Do people not write thank you notes anymore? I swear in the last year we've been to a few parties or given gifts of some sort to children and have not even received a thank you e-mail or phone call. Call me old fashioned but it's sort of rude, right?
Whenever the girls receive gifts for their birthdays, Christmas or any other holiday I make a quick list either as they are opening gifts or shortly after they've received them. Then I hand write a thank you note from either Annika or Annabel. The cards I have are usually blank and I glue a piece of Annika's artwork to the back of the blank card to make it more custom. Once Annabel is better with a crayon I'll start doing the same for her.
My parents ALWAYS sat me down after receiving gifts and had me hand write thank you cards. This is totally something I will be teaching the girls to do too. I just think it's polite and it shows that they are thankful for what they've received.
Do you typically write thank you notes or have your children write them? When you don't receive a thank you note what are your feelings? What do you think when you do receive a thank you card?
