I just received a baby card for my daughter born a week ago from her great-grandmother(my Dh grandmother). In the card was a Heloise clipping about sending thank you notes. Then on the actual card that I wil be saving she did not even congratulate us. Instead she wrote that she wasn't sure about sending money for the baby(she never once used her name) because she had not heard anything from us after giving my husband money when he visited in September. She included a $20 check .
She also complained to my MIL 3 weeks after our wedding when she had not yet received a thank you note(consider that I was 20 weeks pg at our wedding). At any rate I did get her thank you card out about 6 weeks after the wedding which I think is pretty normal. I am so annoyed that she couldn't even focus on the joy of our daughters birth. Also my dh never told me about the money she gave him(or my pg brain forgot) or I would have sent a card. Is this ridiculous? Does anyone know what that "appropriate" time frame for sending baby thank you notes is? I looked on-line for a Heloise etiquette clip of some sort becasue I am pretty sure it is 6mos-1 year for thank you notes,especially with a new baby. If anyone has a link to etiquette rules I would love to see it so I can print it off and send it in my thank you note-expressing to her how neat it is that we both share a love of etiquette!! Rant over.
