Surprise them with little gestures of love. They'll remember!

Amelia is on her sixth day of first grade. Last week went really well and I know she is going to enjoy her year. Check out a favorite memory she had last week:

I enjoy surprising her with little gestures of love. I hide small treats or notes in her lunch bag or by her bedroom door every couple weeks. In the midst of a busy day or the morning chaos, she can stop for a moment and remember that she is my sunshine.

When this little guy is big enough, he'll get them too! For now he has to settle for extra kisses and tickles at home.

Linked up to Really, Are You Serious for Mommy & Me Monday.


  1. You are right - they WILL remember! My oldest is 20 and she still remembers the notes in her lunch, drawings on her lunchtime napkins or the cards I would mail to her at home! Even though my son is homeschooled, I still like to surprise him with cards, special treats, or a fun field trip with Mom in the middle of a school day just because. They are only little once! <3

  2. I bet those little surprises mean the world to Amelia! I hope that she enjoys first grade :)

  3. Love this.
    I need to start leaving more notes in A.J.'s lunch since he is a voracious reader.
    Tell Amelia I like "Scittals" too!

  4. that is sooo precious!!!! I love how sweet your daughter is!!

  5. How cute! I put notes in my daughter's lunch box, too!
