Thinking Thursday: Perfection

Anna June is not perfect. This is not news to anyone, except her.

Today, she celebrated her 100th Day of School. (When we were kids, this milestone was not acknowledged. Now, it's a big deal.) she had to color 100 tiny pictures, based on a coloring key. She was to leave the moon-shaped pictures white, but she colored them yellow. Once the mistake was discovered, she had a full-on come-apart. Bless her little heart.

She is so used to doing everything great, and when she doesn't, she can't stand it.

I hope she doesn't stay in that phase long.

Here's a puzzle we put together, perfectly.

There is actually ALOT of pieces in that puzzle, and w/ similar shapes too. That couldn't have been easy!

Yes, we both had to work together on the puzzle. It has 100 pieces! She had fun doing it, though.

And, yes, I heard about the meltdown from her teacher before I heard it from her. Mrs. D emphasized she doesn't expect perfection and I try to emphasize that, too. I want her to do her best but she doesn't have to be perfect! It is frustrating to make mistakes!
