Luka is a pretty amazing little boy...well he is not that little anymore he is 7! But every since I can remember I am constantly finding "love" notes around the house. He always comes home with a note for Sam or JJ and I from school. If he misbehaves he most likely will write an apology note.
Our son loves to write notes! I was thinking about it this morning and it totally reminds me of my dad. Funny that even with genetics and distance as barriers kids pick up on things and develop habits of family members (parents, siblings and even grandparents).
My father has always been BIG on notes. I can't tell you the amount of letters/cards he wrote to my mom and continues to write to her 40+ years later. It is very corny, but so beautiful. He never misses a chance to write Luka and Sam his little love notes from Miami. Many we have up in our house. Luka really treasures his thoughts and silly drawings and I guess he has picked up the tradition.
Here are two notes I found yesterday after we spoke to him about listening to mommy and the babysitter. The one for Sam..well that was just spontaneous brotherly love. I love the little Ninja Turtle he drew at the top (Sam's favorite).
Sam can't write yet, but he does get excited when his brother comes home and says "Sam, I have a surprise for you." This usually means Luka has a note or drawing for him. Sam feels like the most special little brother in the world at that moment.
Wouldn't it be great if I had the time to scan all these notes and make a book...for now the blog will have to do. Dad, you should gather all your notes/letters/cards. That would be a real page turner!
