If my kids would just let me do it for them it would come out 'right'!
See this is where I fail. We're making that newspaper fort and of course, all the kids want to get in on the action and help. Their ideas are HUGE and most likely not realistic, but they just keep trying until something comes together. I try to hold onto my temper. If they would just get out of my way, I could make them the best fort that has ever sprang from a mother's mind. The problem is, my sons want the best fort that has ever sprang from their own minds and I'm in their way. LOL They came, they saw, they took over and suddenly my neat and tidy fort is a spaceship/house that is not that sturdy.
BUT THAT"S OKAY! That's what I have to tell the perfectionist in my head. Yes, I was the one who started making it, but I'm 29 years old. I should just let them have at it. If I made it my way, then it would be mine, not theirs.
