Thank you notes

My daughter just had a 3rd birthday. I sent the invitation via paperless post. Do I have to handwrite the thank you note or can I send an E- thank you note?

I would agree that a hand-written note with as much contribution as your daughter is able to make (perhaps a scribble signature) would be the best way to go.

Well, did they send you an e gift for your daughter or did she open real presents? I think it is a nice thoughtful gesture to hand write something. This day of technology is really ruining human interaction and what is considerate.

An E-thank you is okay to thank people for attending, but you should send a handwritten note for anyone who bought a gift for her.

When J was that age, I just bought simple folded stationery and had him draw a picture on it. Then I would write "Thanks" and we'd both put our names. I think it's great for the child to be involved, plus all of our loved ones loved getting a picture--they found it much more meaningful than a note from me. Now J is older and I have him write a few sentences, but he still draws a picture.
