My ds is only 15 weeks but I will not be doing this.
I find thank you cards are such an old expectation that I'm not going to make him.
This year we only received gifts for him from family and friends we talk to a lot so just said thank you to them. I will expect him to do this but I don't think I'll do cards anytime unless he wants to
I think it's sweet she wants to help, id let her help.
I wrote from until dc could scrawl their name, then I wrote from then and they signed, next time they wrote the words thank you and signed etc, my eldest now does them all, half and half with my youngest!
I love to get thankyou cards from the littleies. I think it teaches manners and appreciation at a young age. Even a little scribble makes me want to hug them tight
From some relatives kids I haven't had any notion of them recieving money I sent them. One even lost £10 through losing the cheque down the back of the sofa until it was out of date and her mum asked if I would mind replacing it!
I get cards printed with a photo of my DCs on (14 mo's) and add a handwritten note underneath from me. I think sending written thank you's is ago of habit to get into and my relatives like reviving the pictures - next year hopefully they'll add a picture or scribble too.
I prob went ott but after my sad year apart from DD I did thank you cards for all our gifts and support from people with a picture of DD inside just to show how much we appreciated it. People did seem to love them. I got thank you cards for thank you cards which wasnt my aim!!
