    The hardest thing for me is letting go of my perfectionism when I play games with my kids. I have to find a balance between letting them play their way (they like to rush through the levels and get done as fast as possible) and teaching them to play the way I like to play (trying to get all achievements and really “completing” the game). The co-op play on the Lego games is an excellent example. Slow down, find the goodies. It’s not a race. And don’t even get me started about how I can get when playing games like Animal Crossing. Yes, I want the town to be perfect, and I want the museum to have all the bugs and all the fish, and I want every piece of furniture in a collection.

      I am so with you on this one. I have actually gotten more used to this by doing crafts with Pea. I am a bit of a crafting perfectionist (knitting not included :-P) so it’s a little difficult for me to see her go out of the box. She is neat and meticulous, but often a bit unconventional. The truth is what she often creates is more beautiful than I would have ever imagined!!

      That being said…I create 2 separate saves, one for co-op and one of my own! LOL
