Today I wanted to talk about a super easy and simple way to make your children feel like they have the best mommy in the whole wide world. Yup, there's a really easy way to trick them into thinking this ;)
My little girls are both in elementary school. You know, when they still kind of like you, need you, and will still claim you. My girls bring their lunches to school every day. I tried to convince them for years to just buy but they don't want to. I'm going to admit it, it would just be so much easier for mommy if they would buy their lunches.
When I was a kid, my mom packed my lunch everyday and I'd beg her to let me buy my lunch and she wouldn't. I don't get why my munchkins are so adamant about bringing their lunch but I figured if I was going to have to pack their lunches, I might as well make it fun.
Since the beginning, I've always written notes in their lunches but it was just a straight up note thrown in there with everything else. It has evolved over the years into something a lot more fun and I have to admit, I really love it. Well, you should probably know that other than Barnes & Noble, which is my favorite place on the planet, the craft store is a close second. So that might help you understand why I love jazzing up my girls' lunches so much.
Okay, back to making your babies feel special and loved...and proving you're the coolest mom around.
