Jackson has only broken one ornament so far, but he's come very close to breaking several others.
I knew this Christmas would be difficult for him. He's only 15 months old, and so a Christmas tree looks like a huge tree full of shiny new toys.
We even took extra precautions and put the tree and decorations up while he was in bed, so he wouldn't see us handling things.
That didn't seem to work.
What's really frustrating is that he doesn't lay a finger on any of my mom's two Christmas trees!!!
Actually that shouldn't surprise me. He is always more obedient and happier at Nana's house.
I think that he thinks Nana's house is where he really lives, and that our house is the babysitters.
Anyway, hopefully that one ornament will be the only broken one this year. Luckily it had no sentimental value, just a shiny red ball ornament. He probably thought it was literally a ball and chucked it across the room. I didn't see it, I only heard it shatter from the other room.
I sort of remember having to deal with grabby baby hands with my other two kiddos, but Jackson is so much more destructive than they ever were.
Hopefully our Christmas decor will survive this Christmas!!
Enjoy the pics!!
Don't let that innocent face fool you!!
