Whenever we get the mail, our children ask if there is anything for them, and there hardly ever is as they are 6 and 4 respectively. To curb the disappointment, I converted a tiny gift card envelope into a note for my boy.
Inside I simply wrote that I love him, and that he is special.
Oh wow, mom! Thanks!
He continued to talk about his present, and thank me for it until it was bedtime.
That's a cool thing, and it made at least part of my day. I think it made part of his day too.
