awesome links. I’m about to make my way through them now. Imperfection has actually been on my mind a lot lately as my five year old has been very heavy on the “I WANT TO BE PERFECT!” thing. I actually wrote another letter in this category in addition to the one you linked to above. (thanks for the link, by the way.)

I feel that it is very important for kids to see our imperfections. :) Glad to see someone else has this on the mind as well.
