Love Notes

I always loved getting love notes from my mom written on a napkin or the outside of my lunch bag at school, but since my kids don't go to school I had to improvise. So when Maren was just starting to read a few years ago, I started writing her notes and leaving them under her pillow while she slept, kind of a combination love notes/tooth fairy thing. She was always so excited to wake up and find a note under her pillow.
Now my kids will also leave me notes under my pillow (sometimes asking if I will leave them notes) and it's always fun to get an "I love you mom" surprise note from my 5 year old. This is one of our favorite family traditions.
