Advent In An Hour: Dec 7

December 7, 2011 | By Brent Almond | DESIGN STUFF, LESSONS LEARNED

This Christmas has been particularly fun because JJ is now old enough to get that something special is going on. We say “Night, night tree!” before bed each evening, he loves repeating his new favorite word “snowman,” and enjoys calling out all the colored lights. Which, in case you’re wondering, are wed, gween, bwoo, wite, peek, and aye-oh (that’s yellow).

It’s also been a bit of a learning curve… for all of us. A lesson Papa and I learned? Don’t put breakable ornaments where JJ can reach them. What JJ learned? Yes, it’s a ball. No, it doesn’t bounce.

    This is my favorite one so far! And so true, must have spent the first 5 or 6 Christmases with kids with only the top half of our tree decorated because the kids would pull off the ornaments. Still won’t let a glass ball be placed on the tree for exactly this reason. šŸ˜‰

      I remember when my youngest brother was a toddler, my Mom ā€” instead of always having to keep my brother in check ā€” put the TREE in the playpen. Not pretty, but pretty smart. I should have followed suit! šŸ™‚
