Christmas trees and one year olds do not mix

I've had to redecorate this room so many times, I'm getting dizzy.

Our Christmas tree has been up now for about a week and a half. In that time, I have had to redecorate the bottom third of it no less than four dozen times. Our littlest one, who turned one in August, is completely entranced by the tree. She calls all of ornaments that are in any way anthropomorphic (snowmen, animals, elves, Santas, etc.) “babies” and insists on pulling them all off – one by one – to give them kisses, leaving a pile of destruction in her wake. 

Several times a day, our tree is pretty much naked from about 30 inches above the floor on down.  I know what you’re thinking. I’m thinking it too. “Where is the supervision?”

  1. I think we got lucky with both of our girls. The biggest threat to our Christmas tree has always been the dog sniffing at ornaments or thwapping them with his tail.

  2. The funny thing is that for YEARS our dogs were the ones pulling ornaments off the tree. This year? FINALLY, they’re not interested, but they’ve managed to pass the torch to the baby! It IS pretty funny, actually.
