Putting up our Christmas decorations was different this year. Pre-Elizabeth I fondly imagined we had numerous "baby-safe" ornaments for the bottom of the tree. Today I realized that nearly all of these are choking hazards and/or no match for a busy, busy baby.
Brendan's family lore includes a story about toddler Brendan using presents as stairs to access the glass bulbs. I used to think this was a rather quaint story. Now it's just slightly terrifying to realize that breaking ornaments is a bit of a family tradition.
