“I Love You Because…” Frames
Our lives as a family are busy. We have chosen to do the things that we love to do and are having fun but most mornings I don’t really don’t see my kids very much. In fact, most mornings I wake them (after turning on lights, telling them to get up 5 times and then move to panicked pleading) but then I have to leave for work. Being a teenager is hard, really hard. I want my kids to know that they are not only loved but why they are loved – at this age they want facts and evidence or they don’t believe it! I know that they really don’t hear much that I say with their morning and pre breakfast brain. I decided that I would make something quick and easy that they could read while they were getting ready and try to start their day off right.
Being that we are busy, I can assure you that these were EASY to make, are easy to do and cheap! All you need is two frames, paper, and a white board marker. You can change it every day or once a week. It is up to you.
