To try to avoid this, I do my best to make sure that Jude understands its importance. Not only do we usually send out Thank you, Easter, Halloween and other holiday cards especially from him to his little buddies and cousins, but I also have him help me send out other mail as well.
I love how excited he gets about it! He gets into his tractor with all the mail by his side and drives down the driveway with me following. Then he positions his tractor perfectly so her can reach and place them in there himself.
And some of them get a little extra love (spit). <3
