Welcome to Shut Up About Your Perfect Kid

Therapy and sanity for ordinary parents of special kids.

Mark your Calendars! International Imperfection Awareness Day is Coming Friday the 13!

You see plaid. We see imperfection as in International Imperfection Awareness Day — Friday, April 13

Imperfection is quickly becoming an epidemic in America and in the world at large. It’s estimated that 6 out of 5 people are affected by some type of imperfection. Imperfection comes in many forms and may include, but not be limited to –

  •  Bad hair days
  • Accumulation of dust bunnies
  • Laundry pile backups
  • Unwillingness to adhere by the rules of white pants etiquette
  • Procrastination (more on this later)
  • Lack of organization
  • Forgetfulness
  • Distractibility (“Oh look a bird.”)
  • Poor driving
  • Multiple nominations for “Worst Parent of the Year”
  • Inability to calculate time zone changes
  • Preoccupation with wine and wine-related activities
  • Napping in public places

To help create awareness and break the stigma of imperfection, we have declared Friday, April 13  International Imperfection Awareness Day.  Please join us in celebrating this heralded day by wearing something plaid, the official color of imperfection, or wearing some other outfit that highlights your imperfection. Additionally, we invite you to post your Imperfection Awareness photos on our Facebook page

Spread the Imperfect Word!
