My mother, sister and I are waiting for thank you notes for the rather generous wedding shower gifts AND wedding presents we gave to her and her husband TWO YEARS AGO. None of us got so much as a kiss-my-ass.
I was raised in a home where we used manners. I was raised in a home where we wrote thank you notes. Period. Amen. I have instilled this habit in my girls. They may not really know how to write yet, but I write the notes for them or they draw pictures. When they are older, they will be expected to do them or they won't keep the gift. And as I am writing this, I am panicking, thinking I may have forgotten to write a note for a birthday gift Genna got after her birthday--shit!
Am I being unrealistic? Too uptight? Too Sanctimonious?
