Recently had my kid's 1st birthday party; about 50 people in attendance. We opened gifts during the party and thanked people as we opened. All gifts were recorded with the intention of sending thank you cards, as I'm usually on that like white on rice.
Being among the last in our social circle to reproduce, I've noticed that TYs for birthdays aren't consistently sent. Even though gifts are always opened during the party, some parents have sent cards "from" the child (which is adorable), and some haven't. I'm not wedded to an idea either way as generally I'm of the mindset that if I'm thanked in person, that's enough. But, showers go against that logic, as everyone sends TYs for showers, so, I don't know.
And you know what... I'm just tired and lazy right now and don't want to.
So-- the poll:
NWR- Thank you cards for child's birthday 32 votes
Send thank you cards for your kid's presents!
Thanking them in person was thanks enough.
