What comes to your mind when you think of milestones? For me, as a mom, it’s having a little one use “the big-girl potty”; crawling and then walking; saying her first words; starting preschool, then kindergarten; completing her first ballet and piano recital; and so forth…
I also think of milestones as birthday’s, anniversaries, and celebrating a baby shower!
I’d like to think that I’m doing by best as a mom. I try to feed her the right things, instruct her with different ways of thinking and processing information, learning to get along with others (even if you don’t want to!), to be forgiving & kind (even if others don’t deserve it), and to say thank you when others are helpful & encouraging to her.
So, I think that it’s kind of important to bring back some “old possibly forgotten” traditions that so many grandmothers & great-grandmothers out there hold so dear. Personal stationary has become a thing of the past. It’s easier now to just send an email or text message; or just pick up the phone and say “Thanks”.
I’ve decided that it’s time for my little one to learn the proper way of saying “Thank you”. We here at Raspberry Creative have come up with a cute little stationery card that your child could use to say thank you for a birthday gift that they received, or maybe just a random thing that was done for him/her. Whatever the case may be, it’s important to teach children that thanking someone is a way of showing respect and value of others. Check out this cute little card. It’s gender neutral, too!
