The ex-perfectionist in me butted out!

This is the work of a 22mth old and not an ex-perfectionist mum! Whilst I still have a tendency to straighten things and show my children how to do things even better, I know my ‘fixing’ these pieces for my son would only suggest to him ‘you didn’t do it quite right’. And right now a 22mth old should be allowed to do it as his brain sees it and be proud of his own work!

hooray! you did it!

hooray! you did it!

Just a couple of things I’ve really learnt from the excellent Emotional Anatomy of a Yogi workshop I attended – excellence over perfectionism (we can never achieve anything perfectly according to quantum science) and enough of the martyrdom (let them lead their life, stop stepping in). Still on my to-get-better-at list!
