The badge of honor affixed about the shoulder of a caring parent by a baby during burping. Like snowflakes, no 2 milk brooches are alike. These decorative regurgitation signatures are commonly gifted to the recipient prior to a special night out on the town. Some think that it is the baby's way of helping the parent look their very best just before departing. Sometimes a milk brooch can morph into a milk necklace, but we won't go there.
I was wearing an interesting milk brooch today on my favorite grey sweatshirt. It looked like an octopus swimming diagonally. I got several compliments on it.
