I don’t do it often, but I love putting notes or jokes into the kids’ lunchboxes. Recently I was out of town and I made the kids’ lunches the night before and put in a note for them to find after I’d left. When I got home, Amelia said the sweetest thing:
“Mom, when you wrote me that note in my lunchbox it made me feel really good. It made me feel like you were sitting right next to me and made me know that you were going to come back home soon. “
This girl. *sigh* I adore her.
