I wrote a submission a few weeks ago regarding my daughter’s birthday party and how to ask for money as a gift.
Well, the party has come and gone, and it was a great time! We ended up requesting that people bring a children’s book with an inscription from them on the inside cover, and that’s exactly what we got! My daughter now has a very nice library of personalized books that have already been carried around the living room and thumbed through at bedtime. She also received a few toys, all of which are designed to be educational and are not obnoxious in the least.
The thank-you notes for the books and toys have been written and sent, and I thought my list of thank-you’s couldn’t be considered finished without sending one to you and the wonderful commenters who snatched me back from the brink of gimme pig-ness. So, thank you for reminding me that all gifts should be appreciated, and thanks to the commenters who suggested the inscribed books. 0928-11
