Years ago, when Jeff and I were first getting to know each other while students in Jerusalem, he would sometimes unwrap a piece of gum, presumably chew it ;-), then use the empty wrapper to write a love note for me. When he handed me what looked like a piece of gum, it was actually a tiny love letter. Sneaky, isn't he? ;-)
Not too long ago, I told my kids about that; and now, it's not uncommon for Tobin and Shav to scribble a little love note on the wrapper when they have a piece of gum, and then hand it to me. They're learning from the best when it comes to romance, I tell ya! ;-)
Recently, when I was cleaning off the porch, I found another...ahem...unusual love note. On a piece of plastic cut from a storage box, one of the boys (Tobin or Shav, I'm guessing) had drawn a heart with a design in it, and over the top had written "i ♥ u. i ♥ u. i ♥ mom".
