My 5 year old son goes to school everyday with his Star Wars Lunch Box (we call it his “snack pack”) filled with a little snack and his drink (he comes home for lunch). I have started putting a little love note in his pack as a little surprise every day, so that he remembers that Mommy is thinking about him the entire time he’s at school. On Monday, I put this note in his pack (and yes, I know I am no artist, but kids don’t care about that stuff – its the message that matters):
When he got home, and I emptied his backpack and opened his snack pack, I found this:
Can you say, cue the tears? In fact every time I look at this, it makes me weepy. A little piece of paper I’ll cherish forever. My heart is full.
