Q: I once received a card with a gift for my newborn requesting that I not send a thank-you note and use the time for my family. I found it very useful at such a busy time. I would like to send the same thing to a friend but am not sure how it should be worded. This one was very simple and polite. Do you have any suggestions?
A: You may simply say what you wrote: “Please don’t feel it’s necessary to send a thank-you note. I would rather you just enjoy the time with your family and new baby.”
