  1. I love the idea of being ok with “less ugly.” Such a necessary lesson for all of us Perfection seekers, and you’re so right that even the pursuit of Perfection is inherently flawed. Love this!!! Great post and adorable project. Love the pics! ?

  2. I love this post and your garden activity. You’re right- kids won’t realize if something is “picture-perfect” or not. The process is definitely more important!

  3. This is adorable! It’s also a very, very good point. I like how you said, “Sure the outcome is “picture perfect”. But the process? Oh! the process is devoid of all the value, especially when it involves your little one(s). Every activity kids lends itself to invaluable learning, fun, and memories.” Love it. So. Much. It’s so easy to lose sight of what is *really* important. It’s not the way it looks, it is the experience, the learning, the fun.

  4. Awesome idea. I’ve been meaning to grow an avacado seed with my little girls. You’re so right about the pursuit of perfection too! Life gets messy, but that’s what makes it wonderful.
