Last week, my son's preschool had a fundraiser at a bouncing place.  If you have not been to one of the bouncing places, it is an indoor moonbounce and entertainment place.  The "equipment" includes blow-up slides, boxing rings, obstacle courses, and just regular moonbounces, depending on the vendor, location or franchise.

Some of the adults were so excited to bounce too!  It is a simple concept:  jump up and down and let the giggles come and the energy work itself out.  There must be a sense of freedom that comes with bouncing because kids just love it.  Where else can the young and young-at-heart come together for such a simple concept like fun?

I was cleaning up my desktop and saw a link to a website about creating your perfect day.  I wondered if I believed in a perfect day.  When would perfection matter to me?

It made me think about the long weekend I just experienced.  If you are raising children, having a day that is free of meltdowns, outbursts, or constant redirection and full of cooperation and politeness could be considered a perfect day.  Or, you could view the internal peace you feel regardless of the meltdowns, outbursts, or constant redirection you may experience. 

For me, I had a near perfect weekend in that I was well-rested, had good breakfasts (my favorite meal of the day), a great workout, and new experiences (one of which included giving my incredibly patient 4 year old his first haircut from me).

With the strength and peace I experienced, I do not need perfection.  Near perfection is just fine with me.

I was pleasantly surprise this morning when I ran an errand and stopped in a women's clothing store to see if they still had a dress I've been eyeing.  When I spotted that dress, I said inside "Yes".  It almost felt like I won bingo.

Well, the dress was on deep discount (Victory #1).  I started to worry when I saw only 3 dresses left.  One of the new dresses were in my size.  And one of the other dresses were in a size I'd like to wear.  So, I tried on the dress in my current size.  It did not fit well but not in the way you think.  It was way too loose (Victory #2).  Before getting deflated, I decided to try on the second dress in the size I'd like to wear.  Yes, size does matter!  It matters to me, now.  I could easy fit the second dress. 

Decision time - do I take advantage of the sale price by buying the second dress?  Or, do I hope I will find a dress I like in the size I'll wear when I need it (two months from now)?  I bought the dress.  I'll keep the tags on.  If I cannot wear it, I will return to the store and buy a smaller size.  Size will continue to matter to me.

Now that my son changed preschools and he gets his lunch at school rather than having to do the lunch-making routine every night, I got to enjoy a few leftover snacks.  After my workout today, I grabbed an individual - sized Hummus and wheat crackers.  What a simple snack to savor!

 

My son loves the Hummus, which I simply call bean dip.  Every time I called it "Hummus", my son became confused.  Although I'm all for using the correct names, titles, and labels, he was eating the Hummus and I was happy.  Now, I'm happy today eating my simple snack and savoring this treat!
