Earlier in the year, I started putting little notes into my son’s lunchbox. I went with a variety of messages like “I love you” and “I’m proud of you.” Besides the fact that he was sometimes embarrassed, I could tell he actually really enjoyed getting a message from me every day.
Then we started using a Talkatoo. These cute little charms are small recorders. You can record your voice saying a short message to your child and then send them off to school. You get up to 30 seconds of recording time and you can then lock it so it doesn’t get accidentally recorded over.
Each Talkatoo can be a charm on a backpack or be worn as a necklace. They have several adorable designs available. It’s $16.99 for one; use coupon code save10 to receive a 10% discount.
