I’m big on thank you’s. I have my parents and the way I was raised to thank for that and it honestly baffles me how people can accept gifts, kind gestures or help without a simple acknowledgement.
After Christmas’s and birthdays my mum would make me call relatives to thank them for their generosity. I’m not bragging or saying I go above and beyond; I think this is the standard … Isn’t it?
Birthdays, weddings, no matter the occasion, gifts are thoughtful whether they’re money in an envelope or a hand made craft.
Well this is the standard I want to set for my children. Those that brought gifts for Jaspy and Rhys have, or will soon (I sent my last batch in the post today) receive thank you cards.
These were so simple and cheap to make on Vistaprint, although the delivery was ridiculous. £14 for 3 day delivery which I think should be the standard time anyway, £8 for 7 days or £3.99 for 14 days!
So a little belated they may be but still, thoughtful thank you’s. When the boys are older they’ll write thank you letters or at least make phone calls.
The same will be for our wedding, I’ve already started looking at thank you cards along with our invites and R.S.V.Ps.
What’s your take on thank you’s? A thing of the past or a staple in your parenting?
Thanks for reading!
