We (finally) finished the thank you notes from Alice’s birthday recently. Don’t judge. It ain’t easy to get a four-year-old to dictate her gratitude for a gift while I scramble to transcribe the words tumbling from her mouth before she declares, “I’m done! You decide what to say!”
I typically use a fine-tipped Sharpie to write notes, as they write on everything: thick cotton papers, photos, glossy metallic finishes… everything. My favorite note from the pack was this one:
Dear Owen and Mabel,
I love that shirt so much. So thank you. I love you really much. So thank you for the Alicesaurus tee-shirt.
Alice decided this and Mommy wrote with a stinky pencil.
