On the inside of BuhBuh's Star Wars lunch box I wrote, "I love you and God love's you too! Have a good (with the o's of good making the eyes of a smiley face) day!!"
My thought was on the mornings that were busy and I didn't have the opportunity to write him a note, he'd have a permit message reminding him that he is loved.
I thought it was brilliant!
He asked today WHEN I was going to take that off of his lunch box and that he had tried to wipe it off with little luck.
I told him it was permanent marker.
"UGH!!!! MOOOMMM!!! When I'm in college, my roommate is going to see that and ask what that is and then I'm going to have to tell him that my mom wrote it then he'll laugh and I'll cry."
I didn't have the heart to tell him that
A. he most likely would not still be carrying that Star Wars lunch box when he got to college and
B. He would probably really, even if secretly, like seeing a note like that from mom when he's in college.
But then again, I'm just mom....what do I know, right?
In the meantime, let's just enjoy 3rd grade, yummy lunches packed in our Star Wars lunch boxes and permanent messages from mom.
