I am not a Perfectionist

When I say this I truly mean it. I am not a perfectionist. That is the the truth. I find it to be most true when I am attempting a craft or cleaning my house. Perfection and me are just not meant to be (I should totally stitch that on a pillow) but it would not turn out just right .

In School I was a very average student. I was not horrible nor amazing and received mostly B’s and got my first C- in home EC class none the less. Which foretells my future home making skills to T!

There was one thing in high school that I put more energy into than anything else. It was theater I ate, slept, and breathed drama class. I do have to say I was the most perfect Antie Em in The Wizard Of Oz there has ever been in the history of all Auntie Em’s. So I guess there is always at least one exception to the rule. I even have yearbook picture proof!

Did I totally rock that apron smock thing or what? Sorry it’s just a side view but you can get the gist of my complete Auntie Em Awesomeness still.

I love that in the midst of this non perfectionist personality I have that I can be a mom that can learn from my mistakes so I hopefully don’t mess up my adorable daughters too much in the process. We will just have  to wait and see.

    You made an adorable Auntie Em!

    My kids are nearly done and I make daily mistakes. But thankfully so do they… we learn together.

    Yes, stitch it on a pillow! I’m definitely not a perectionist, either.
