Does anyone know what the rule is (or if there is one) for sending thank you notes for gifts sent AFTER the baby was born? My little one is 11 weeks today and we received many sweet and thoughtful gifts since she was born. During the first couple weeks, I was able to stay on top this task since my mom was here to help with other things. But after she left, I've been on my own... and the thank you note list was moved to the bottom of my priority list.
I *think* most people would understand the craziness that comes with learning to be a mom for the first time (or the second for that matter), but my MIL sent a letter stating that some of her friends were asking about it.
I still definitely plan to send the TY notes, regardless of how late they are, but just wondering if there is an acceptable time frame to get these out.
