Why I Always Leave a Note in Their Lunchbox
Kids are incredibly resilient and will be just fine, really happy even!

It gives my kids something exciting to read from me in their lunchbox as I try to use words that they are currently learning in school. It also reminds them I love them and can’t wait to see them after school midway through their day. And sometimes, knowing that can change the rest of their day.
It gives them a confidence boost to know I (we) am (are) thinking about them.
I timed it when I wrote the above note this morning – 4 seconds. That is it. 4 seconds to write a quick note on a napkin and tuck it into their lunchbox. 4 seconds to give your child a little mid-day boost. 4 seconds to challenge them to read something. 4 seconds to reassure your child how loved they are.
Notes can be left on napkins, paper towels, cloth towels, I have even broken down and used a tissue once!!!
Try leaving your little one a note in their lunch today and discover how good that it makes your child feel. Share your story with us!
