  • No, ours eat at school... I pop in and have lunch with them at school, they love it!

  • I once saw a second grade boy with a note from his parents in his lunch. I was close enough to read it, "We Love You! Remember not to play with Mr. Weenie!" I thought it was so funny.

  • My son just graduated this year, but while he was in school, I wrote little things on his napkin everyday with hearts & smiley faces. I would write scriptures, little pieces of advice, famous quotes, & little tidbits of wisdom, things like that. I recently found out that he saved them all & he had the most popular lunch table at school with everyone anxious to hear what the napkin had to say.

    My husband works from home now, but when he went to work & took a lunch, I wrote little love notes on his napkins too.

  • She can't read yet, but I have always put little smiley faces and hearts on the ziplock bags and tupperware. Lately I've been writing the names of what is inside in spanish and english to help her recognize words, but I still make the hearts and smileys too.

  • When they pack I always write on their napkin, or stick a cute sticker in their bag for them to have.

  • Sometimes I get flower or heart shaped Post-It notes and will put a note in. Especially on special days like the first day of school or important test days.

  • My 6 year old loves it, and if I happen to forget, she gets onto me about it!!

    My 8 year old informed me that it's "not cool" for him to get notes from his Mom. I think I'll ignore that, and keep sending them!! LOL

  • I do when my daughter takes cold lunch. She loves it! She is in 1st grade n learing to read, so i clearly make it simple. I think it just kinda reminds her of how much i love her n how much she means to me. I wish someone would do that for me. LOL
