Napkin Notes

When our three kids were in elementary school, I rarely let a day go by without including a little extra something in their lunch bags. At the very least, it was an "I love you" note written on their napkins. Sometimes I'd write a riddle for them to figure out. On their birthdays, I would wrap each food item in festive paper and ribbons. That let everyone know it was a special day! —Karen Buhr, Gasport, New York
