Parenthood: Saying what you’ll do when you have kids and then having kids and not sticking to any of it.
I tried to hold off on getting a tree for another week but my youngest knows if he’s fairly relentless I will give in and he’ll get his way (not on everything. He still hasn’t gotten ice cream for breakfast). He kept asking for a tree even after I told him we would wait. It starts with ‘When are we getting a tree” to “So are we getting that tree today?”
Where do you stand on a real tree for Christmas? For me, it’s real or don’t even bother. One tip I learned a few years ago is when you first place your tree in the stand, fill it with hot water. This softens the sap and the tree absorbs the water easier making the tree hydrate quickly.
