So I was thinking today that being spit up on was like 50 “parenting points”, but then realized that this was probably an inflated value and that I should sit down and figure out a points system completely. What did I come up with? See for yourself:

Spit Up – White: 10
Spit Up – Yellow: 10
Spit Up – Greenish: 10
Spit Up – Clear: 10
Spit Up – Brown: 10
Spitting Up the Rainbow (spit up all colors): 50
Getting Spit up on twice before grabbing a towel (Double Kill): 25
Brown/Mustard poo: 10
Yellow poo: 10
Green poo: 10
Black poo: 10
Orange poo: 10
Pooping the Rainbow (poo’d all colors): 50
Crawling: 25
First steps: 50
Babbling: 25
First words: 50
Sleep in swing: 10
Sleep in bassinet: 20
Sleep in Crib: 20
Slept through the night: 100
Finished Newborn diapers: 10
Finished Stage 1 diapers: 10
Finished Stage 2 diapers: 10
Finished Stage 3 diapers: 10
End of diapers: 25
Potty Trained: 50
First day of School: 100
First ‘play date’: 25
First haircut: 10
First baby food: 25
First solid food: 25
First nightmare: 25
First aspiration: 50
First book read on own: 50
First ‘I love you’ said to parents: 50

Totaling 1000 points, just like your common Xbox game. 36 “achievements” for 1000 points, to be exact. So far I’ve got 10 achievements for 135 points.

Thoughts?
