I tried to raise them right. I tried to teach them to send thank you notes. And at least thank you phone calls...although thank you notes are better. But, I can't make them. Sometimes it gives me an excuse to call them...but if you have gone to all the trouble to make/mail/send/give my sons a present, please contact them for the confirmation that they received it. I am sorry. I tried to raise them better. Next time someone asks---Did Andy or James or Ben get the _____??? I will practice saying: "call them".
How about sending Grandmother a cell phone picture of the great-grandchild in the new knitted red vest? That way Grandmother can see whether or not it is too big. Just a thought.
