You guys have to got try these if you haven’t already.
Julia has been doodling on her windows since last fall and I haven’t erased a thing. I went in the other day to wipe the slate clean so that she could draw some new pictures. As I looked at the window, I realized that in at least five different spots, she had written “Julia loves Mommy” in various places. She also “loves Dad” and her beloved kindergarten teacher, whose name she gamely tried to spell on her window as well.
So I took pix, wiped the window, and drew her a new love message on one side of the window. I left the other side blank so she can go back to drawing rockets and sun faces and more doodly-doos.
That morning she had actually been really sassy and naughty and I totally lost my temper with her. We hugged it out before she went to school, but let me tell you about the ache in my heart when I discovered all these ‘I Love Mom’ notes she had been putting on her window over the months.
