Does sending E-vites to a party make it ok to send E-thank you notes? Ugh, I'm such a stickler for sending notes, but cards and 6yo writing and stamps, oh my!
"Don't ever do that again" is not something that one competent adult should ever say to another competent adult. Talk about disrespectful.
Do you make your kids send thank you notes?
As kids, we had to send a note before having the $2 that was tucked in a card! I send thank yous, and have my kids do the same, especially if they did not open the gift in the presence of the giver. What's your 'policy'?
Why do people not RSVP? Here's the process:
You get an invitation. You respond either that you are available/want to go, or are not available/do not want to go. You mark it on your calendar or trash the invitation, accordingly. Right? Easy.
Working from home does not mean that I have infinite flexibility in my schedule. In fact, I am going to be so bold as to say that it makes my schedule more rigid, my windows of availability less frequent (and not just because of my children). So if you're supposed to call me at 1:00, and don't call me until 1:30, don't expect me to still have an hour to give you.
(I'm not speaking directly to any of you, just venting. But can I get an Amen?!)
My boys are pretty good with table manners; at the start of dinner they wait until everyone is seated and served before eating, yet they think that as soon as they are done, dinner is over. Baby steps...
Mind Your Manners Minnie Monster is an adorable children’s book about…manners!
Minnie Monster does not like to mind her manners. She thinks it’s more fun to eat with her mouth open, interrupt, and use her sleeve as a tissue. But when she finds herself without any friends, she knows she’ll have to mind her manners if she wants to get her playmates back.
Written in a rhyming pattern and illustrated in an adorably-simple way, kids will laugh at Minnie without even recognizing the all-too-familiar behavior!
This is a great book for teaching manners, or for giving kids the same little refresher course that Minnie needed!
Special thanks and congratulations to author and illustrator Lisa Traugott! We can't wait to hear from more of Minnie's friends!
Do you have a phone curfew? Hours during which you welcome phone calls? I usually feel like it's safe to call most people between 9am and 9pm. When my phone rings after 10pm I get nervous that something's wrong.
Having cell phones (or teenagers!), change these rules a little, but what are your safe times?
My husband slurps his soup (let's call it one of those things that I used to find a cute quirk and now find annoying). Our 2-year-old was eating quite nicely and neatly until he decided to, quite exaggeratedly, copy the slurping. Yea for going backwards...Haha
With a love of children and a passion for reading and writing, Kelly decided to share her experiences with others through the pages of the Crib Notes book and site.
