My girls never liked to eat school cafeteria food so they always brought their own lunch from home. When they were in elementary school, I would pack their lunches for them but by the time they reached middle school and high school, it became their job to pack their own lunches.
Today though, the tables were turned on me when my youngest daughter packed a lunch for me. I had never been so thrilled to bring a packed lunch to work!
First off, she packed it in her own lunch bag. I don’t think she realized though how strange it would be for me to carry this into a medical related facility. LOL!
I was flattered she let me use her lunch bag that she had special ordered at the beginning of the year! But what tickled me the most were the notes.
When they were younger, I used to put notes in their lunch bags. I didn’t do it everyday or even often, but once in a while I would surprise them with a note or an extra treat when the mood strikes me.
Here’s what she wrote on the notes outside the bag:
You said not to pack you lunch but I went ahead and did it cuz I don’t want to leave half the enchiladas and rice in the fridge, plus you have to pick me up twice.
Love lots, ~Mara
P.S. Don’t forget to read the notes
Have a good rest of the day!”
So when I opened the bag, I burst out laughing when I saw all these notes on just about every item:
It just made my day. I thought I’d share it with you because I still can’t stop smiling
And while we’re talking about packed lunches, check out these awesome lunchbags that this dad draws on for his kids. It puts most of us moms to shame. LOL!
