Dear Everyone Who Has Given Me or One of My Children a Gift During the Past, Oh, Say, Two-and-a-half Years,
Thank you. I meant to write a thank-you note. I really did. In fact, I even drafted one. (In my head.) I used to be really very good at thank-you notes. I am a firm believer in thank-you notes. And yet. Somehow, the thank-you note is one of the things that has fallen by the wayside in this life of mine. This life. Of three kids.
But, I am grateful for your generosity. Your thoughtfulness. On holidays. And birthdays. Sometimes, for no particular reason at all, you’ve given one of us–all of us!–a gift. And, now, finally, I thank you.
Also, if it helps you to not send me a thank-you note, by all means, take me off of your to-do list. In all honesty, every time a thank-you note arrives in my mailbox, the guilt of my own thank-you delinquency returns.
Very thankfully yours,
Jen (and her also-thanking-you family)
Remember that “Best Parenting Blog” thing? The voting that was supposed to end last week? Well, turns out the site had a little glitch–maybe you noticed–and voting wasn’t as easy as it was supposed to be. So. The glitch is fixed. And the voting for nominations has been extended. And Sarah and I would be thrilled if you gave it another try–or two or three. Click on the icon over on the sidebar; or click here. Thanks!Jen Writes, motherhood, three kids
