My ds has just left preschool today. As in the case of my dd who was there previoisly they were given a gift and card etc. However I think they must have run out of cards as my child received a piece of paper with same sentiment. Only signed by 2 of staff. Not sure if any other children were affected) My dd previously received a lovely card with her picture on.

Son not bothered now but may be when he is older.

of course he won't be bothered! He won't even remember pre school and he'll never know about the cards unless you tell him.

I think YABU. It's just not anything to worry about.

What do you think happened? Did the pre-school staff think
a) lets give a proper card to all the children apart from dee0468's ds just to show how uncaring and callous we are, although we will go to the trouble of buying and wrapping a goodbye present for him and all the other children.
b) oh no we've lost/run out of cards for dee0468's ds and he's about to go in 5 minutes, what can we do, we'll just have to write a lovely goodbye message on a piece of paper.

yabu
maybe they spent all the funds on pressies and couldn't afford cards this time
things do change and it won't have been the same as when your daughter was there

Other children definately did get cards this year.

YANBU, to wonder why your DS didn't get the same card as other children.

otterRus, is probably right with 'b) oh no we've lost/run out of cards for dee0468's ds and he's about to go in 5 minutes, what can we do, we'll just have to write a lovely goodbye message on a piece of paper'

It doesn't make it right, but it makes it something you question for about 5 minutes and then forget about.

'Son not bothered now but may be when he is older.'

Oh for goodness sake, he really won't care when he's older unless you make a big deal of it for years to come - and let's hope you won't. He is not bothered (wise child), and to be perfectly frank you shouldn't be either.

(Sorry not to be able to summon up more sympathy, but really...)
