Love Notes

October 12, 2012

Written by Marykate Wurster, mother of 3 wonderful children, Gladwyne, PA

And then the other day my youngest tells me not under any circumstances, do not, no way, not at all, look in my bag. I agree – of course, no peeking, no way, not Mommy, I hear how important this is and then forget about it. Later that morning I find this:






Love how she used my name, there is something to that. And signed it.


Sweet, sweet, child. I love boomerangs.

    Oh what a sweetie!!!!! My heart melted about the notes and then burst with the note you got back. Boomarangs are a beautiful thing, as are the gifts we get as babies. :) xo

    Love this! I’ve also tucked a poem into a lunch once in a while. Poetry Foundation has a nice collection:
