I used to be. Now I have 4 kids. Two under 11 months.

I'm just happy to get through the day.

I would say yes, for the most part. It's not always a good thing.

Nope. I'm a "that's good enough" kind of person most of the time. The only exclusions are when it's something to do with work or gifts for someone, then it has to be perfect.

This. My life is pretty much ruled by that and OCD. It's maddening.

No. I never strive for perfection. It is unattainable. I only strive to do my best.

I am, but only for myself. I don't expect it from my kids. I do expect them to do their very best at anything they do.
