So am I late?
Am I not as festive as I should be?
What am I talking about?
Christmas trees and the decorations that go with it. Myself and mrs achie decided to decorate the house this weekend. So up to the attic I went to get all those boxes stored to the left of the attic door. Poor boxes were cold and had that lovely musty attic smell. Anyhow downstairs I went carefull not to fall with the overbearing weight of all that has been collected over the past 11 years.
So the decorating began, just like years gone by, the tree went up the lights went on, on with the tinsel and baubles etc etc. But unlike previous years we now have a problem, a 17 month old problem.
1 felling of the tree on Saturday night, 3 broken baubles, and some broken wooden decorations later the tree was tied to the banisters of our staircase but little achie presists. Of course unlike last year all these lights and glittery things are going to be very cool for the little one, but how pray tell can we stop her been so interested in wanting to pull everything down again.
We have tried the "hot hot" in relation to the lights, but in her head, little hands can avoid the hot lights, we have tried blocking the base of the tree of with our nest of tables but that just proves to be a way of her exercising her strength.
After writing this I look back at my original questions and now feel I am to early putting the decorations up and festive? well reading this I am starting to wonder.
Any ideas are more then welcome.
On another note a way to stop her grabbing my glasses (spectacles) would also be appreciated since she broke mine on Friday.
