My OCD vs. My Three Year Olds

"Make yours, like mine."
Raleigh St. Clair

If you have never seen The Royal Tenenbaums you won't get that reference. In reality I said mine was just an example and that they could make their flowers look however they wanted too. I had to sit on my hands and bite my lip to keep from offering "helpful" advice. They were beyond excited with the way they turned out and they glued every single piece on all by themselves while I cheered them on while battling my inner nature. I do not want to create perfectionists.. I know that is not really up to me but it is such a handicap to success and happiness in life that I am fighting myself at every turn to keep from pushing them in that direction. I think we are well on our way.

You've come a long way, baby. =) Remember ketchup on the table at Rockola Cafe? =)

I'm in the foxhole on the other side of your bunker, soldier. Just keep moving...
