Put it up...Take it down

The little man has been driving me crazy ya'll! We put our tree up Tuesday night. Everyone was so excited, the house was all decorated. Even if it was 60 degrees outside and we were sweating a little bit. That bad boy was up and decorated.

Well ever since the minute my feet hit the floor Wednesday morning, little man, who is 3, almost 4, has been bustin' my chops wanting to take it all down. He just doesn't get the concept of leaving it up til Christmas. I walk in the living room and he is standing in the middle of the room with his hands on his hips, he says "Ok mom, let's put it up." I said "what??" He said "all this Christmas stuff, let's put it back up in the attic." I said "Oh no sir!" I have tried to explain ya'll; I really have. Hubby has tried to explain. But about every 30 minutes for the past 3 days he comes and tells me it's time to put it up, and we go through the entire conversation AGAIN.

This evening he started to say something again. I said "Whoa, if you are about to talk about the Christmas decorations, just zip it right now, cause I ain't listenin'. Yeah, that didn't work. 21 more days to go...oh joy!

I think it just kind of messes with him because we have to rearrange the furniture a little bit; o.k. A LOT. The love seat has to be removed so the tree can go in it's place. So I think it just kind of throws him off. He likes consistency and routine. And I have totally thrown a wrench into that. Well, he might as well get used to it...he as a long life ahead of women throwing wrenches into his routine. I'm just sayin'


  1. The funny thing is when it is finally time to take it down, he'll probably complain that now he likes it the way it is! :)

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Apron winner will be posted Friday!
