4yo DS recently had his birthday party. It was our first "friend party" and there were 6 guests there. At the party, I had to feed the baby, so DH supervised gift opening. He didn't really pay attention to who gave what, but he did put cards/gifts back together. The problem is that on the way home, my almost 2yoDD could reach the bags, and dumped everything out in the back of the van. I've been doing a lot of process of elimination, and thought I had it all figured out. Then I talked to my sister to double check that niece had given DS the racecar. Turns out she didn't, and now I'm not confident in my process of elimination.
I still want DS to send TYN. He's too young to write it himself, but I printed an outline "Thank You" for him to color in, and he colored a picture for each friend on the back of the card. My question is, what do I write on the inside? At this point I'm thinking of something like
"Thank you for helping me celebrate my birthday. It was a lot of fun to have you at my party, and I love playing with you at recess/playing soccer together/I'm glad we're in Sunday School together."
Then having him sign his name. Is that ok? Is it too generic? I'm not comfortable asking or double checking that I have the right giver/gift match ups with anyone but my sister. I met one of the preschool moms at the party. I do know for certain what 2 people gave, so should I make those more personal? Or is that like having 'A list' and 'B list' TYN? Am I overthinking this?
