Thank you notes

Well, Caroline is 14 months old and I'm finally writing her thank you notes for her birthday presents. I kept nagging at her to get them done, but she just hasn't gotten around to it, so I decided I needed to step in. She better not make a habit of this, though! I'm not writing these again next year, Caroline!

Thank you notes are usually one of my most dreaded chores, but I am actually having a little too much fun with this. Writing thank you notes for a baby is a lot more fun then writing them for myself. Example:

"Dear H and E,
Thank you so much for my giant penguin and Puma track suit you got me for my birthday! I really love my giant penguin. I like to crawl over to him and grab his beak and bounce up and down and yell and YELL!!!!
Love, Caroline"

Will they appreciate it? I don't know. But at least it makes writing them less boring for me.

"Dear Grandma and Grandpa,
Thank you so much for my birthday money. I wanted to use it to buy fifty boxes of CHEERIOS!! But my mom made me put it in my college fund because she is boring. Thanks again! I really appreciated it.
Love, Caroline"

I could make it really authentic, if I wanted, and rip a bunch of pieces off each card and cover them in yogurt fingerprints before putting them in the envelope. But I thought that might be taking it a little too far.

Anyway, I'll leave you with a picture from this past weekend of Caroline in her Easter dress with pigtails in her hair (!!)...

You've gotta love the pigtails!!

SO CUTE! And I would love to get a card like that, much better than the generic ones everyone normally writes :-)

Yeah...Em is 14 months old and while I started to write her thank you notes, I ended up stopping becuase I was hungry and tired. So I got about 8 of them out and the rest of the people got nothing. I feel HORRIBLE!!!!! But not horrible enough to actually finish them. Bad Mommy!!!

I love pigtails so much and with two boys, if one of mine ever grows out his hair, I may put pigtails in.

You know, I don't think we did thank yous for my son's first birthday. We're awful!
