Another 14 days of love

If you’ve been reading my blog awhile, you know that last year, I started a little tradition where everyday in February leading up to Valentines Day, I send my kids off with a little gesture of love to remind them how I feel about them. Remember this?

It’s silly really.  But it does feel good to have this little thing that I do, especially because I’m a typical guilt ridden mother.  Guilt ridden because I have great kids, but I can be tough on them.  I bark orders at them to go to bed, brush your teeth, bring your plates to the sink, pick up your stuff, lose the tone!

And I feel badly about it sometimes, because they may feel as thou I’m a big contradiction when later that night, I’ll tuck them in bed, and whisper, you’re a terrific kid, you know that, I can’t believe that out of all the kids in the world, I got the best ones, and that I couldn’t be more proud.

I just refuse to raise lazy, unappreciative, entitled children.  Balancing my desire to be firm and loving is something that I work on, and this little tradition makes me feel good.  Sure, some days they didn’t care about the little love note I put in their lunch, but I did.

And this year I may not post about it everyday, like I did last year.  It was just a lot of work to take pictures and then post them, so instead, this year, I will try to let you in on the great ideas I find…like this one…..

Imagine getting a fruit in your lunch and on it is a sticker saying that you’re the apple of my eye!   Or I’m bananas over you! Well that is just what I found on one of my favourite blogs.

I knew you’d love this!

Enjoy, have fun and eat fruit.

    Tina…I love your blog. You are a younger, modern version of Martha Stewart. Thanks for the great craft ideas, home improvement ideas, recipes, and your honest and touching tales of motherhood. Can’t wait to read the book!!
