My 7-year-old wrote perfect “content” this morning. It was a simple “I love you mom” note. Why so perfect? It was straightforward — no message-confusion in those four words. It was personalized, with the crayon-written words in my favorite color, green. He drew a black border — makes his message stand out. Most importantly, he added the words “mom.” He was writing to me and only me. Perfect.

(OK… so maybe this post was a little corny. Love notes do that to a person! I’m laminating this one in prep for the “I hate you” notes, looks, etc., when he’s a teenager.)
