Our Christmas tree is now up, decorated, and looking like a project from a drug & alcohol rehab's occupational therapy class. A lot of ornaments from about 3 1/2 feet down and a pretty barren top. Some re-decorating is called for after everyone is in bed.

If you're ever in the mood to test the limits of your mental stability , try decorating a Christmas tree with the help of children ages six, three, and two. As Hunter S. Thompson once said, "I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to
anyone," and I'm likewise loathe to recommend repeating my experience, at least not without employing at least two of Dr. Thompson's remedies.

Man, that sounds just like the tree at my house. And don't forget the joy of finding the ornaments all over the house. The local two year old regards the tree as a place to find pretty toys.

Remember daddy day they'll be tall enough to place ornaments at the top of the tree. Enjoy the little years and the help you have now ...for it may not always be so.

p.s. Merry Christmas ...Hang in there!

p.s.s Why is there not a pic of this tree on here?

LOL! We just did our tree as well with similar results (kids are 3 and 4). I'm a first time visitor BTW (Jay from the Zero Boss sent me) and fellow dad blogger. You have a great site here!
