Tipsy Tuesday: Thank You’s

October 18, 2011 at 12:46 pm Leave a comment

Last night I was sorting through some items in my son’s room and I found toys that are now age appropriate. It occurred to me that it would be nice to send a quick picture through text or Facebook to whoever gave us the toys.

The problem is that my memory is now fuzzy and the thank you note list I keep in my phone is too general. Friends visited us in early June and gave Kevin a “toy and rattle”. Hmm. Which toy? Which rattle? Kevin was effectively three months old in June so my husband and I were out of our minds due to sleep deprivation.

We saw those same friends six weeks later and this time I noted that they gave Kevin “a Gap owl onsie and plain blue onsies”. So I couldn’t send them a picture of Kevin playing with the “toy”, I can send them a picture of him in the owl onsie.

And I really want to thank them again. The initial receipt of the present is nice but when Kevin reaches the age when he can fit into an outfit or play with a toy I really do feel thankful all over again for the present.

If I had my wits about me when receiving presents from the start I’d be in a better position to express gratitude on an ongoing basis now. Good thing I figured this out before the holidays and Kevin’s first birthday.
