First of all HAPPY FIRST DAY OF DECEMBER!
Which means I can let my Christmas freak flag fly without people being all ‘OMG IT IS ONLY NOVEMBER GET A GRIP’ or ‘NO ONE NEEDS THAT MANY DECORATIONS’ or ‘WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?’
Well as much anyway.
I DID wait until today to unveil this years Christmas banners (there are a few, not sure how many, just keep clicking to refresh to see them all)
So this year I let Boo decorate a tree.
Where ‘let’ means I found him in the back room with the lights and baubles I had earmarked for the swag above the sliding doors, and he was just too damn cute with the begging that I gave in.
I am an awesome mother.
(Shut up Damn Emos, I let you put the angel on top of the tree in 2005 and let you decorate your bedroom trees without too much interference BE GRATEFUL)
And what makes me even more awesomer if that is even at all possible, is I did not step in and ‘help’.
And I didn’t go and rearrange it when he went to bed.
Sure, my eyes twitch and I feel a little faint as I pass it on the way to the kitchen because ALL THE PINK BAUBLES ARE CLUMPED IN THE MIDDLE and the branches haven’t been spread properly and there is *cue shallow breathing* A GAP, but I have not touched the thing save wrap the green fur around the base to make it a little cheerfuller.
It is so a word.
Boo is so damn proud of his work he wants Santa to put all of his presents under HIS tree.
And keeps asking me to rate it out of ten.
I give it a billion times infinity plus one.
Do you let your kids decorate
one of your Christmas Tree s? And then NOT go and fix it afterward?
How do you rate his tree?
