I was stalling the Christmas Tree "putting up" event. I love my tree, I want the ornaments to remain intact...you know...free from 20 little fingers grabbing at them all day. I asked around for baby proofing ideas and my boss told me this:
Wrap a bunch of presents (empty boxes even) and place them around the tree.
It worked! I thought Kyle the climber may begin a journey to the top of the tree but he has stayed away, content to sit and look at the lights. Luke swats at the lower branches...that's about it.. so far so good.
When we were putting up the tree I played my favorite Christmas CD...which is The Barenaked Ladies - Barenaked for the Holidays. My favorite song?
Elf's Lament. Take a listen HERE
Which made me search for a comparable CD. Fun for both adults and kids. No luck...
What do you listen to at Christmas time? What makes you dance and smile and feel the true spirit of Christmas?
