[Mom Time] lunchbox notes

Hey, everyone!
School is rapidly approaching!!
(9 sleeps!!  AAAGGGHHHH!!! LOL!)
Before we know it we'll be packing home lunches for ourselves and our kids.

My kids rarely eat school lunch.
Kenton would eat about once a week, home lunches the other days.
McKayslin eats school lunch maybe 3 times a month.
I pack a LOT of lunches!

And now, with Kenton's medical issues, he'll essentially be home-schooled, so I'll be packing him a lunch each day so he can somewhat stay on a school type schedule.

Ever since my kids started school, I've been throwing little messages into their lunchboxes a couple of times a week.

Their favorite "little messages" are joke cards with a note from me on the back.
I watch for awesome things they've done and tell them how proud I am of them.
Or if I know they have a big test that day, I'll make the note one of encouragement.

If you like to do this to, hop on over to the Latter-Day Crafters blog today to pick up a set of super cute lunchbox joke cards.
They're free.
(Please follow the LDC blog and leave a comment while you're there).
Just download, print, cut, and add to your home lunch supplies so they're easy to grab when you notice your kiddos need a little extra love.  :)

Have a great day!
See you tomorrow!  


  1. Hi Deb,

    thanks. These are great!
    Wishing you all the best and always thinking of you and your family!


  2. These are so cute. I'm on my way over.

  3. These are great! Wish I had little ones at home yet to send these with them. I'll use them with my grand daughter. She just moved & grandma is missing her:) Thanks for sharing & have been thinking about you a lot with the start of school. Hope things are going better! Hugs!
