Monday through Friday, my husband and/or I pack our children's lunches for school. And every Monday through Friday, we write notes to put in their lunchboxes. They aren't great literary works or life-changing messages (After all, we're writing them at 7 o'clock in the morning.), but they do serve as little reminders to our children of how much we love them and are proud of them. They have become an important staple of school lunchtime, and on the rare instance that we forget to include a note, our children let us know about it!
This past week I started working a part-time job (which I haven't done in a decade!), and I am taking my lunch to the office. Yesterday I found in my lunchbag a wonderful little note from my husband, letting me know how much he loves me and is proud of me. I can see how a person could get used to reading these things each day!
Mama Question: Do you stick notes in your kids' lunchboxes or anywhere else? How do you think it affects them?
