They say that habits are created early in life when your brain is like a little sponge. Well, my mom certainly did that when it came to the subject of thank-you notes. We were always told to get our thank you's out ASAP. That habit has carried on throughout my life as it is something that I am always on top of. Now, I think I have trulyembedded this habit into my children's brains. Their thank you notes from Christmas were all completed before they went back to school but when I had both of them at the table coloring, I noticed that they were both very diligently working. When asked what they were coloring - I got the response, "We are working on our thank you notes." I guess you can never start too young in building good habits.
