After celebrating her daughter Annabelle’s fifth birthday recently, Sally Obermeder was concerned her little girl wouldn’t appreciate all her presents.
So the clever mum came up with the idea of only opening one gift every few days and making sure she wrote a thank you card for each one before she opened the next.
Posting a pic of Annabelle with her gifts on Instagram, Sally wrote: ‘I did actually tell her that she can only open one gift a week, then realised she’d still be opening gifts in 2020, so instead I have said one every few days and that you can only open one after a thank you card for the previous one has been written and posted.’
Sally said she didn’t want to be a killjoy but needed to manage the “generous gift giving”.
