Thank-you note Torture
Growing up my wonderful mother instilled in me the importance and art of writing thank-you notes. I don’t remember ever minding this … but then again, I always have enjoyed writing.
Believing in the importance of formally giving thanks, I want to instill the same in my children. For previous birthdays and Christmas I only made my eldest (now 5 3/4) write his name and maybe draw a picture. But this year, since he can write, I made fill-in-the-blank thank-you notes for him. Also, I knew it would be really good writing practice for him.
Filling in the first couple weren’t bad … but, well, he’s a spoiled kid with a fair of amount of family and friends, so … he had quite a few to complete. I only made him do one at a time and only a couple a day … but, boy, did he make it drag out.
So now, mid-January, they are finished and sent out. Finally!
…. Just wait ’til he find out that we are participating in a 100 Acts of Kindness Project and the first challenge is … THANK YOU NOTES!
