My heart broke a little today..

While getting my daughter's school snack ready, my 5 year old said, "Mommy, I'm the only one in my class who doesn't get I love you napkins"....... :( I felt terrible!!! I always said I couldn't wait for her to start school so I could give her little notes, but it's something I totally forgot about!!!!! So, I wrote "I LOVE YOU" with a big heart ,I made the O into a smiley face, and I even gave her a sticker lol. Luckily she doesn't seem to understand it's the parents writing the messages because she was all like, "Where do we buy I love you napkins"? Lol. I can only hope she will be excited when she opens her snack today and sees that she has one too. I think I'm going to use a washable marker and start writing messages on her snack container that way it will be a little more unique.

The kids thought my mom was weird for doing that. I liked it especially when I got to middle school and she rarely made our lunches.

She will never forget the day that she opened her lunchbox and got her first I love you napkin.  She will hold on to that forever!  Maybe someday, start that with her own children.

I can't wait to hear her reaction to her napkin. She won't remember the day she didn't get one, she will treasure the days she did. It is the little things in life! =)
