Getting four kids up, fed, dressed, packed and out the door for school each day feels a bit like running a marathon. And I'm doing it five days a week. There isn't a lot of room in our finely-tuned routine for one-on-one chats or extra hugs—even when I know they could use them.
So I sneak the occasional note into their agendas or lunch bags, to let them know they are never far from my thoughts.
To help keep my awesome readers and fellow lunch-makers inspired, I've partnered with Every Day Grace (owned by mom and fellow lunch-maker, Lindsay) to give one lucky reader some Love Notes 4 Lunch Totes.
Your kids already know you love them, but an little reminder never hurts.
Just leave a comment below, letting me know how the first month of school is going for you and your crew. I always appreciate helpful ideas and tips, too.
I'll randomly select the winner in a couple of weeks and Lindsay will send the love notes to your front door!
If you want to see what I got up to in the bento boxes the first week, find me on Instagram.
Easy not fancy, that's how I get it done.
