A wee conversation with my mother regarding marital bliss and family planning.

Me: There's no specific timeline in mind. But I think ST's mother has already started knitting.

Mom: Just think about it... really think about it.. how soon do you want to have to start moving everything you own that's smaller than a softball to a shelf more than three and a half feet off the ground?

Me: I think I'd never really considered the home-decorating aspect of this.

Mom: Think about it. It makes for an interesting looking Christmas tree.

That's my mom. Eyes on the prize.

Oh yeah, there's a WHOLE home decorating aspect. THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS!! That's where the phrase comes from. ACTIVE TODDLER.

I ended up writing a whole post just about this.

I just keep imagining this Christmas tree that's naked from the waist down and all embarrassed.

I'm a foty year old bachelor, so what the frak to I know?

But, you'd think you'd want some alone-couple time before starting a family. If just to have a few "easy" vacations.

The same it true (about the the Christmas tree) when you have cats. We can't even put the presents under the tree unless they're in very strong boxes, because the cats love to lie on them.

EXACTLY. we used to put the puffy fabric or crocheted/knitted ornaments all on the bottom of the tree for the cats. and we pretty much kissed goodbye any thoughts of ribbons or bows on the packaging because they just equaled lunch to my cats.

OK, see your timetable? nothing to me.

But the Christmas tree thing? All you need is a gate--like an unfolded puppy pen--that's decorated a little, so that the tots can't get right up to the tree.

Or do like my cousin did and hang only homemade paper and cookie ornaments on the tree, along with candy canes, for those first few "busy little fingers" years.
