Positive reinforcement is such an important key when dealing with our children and spouses. Sometimes just saying “I love you” isn’t enough. Sometimes your significant other and those precious kiddos need to know WHY you love them. Everyone needs an extra pat on the back and a sweet little reminder of the things that make them so special and so very loved! I saw a post on Pinterest once with this idea and although it was just a photo that lead nowhere with no link, it looked simple enough so about a year ago, I designed 1 for each of my children and they got such a kick out of them I got to thinking we might need one in our bedroom too!
Dave may not be very pleased that I used his most recent love doodle for my blog but I don’t get them often so I would like to forever embed it into internet history! haha Sorry honey! I made one for the baby’s room too but she’s not old enough to appreciate it yet so I change it less often than the others and it’s more for my sweet memory. I leave a dry erase marker by each and although I don’t change them daily, I try to change them at least once a week. Every once in a while, I’ll find a sweet something written just for me too! It’s no grand gesture, just a little something that says “Hey! You’re pretty awesome and I love you for it!”
You can make your very own “I love you because…” sign too and remind the people you love what makes them extra special to you. All you need is a picture frame, a dry erase marker, and a printer! I’ve created a few downloadable printable signs for you but you can create your very own to match your child’s personality or decor. These were created in a 5×7 size so all you need to do is select the image you like best and print! There’s a little something for everyone-even the boys with legos and camo hearts! Just click on the link to view, print directly, or save and send to your favorite online print company. They sometimes look a little blurry when you first open the file but they don’t print that way, it didn’t for me anyway. Enjoy! ❤
