... you realize that you didn't even think twice about leaving out a counter full of Christmas ornaments in her presence.
(A younger friend is coming over today and as I walked by the counter a large flashing red arrow appeared and reminded me that leaving out all the glass + delicate + pointy + shiny + colorful + precious objects was a very bad idea.)
(We have free Christmas tree pick-up and disposal, I wasn't sure what the deadline was and so I de-ornamented the tree and took it outside, haven't gotten around to finishing putting away the ornaments yet. Will do.)
Man, I loved it when she was a baby and a toddler but it's nice to not have to think about this sort of thing on a daily basis.
Christmas trees are very stressful from when they can crawl until they're like three.
