Q: My daughter had a baby shower and received a lot of nice things. She wants to send a “thank you” after the baby is born with comments about the item. However, I say she should send it now and send an announcement later. The baby isn’t due for over a month, and the shower was this past week.
A: You are correct. Notes should be written quickly, for your daughter will find herself busier than she imagines very soon now! She can always remember who gave what and share a photo or an additional thanks after the baby is born, but it would be a great idea to get those notes out within a month of the shower.
