Getting my girls to write their thank you notes has been no small feat. First, I had to read to them who gave what… and then told them what to say. Next, they had to pass the completed thank you to the other… so the other could also write the same thing, but on their own stationery.
When I felt they had the hang of things… I left the room.
Me: Dear Mr. and Mrs. Smith? Are you kidding me???
Kid 1: Yeah, so what?
Me: So what??? Do you see what’s wrong with this???
Kid 2: We did exactly what he label says.
Kid 1: Yeah, we don’t know who these people are!
Me: You call then Bubbie and Poppop!
