    Reblogged this on Children Are Our Future Now!.

  2. Such a fun idea. It’s also a good reminder that there can be many definitions for “perfect”.

    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! ?

  4. LOVE the DIY patio garden! I want to do that! Two thumbs up!

  5. I love your DIY patio garden ideas. Sadly the end of gardening season is fast approaching but I’m definitely going to keep this in mind for the upcoming spring!

    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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Great ideas! Looks like you ladies had fun!! Are you going to give it a go again this year?

    1. Yes! Thanks to your inspiration 🙂

About Me

Hi, I’m Alana. When I’m not nursing cold, stale coffee, I usually can be found with the baby on my hip, barefoot, and racing after my two older kids.

Thanks to a degree in psychology and a free-range childhood backing onto an expansive evergreen forest, positive parenting and play-based learning are my passions.
