Have you ever sent a note to your kids in their

lunch bags or backpacks? I use to send one everyday with a smile circled in a heart, and signed it with I love you. They always thought it was neat that I would remember to put it in their lunch bags and their friends would see it too.

  • Many times.... but they are too old for that now (so they say).
    BUt I will hide notes in their rooms when I want to give them a pick me up.
    My 15 yr old kept one note I gave her and I found it taped in her medicine cabinet.... melted my heart that she kept it.

  • My mom did this for me every so often and I loved it. I can't wait to do it with my son when he is bigger :) I did it for my hubby too when I used to pack his lunch. He kept them all :)

  • Yes and my son asked me to stop. Because some of his friends got a note, read it out loud, and it embarrassed him. So the only notes that I put in his back pack now are to his teacher. :(

  • First day of school. Once in a while after that. Never anything overly gushy or something that could be embarrassing.

  • Sometimes, but he is a bit embarrassed by it, so I don't do it too often.
