Christmas Preparations

Homemade christmas

My homemade christmas decorations – the challenge is making them toddler-proof!

I was so excited about christmas this year that I put the decorations up on 30 November. We have the tree on our kitchen counter to stop it being so tempting for Henry. I’m sure it would have only been about 30 seconds before Henry decided to try and climb it, and instead ending up under it.

All my christmas shopping is done too, and we’ve just bought Henry his big present. It’s a Smart Trike DX; a bright green trike that we can use instead of the pushchair on walks. Henry is at that stage now where he hates being put in his pushchair because he wants to see the world. He likes to see what’s going on, and he loves to feel like he’s a big boy.

So for christmas, we’ll give him his trike (which his daddy has promised to build so I don’t have to!) and hopefully he’ll enjoy going for walks again. He had so much fun being pushed around in it in the shop - giggling like a cutie pie! Though he made quite a fuss when we had to take him out of it…
