Bernice, “I would keep sticky notes on his mirror in the morning. Telling him how much I love him.” Tip 5
I love the ‘love-note’ idea. I also sent notes in Michael’s lunch, sometimes in the middle of his sandwich.
I like to think my love-notes reminded Michael he always had me in his corner, especially when I wasn’t actually there. I’d also like to think it provided him, not only a sense of security but, a smattering of humor in his day.
As I wrote love-notes, in the early years, I imaged Michael proudly showing his friends. I speculate before long, my notes elicited an eye roll, followed by a smile that could not be suppressed despite best efforts.
I tucked love-notes in lunches well into high school days. If it wasn’t fun for Michael, it was fun for me. I can’t even suppress my own smile as I type and reminisce about those little sticky notes.
Thanks Bernice! Sounds like our boys had a great head start!
