"I got a little emotional because I didn't know he was even doing specific days," said Sabrina.
It is often considered a mom's duty to ensure that the kids are happy while eating their lunches. While some moms go out of their way to pack food in innovative ways, some send notes to remind their children that they are loved. In one scenario, it is a dad who has been writing notes for his three daughters and tucking them in their lunch boxes. When his mom found a bunch of these notes her daughters had held on to, she had an emotional reaction which she shared on her social media page. With tears of happiness in her eyes, she wrote that her husband was "meant to be a girl dad."
Sabrina Clendenin, 33 told GMA she knew her husband Jordan and their three daughters shared a very intimate relationship. The fact that her daughters preserved the heap of lunch notes proves how much they truly cherish each other's company.
"What I laid out on the tables were not even all of them," Sabrina Clendenin said. "When I came across them all stuffed in a drawer, I was like, 'What in the world?' and then I started reading them and … I got a little emotional because I didn't know he was even doing specific days. Then she went on to talk about the days like "What am I Wednesday", "Fun Fact Friday" and of course "Motivational Mondays"
She then said how this concept is not new to them, but lately, he noticed that her husband was giving extra effort to keep it creative and fresh. Some days, Jordan would include a small drawing, a quote, a riddle, or maybe an interesting piece of trivia all in hopes of encouraging the children. "He just gives them this great confidence that I think every child in general needs growing up," Sabrina Clendenin said.
Her post on social media touched a chord with many parents. But it set an example for some dads about what they can do to bond with their children. Sabrina said, "There're some dads like, 'Wow, I'm kind of inspired to start writing notes and do that because obviously, it means a lot to them.'So I think that's really cute. I thought that was sweet to see all those dads be like, 'I'm gonna step up my game.'"
She talked about how she doesn't see this ending anytime soon. "I don't think he can stop now. I think he's locked in for life. They're gonna be in college and they're gonna expect those notes," she said jokingly. She said the "Fun Fact Friday" notes in particular have been a big hit with the girls. One of the users commented on a post from GMA saying, "They should somehow make a quilt out of this, and each of the girls could have one."
