Dilemmas of Decorations
Putting up Christmas decorations with children around is often a daunting task!! Every year I carefully rearrange those ornaments, knick knacks, and wreaths. But something inevitable gets broken (either in putting them up, putting them away, or just a casualty throughout the month). I always wonder if my toddler will pull the tree down on him/herself, if a fire will start because of all the plugs, or if my favorite nativity set will land on my baby's head.
I worry about those decorations and the safety of my kids, but at the same time.... I WANT to put them all up so my house looks festive!
So what are your tricks of the trade??
What do you do to keep your toddler's little hands off those decorations?
How do you keep your tree out of reach of your little ones?
How did you keep everyone safe from plugs, broken glass, and decorations dropped on heads?
Any other decorating tips you can offer??
