When I was little, my mum would sometimes put little notes in my lunch box. She would write things like “your mummy loves you” and “hope you are having a lovely day” and there were always lots of kisses and a smily face! I still remember the warm feeling they gave me, when I would open up my sandwich, and see my mum’s familiar writing tucked inside the wrap.
I like to do the same thing for my own children. School can be a tough place sometimes. When your friend doesn’t want to sit with you, when your teacher gets cross, when you can’t do the maths work; it’s nice to know that there is someone waiting for you at home who loves you no matter what.
Do you leave love notes for your kids or partner? Have you found a note written for you? (I don’t think one ever outgrows the thrill of receiving a love note!)
