Just another way to say ...I love you!

I found this story and thought it was appropriate since it is almost Father's Day!
I actually did this same type of thing with my kids lunches, when they were in school. Sometimes I would
get creative and not only draw on the paper lunch bag, but I would cut the sandwiches in different shapes or if it was a holiday ....such as Halloween. I would tuck some plastic spiders inside their lunch to scare them...I mean Surprise them. What kind of Mom would I be to want to scare them? You don't have to answer that:)
 Some times I would draw out pictures or notes to leave inside the bag and even wrote funny poems with all the Spelling words we had been practicing that week. The bottom line is...that your kids know you love them! Think of all the fun lunches my grand kids could get with such artistic parents! How neat. Congrats to all the amazing Fathers out there...it is not an easy job, so thanks!
Good Night dear friends!
Article: Father draws on his son's sandwich bags every morning before school for 5 years. I used to do this with my dad's lunches! I think it'll be a good tradition to carry on.

The art of a tasty lunch! Father brightens up his sons' sandwich bags by drawing a cartoon every morning before school for five years

One creative father has used his cartoon drawing skills to bring a little humor to his children's lunchtime sandwiches.
David Laferriere has been doodling on the plastic Ziploc bags with a Sharpie marker since 2008 - before taking a quick snap of his handiwork and posting it to his Flickr account.
The graphic designer has now done more than a thousand drawings which range from dinosaurs and monsters to goldfish and ducks. 
His children only get a look at the artwork when they open their bags later in the day.
Mr Laferriere, from Attleboro, Massachusetts, explains: 'The challenges are coming up with an idea and then drawing quickly and directly on the bag, every line counts.'
However the creative father's talents don't end there - he is also in charge of making the sandwiches.
