The Lost Art of The Thank You Note

My kindergarten son and I have attended three classmate’s birthday parties over the course of the past four months. We have yet to receive one thank you note. What’s up with that?

I have two sons – ages three and six. We have birthday parties every year for each of them and EVERY year, we send thank you notes. My general rule is to get them out within 10 days of the party. It’s just plain courteous. I hate to think, that in this day and age of “facewittertextmail” that we’re losing sight of the importance of a simple, hand written note. Don’t tell me you don’t have time. You had time to plan the party. You have time to thank people for coming.

Please join me in my effort to save the thank you note. Write a note today!
