    Feel better Duxxy

    High - Younger daughter started crawling

    Low - Younger daughter started crawling. - Now that she's mobile she can get to all the little toys and stuff like cheerios that older daughter tends to leave around the house. Just one more thing for Mrs FH and me to worry about.

    Yeah right and a highly mobile 2 1/2 year old to leave things for said vacuum to pick up

    She did already. Offspring #1 took the ornaments off as quickly as my wife put them on and Offspring #2 kept grabbing for the lights on the bottom of the tree. I wouldn't be that suprised if I see the tree sitting out in the snow when I get home from work today

    Same antics over here at my place...4-year-old "rearranges" the ornaments (she is already rejecting my sense of style) and 9-month-old attempts to use fallen artificial pine needles as toothpicks, despite her lack of teeth - that is, when she's not using the boughs to pull herself up to stand.

    To make the holidays even more special, my mother-in-law (in a passive-aggressive attempt to drive me completely insane) insists on giving my kids Christmas decorations that SING - a horrible little artificial tree that blinks its huge buggy eyes and has a mouth that snaps open and shut while belting out "Deck the Halls", and a fuzzy mouse in a hat and scarf that squeaks out a few bars of "Let it Snow".

    Someone please pass the Kaluha...

    This year I almost decided not to put a tree up because of this. Last year I had my husband put a hook in the ceiling and attach the tree to it to keep it from constantly falling to the ground...

    This year my older son (5) went to fiddle with the Christmas tree lights and got an electric shock (That would be the low point of the week too) They are new lights too, I have no idea how he managed to do that, or what exactly he did, but at least he is still alive and he is now scared to touch anything electric.

    High point of the week is probably when the above mentioned son brought home the Christmas present (framed handprints with a poem) he made for me at school and insisted on me opening it right there and then
    ps. This is just my opinion in the matter.
