What I've Learned

I have learned the hard way that a non-toxic/edible Christmas tree is only good in theory.

In practice, from now until Christmas, hypervigilance is required, because the dog and the toddler are milling about and surrepticiously trying to EAT everything off the lower branches of said tree. We've caught the dog more than once trying very hard to not be noticed nibbling popcorn off the lowest garland, and Aidan has more than once grabbed a handful of garland and tried to run off with it. I guess his idea is that if he can get it out of the living room without us noticing, he's got it all to himself to enjoy at leisure.

I can't wait to see what happens once the cookies are up. I cringe to think of it.
