She's Practically Perfect in Every Way- My Mary Poppins Moment!

I Adore Mary Poppins, she's practically perfect in every way. About this time last year I met Mary Poppins.  Well, I ran after her at Disneyland and introduced myself!  Now, I've been to Disneyland umpteen times as I grew up in a nearby town.  But this was the first time that I got to meet Mary live.  I was tickled pink, a bit misty eyed and full of all the pixie dust that The Happiest Place on Earth musters up.   I mean….  I was Mary Poppins for Halloween back in grade school, I still have my hand made doll of her complete with white gloves and the flower hat…. I believe that a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.
I ADORE her… and here she was right in front of me full of attention.  I was able to contain myself and ask her a very important question… one that mom's around the world want the answer to.  "How do you do it, how do you get the kids to clean up?"  She ever so politely responded, "Everything must have an element of fun".  God, I love this woman… she is soooo right.  No one wants to pick up, but a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, in the most delightful way……
I asked my husband to take a photo of us and went along my merry way, as did Mary.  This past week Mary popped into my morning horoscope: Productivity ebbs and flows.  You'll have your Mary Poppins moment, though, and a "a spoonful of sugar" really will help the "medicine go down."  Try to attack all work in the spirit of fun.  So off I went and fabulous things happened that day…. I can picture Mary peering down from the sky; umbrella in hand smiling at me… her work was done.
