On kid #3, sometimes you flatter yourself that you are starting to figure things out. Then you get slapped in the face with (yet another) thing you failed to consider.
Holiday decorations and a pre-walking munchkin bent on terror and destruction, for example.
I left the nice nativity sadly tucked away in its box.
I put up the little tree which will, probably, most likely, I tell myself, not crush any little someones when they pull it over on themselves.
With the shatter-proof ornaments, because my kids have been known to eat tree-related holiday decor and, you know, safety first!
And the old, old, like from our haunted house old, gold garland.
And told the type-A part of my self that it's perfectly fine and everything will survive and he'll eventually lose interest and next year we can trust him with more of the decorations out.
Which is, I'm almost pretty sure, totally what's going to happen.
