I’m not sure when I started loving music?  But I love love love it.   My kids have inherited that love of music in a major way.  In the car they shout out the name of the song and artist of every song.   It’s cute until they fight over saying it first.  Lately there have been some fun song lyrics.  I thought my kids would get a kick out of if I turned the lyrics into printable lunch box notes.   They were a hit!

Julia’s by far favorite band is One Direction.  Josh even surprised her and her best friend with box seats at a 1D concert this summer.  SO FUN! I knew that I had to change “Best Song Ever” to “best daughter ever.”  Pretty sure Julia would agree with that statement.

Ok so did you guess?

    I beg to differ where “junior high might not think these are cool”, because my daughter is 13, and in the 7th grade, she loves music, and her notes in her lunch or breakfast box, and I just know she will just love, love, these “music notes”. Especially the fox one!

  10. Nance says

    Ok Want to know how sad things are about me.
    Out of the 8 songs, I didn’t know ANY!!!
    Sadder still?
    I only knew two of the singers.

      Ha! That’s ok Nance. I only know these songs because my kids love them. :) But I do love Sara Bareilles- she’s my favorite!

      I thought we had escaped that song and then a couple weeks ago my daughter came in to her brother and said “DREW! You have to see this.” And now it’s all stuck in our heads. :) xo

      Awww thanks Corina! It’d be fun to do some that are just drawings that itty bitty kids would be better able to understand too. Preschool lunch maybe? :)

  11. says
