Hey, for all you people out there with a 1 yr old babies or toddlers this Christmas season, here's a tidbit for ya to help your tree stay upright.
If your child likes to play with ornaments, to tries outright to topple the Christmas tree, and you happen to have one of those hooks in the ceiling, for house plants etc, (I learned this from a neighbor), take some fishing line, double it up, tie it to the top of the tree and then to the hook and back, making sure to secure it good and tight, and your kids won't be able to knock it over!
All right! Yeah, baby. These are the kinds of practical tips parents need this time of year.
I should write a book. : )
