Perspective on Perfection

Written by Libby Blumberg, Contributor

I am reminded almost daily of my desire to be an open minded mommy when it comes to my daughter’s artistic choices. There are a few things I have to keep in mind so I am actually helpful with her creation, as opposed to showing her how I would do it. Just the other day was no exception.

We were “renovating” her fairy house, made originally at a birthday party, with frosting, marshmallows, gumdrops, pretzels, and graham crackers. Thank goodness I was successful in explaining that the food needed to go, but the house could be redecorated. The shell was made from an inverted plastic tub attached to a piece of wrapped cardboard, with a little cut out for the door. So cute!

So, after enjoying a few stale gumdrops for the next day or two, I carefully cleaned the shell and we began our renovation. I thought we could use play dough, but it didn’t stick to the plastic. We kept it simple. Stickers. You can never go wrong with stickers. But here are a few reminders that came into play.

2.) She might just quit most of the way through and make you think it needs more. She has the attention span of a gnat. There might be empty spots that you are just dying to fill in. Nope. Don’t do it. It’s perfect.

3.) It’s a toddler’s prerogative to change her mind. Even though she wanted to make a cute little fairy to put inside, “her mommy eating a donut” was the final artistic choice. Perfect.

Our renovated fairy house is proudly displayed in the living room, already losing some of its stickers. Even so, it still maintains its importance. It’s just perfect.

There are some really fun fairy house DIY ideas on Pinterest. Check them out, try them out, and remember, no matter what, it will be perfect.

 

1.) Remember that this is 100% her deal. No matter what, this house is going to look exactly how she wants it. And it will be perfect.

I was very excited to catch this picture. Talk about Fast Food!

Boggy Creek Airboat Rides

We received complimentary tours via Kissimmee Guest Services.

We went to Orlando, FL recently and decided to try out Boggy Creek Airboat Rides. I’ve read about them, heard about them and seen other bloggers having fun there, but in the 30+ years of living on Florida I’ve never been there.

 

There are so many wonderful things to do in Orlando other than the parks. This trip we stayed away from the parks and ventured outside our normal vacation.

 

It took about 30-45 minutes to get to Boggy Creek from our timeshare. It was long ride fro the children but along the way we saw a different part of Orlando. It was more country and not a lot of “entertainment”.

Enjoy one of four unique airboat adventures and idle along canals to find exotic birds, turtles and the Florida alligator wallowing in their natural environment. Then soar atop the swamp water at speeds reaching 45mph. You’ll feel like you’re flying through the wetlands as you enjoy the best Everglades experience in Central Florida.

 

We did the Scenic Nature Tour 1/2 Hour. No reservations are needed and the tour leave every 30 minutes, 365 days a year, from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM. We had to wait a bit for the next tour but there was lots to see in and around the store.20140722_150454

When it was our turn we all got headphones to block out the noise and my daughter received a life jacket.

Our first sighting was an alligator. We only saw two on our trip, but that was okay. We’ve seen them around Florida plenty of times.

The scenery was beautiful although it was a hot day.

We saw several cows in the marsh, lots of birds, dragon flies and a bald eagle.20140722_155931

Our tour guide was wonderful and funny. He’s lived in that area all his life and knew the marsh like the back of his hands. He suggested we come back for a night tour and we’ve decided that the next time we go to Orlando that’s what we’ll do.

After the tour we stuck around to see the baby alligators and the kids got to hold him. See our pic above.

Boggy Creek has two locations and are open 365 days a year.
