It all began when…
On his first day of kindergarten, I took a blank 3 x 5 index card and scratched out a doodle to put in my oldest son Andrew’s lunchbox. I drew another the next day, and the next, and continued doing this through kindergarten, first grade, and second grade! Go see the latest doodle!
This year, with two sons in school, I created a doodle for both every Monday through Friday, and also wrote Andrew a cute or funny poem! I’ve still never missed a single day through sickness, work, or other personal drama. Showing my boys this love has been my highest priority.
Andrew (8) and Toph (6) have both asked me to “keep doodling forever.” Between them and their youngest brother Xander, I see no end to lunchbox doodles any time soon. I cherish this labor of love and have reaped the benefits many times over in the form of praise and new friends.
