Lunch Love Notes- Give Away



The other day I was watching my kids do their homework, and I was thinking how I wish I could do more for them.  I want to be, and I strive to be, a perfect mother.  I want to welcome them home each day with a big hug, and a warm chocolate chip cookie.  I fall short of perfection more often than I would like to!

I have since resigned myself to the fact, that warm chocolate chip cookies, just aren't healthy.  BUMMER.  So, my ideas of perfect motherhood have to shift and change.

I would like to be a mother who gives her children notes of encouragement, everyday in their lunch box.  I would like to do this, but it just is not realistic.  I barely get the kids out the door with their shoes and socks on.  Mornings are a serious rush of insanity.

So, in my quest to do better, to be better, and to streamline the "betterness" I came up with these stickers.  They are 2 x 2 inch stickers to send a little message to the ones we love.  I hope as my children find these notes of love, they will be lifted up, inspired, and generally feel that warm fuzzy I want them to.

So, I printed a few sheets, and luckily, I only had a few printer issues (ha ha).  I have 3 sheets to give away.  Want to win one?  Leave your name in the comments, and I will draw next Monday.

  17. Looks much better than the little post it notes I leave in my son's lunchbox which typically read "don't forget to bring home your lunchbox". He's always leaving it at school. :) I'd love to win a sheet!

  23. These are cute and a great idea. When I was little my sis and I would leave notes for my parents on their pillows, we would then wake up to a note. Notes are way better than cookies. Last forever!

  26. I have a few kids in my kinder class, I work in part time, that get notes in their lunches and it is so cute to read them. This one dad writes his notes on a paper towel and tells his son that he is his hero. So cute, thank you for the fun idea and the reminder of how important the little things are!

  37. I would love those! I need some serious help in encouraging my daughter. She doesn't like any form of verbal praise, so it is hard to show her I love her and raise her self esteem.
