Receiving a note from a loved one means so much to anyone young or old; especially if the note is genuine, encouraging, or funny.

Since 2013 I’ve been putting a note in my son’s lunch. It started out just for fun, like no big deal; but then he kept asking me to continue to put notes in his lunch…even if it just said, “Hi!”. He said it made him feel good. Not only that, but the jokes sparked up giggles and conversation with his buddies.

How do I know this? Because he tells me, “Mom that was a funny note today.” Or “Mom keep doing the notes.” Or even, “Mom, Logan wants a note will you write him one?” A little note can make such a big impact, especially if they’re having a tough day.

But here’s the problem. There are around 180 school days in a year. That’s A LOT of notes! And that’s a lot of brainpower to think up a note. Parent to parent here, from my experience, after the first three weeks of writing my own lunch notes, my ideas fizzled and it became more of a chore than fun. I can’t be the only one! Hence the birth of Lunchbox Notes. My simple design keeps them focused on the words and leaves room for mom or dad to sign it. 

*Please note some encouragement notes have duplicates. No duplicates on jokes.

I’ve been a “mama on a mission” since my son was born in 2008. There is nothing more rewarding than hearing my son laugh and have fun. Isn’t that what childhood is about? We’ve created many ideas together, even some of these notes! Helping kids have fun is a natural talent of mine. In my professional life, I am certified in weight management and am a nutrition consultant. I am also a certified Life Coach and Life Breakthrough Coach. I love the outdoors, being goofy with my son, and I enjoy camping with the family.
