Will it survive?

So the tree survived the drive home.  But can it survive THIS:



First he unraveled the ribbon from the ornament, then he ate it.  Like an apple.  In fact, he said "Ahh-pull" as he bit into it.  Yes, that is soot on his face.  He ate a candle before I caught him.  Of course, that was before I heard the crash of half the lights and ornaments being pulled from the tree.  Lest you think I'm a neglectful mother, all of this occurred within two minutes of me putting underpants on my two year old. Sad looking, isn't it?

That would be why ours goes in a corner and the couch is moved in front of it - no access for little hands!

You might just have to decorate only the top half of your tree for a few years!

i have been postponing putting up our tree this year for the same reason. Max has done well with one the past few years but Zakky has no bounderies!!

Hahahaha! I think that will be our story next year. We might have to put the huge play yard fence thing around it like the Gosselins. Jack is a cutie, though!

Oh man! Look at the mischief in that little face! We just put our tree up a few days ago and already, the bottom part has been thoroughly rearranged.

I expect my brother to have the same issues with little Chris. He's four and he still picks up EVERYTHING, and it is potentially in danger of being thrown once he does. It's the fact that they have to be so damned cute when they're mischievous that gets me! I'm gonna be such a sucker when I'm a mom.

Good luck tree!
