The first thing Thud did when he saw the tree was pick up his toy baseball bat, look at me with delight in his eyes and ask, “hit tree?”
And welcome to Christmas with a two year old.
Christmas is all about the kids. Santa, the reindeer, the presents… it’s all for them and they make everything more fun and magical. There’s nothing like seeing the joy in a little person’s face when they see a christmas tree all lit up. They are the reason we go to so much effort.
They also ruin absolutely everything they touch.
It’s the Great Battle of Christmas as parents try their hardest to make it special and magical and memorable… and kids try their hardest to break and shatter and destroy everything in their path. They’re like drunken elves hellbent on making Santa pay for years of slave labour.
WHY WON’T THEY JUST STOP AND APPRECIATE ALL THE EFFORT? WHHHYYY?
