Some Things Stay the Same

Like if a two year old sees a cookie, he WILL eat it…even it it is twenty years old and hanging on the Christmas tree within reach.  He bit his head off – literally!!

Poor gingerbread manBeyond poor gingerbread man, our other breakable ornaments have remained in tact.  My two-year-old HAS touched our Elf on the Shelf, so I’ve had to keep him in higher locations.  Otherwise, it has been a delight seeing Christmas through his little eyes.

To calm a tantrum on a car ride at night, we quickly pointed out pretty Christmas lights, and that abruptly ended the screaming and crying!  Last night on a quick evening errand, we took turns naming colors of lights as we drove past.  It was not only adorable, but fun! Cheers to this magical, wonderful season!

Merry Christmas!

  1. I love this time of year and this age too. My daughter is almost 3 and is really in the holiday spirit. I distract her in the car with singing. As soon as I feel a meltdown coming on I ask her what song do you want to sing? She always says “Jingle Bells” and that always puts her in a good mood.
