Winter mornings are dark and cold, even down here in Florida! It’s hard to force myself out of bed in the morning and the kids are struggling too. As part of the 100 Acts of Kindness Project I decided to try and give them something to smile about when they wake up so I’ve been leaving morning love notes for them on their doors.
Morning Love Notes
It’s basically the same idea as “heart attacking” someone where you write sweet things on hearts and put them all over someone’s door when they are not there. Instead of doing it all at once I was inspired by a post a friend shared on Facebook to do one each day.
So every morning until Valentine’s Day when the kids wake up they can check their door to see what new thing I love about them I’ve added. I am doing different ones each day on each of my kids’ doors to make it feel more personal. Even if they are all good friends, I am not sharing that on the same day for all.

It’s not too late to start this at your house too! Just cut a heart shape out of construction paper and write something you love about your child (or partner) on it and tape it to their door or wall while they are sleeping. It’s just a sweet way to make your kids smile!
