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!!
Beyond 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!
