The INSIDER Summary:

  • Meg Sullivan’s dad has packed her school lunches for years, including oranges he peeled for her, because he wanted to show her he cared.
  • On her last day of high school, he packed two unpeeled oranges with instructions for peeling them and a note that said “It’s time baby girl.”
  • She tweeted a photo of his note and the internet got emotional.

Meg Sullivan’s dad, Tom, has packed her school lunches since kindergarten. He would even peel her oranges for her, not because she needed his help, but because he wanted to show how much he cared.

“I could have put money on her lunch account,” he told Today.com. “But it’s one of those little things I thought was important, that she knows somebody’s taking the time to take care of her.”

On her last day of high school, Tom packed her two unpeeled oranges with instructions from Wikihow about how to peel them. In the margins, he wrote “It’s time baby girl.”

Meg thought it was funny, and then the message sank in.

“I felt like the note was like turning the chapter in my childhood and bringing me toward my new independent life as an adult,” she said.

She shared photos of her dad’s tender joke on Twitter, and the internet got emotional.
