If you’ve been reading my blog for any time, you are most likely aware that Mr & Miss 4 both suffer from a little separation anxiety.

I’ve previously clued you in our Love Connections, and how they have helped the kids handle being separated from me.


I wanted to share with you another little tool I use: a good ole fashioned Love Note in their lunchbox.

But my kids can’t read, you say.

Well, neither can mine. Thankfully their teachers are only too happy to read them my little notes.


Now, your next point might be around what do you write in them, or how do you present them.

Don’t worry I’ve got you covered!


When I first started writing little love notes to my kids, it was a hastily scribbled note. No frills, no fluff – but the kids got a kick out of it.

As I became a little more prepared I have added things like stickers or stamps, and even created my own “Roses are Red” style poems.


Even though these notes are hastily scribbled, it’s the sentiment behind it that counts.

I don’t put them in their lunchbox every single day, but I do make sure they receive a Lunchbox Love Note at least once a week.


As they have responded so well to this, I’ve decided to add in some pre-prepared notes to mix it up with handwritten ones.
