After 3 weeks of nagging, coaxing and pleading we have finally finished writing our Christmas thank you notes!
My 5 year old does enjoy crafting and making things, but in the aftermath of Christmas when she has a brand new leap pad and Tangled DVD it has all seemed somehow less appealing. It is hard though when they are in school all day. They are tired when they get home and there’s always other things to do like reading and snack and then tea and bath. I do miss the days when I had her at home all to myself all day.
Difficult as it is, I will always encourage my children to send a quick note to say thank you. I think gratitude is a very important life lesson. I can’t guarantee they will always be hand-made though, not after this year!
