The tree went up today. As neither of them had seen a real Christmas tree before, there was much interest and excitement. And calamity.
Putting a tree up with a toddler and a clumsy 2 year old meant this afternoon felt like a routine from Billy Smart’s Circus.
Within five minutes, Edith had tripped over the cable and pulled the lights off the tree; whilst Aud was happily eating one of the branches.
Then Aud ate one of the decorations. And then attempted to swallow a bauble.
It all added to the fun and the four of us have had a brilliant day.
Now, where’s the alcohol.
