How I know evil lurks in my heart

I totally let my 4 year old son hang the very fragile and very ugly Christmas ornaments my hoarder husband insists we keep each year. And yes, a broom was involved. Several times. I also hung a few ugly stuffed ornaments down low. And as predicted, the dog found and ate them within 10 minutes of being let into the room.

I have a 16-month old...and I am totally stealing this idea. (My mother-in-law is always sending us bizarre ornaments from Florida...flamingos, things made out of shells or starfish, etc. I wouldn't mind a few of those meeting their maker!)

You are not evil - you are ingenious - after writing that I had to look it up to see exactly what it meant (besides clever) and now I like it even more..... the on-line dictionary definition was: mom-o-matic, resourceful, clever, discerning, original and intelligent ;)

But I love it.

Good plan...hubs mom kindly donated some of her crap and I keep hiding it when decorating and then the kids find them and want to hang them up...on the low dog level branches...

He hehehehehehe

Hee hee....you totally rock the freakin' house, lotta! I never thought about using the kids' powers for good instead of evil...Now, if you'll excuse me, the boys & I have some "projects" to work on before daddy gets home.

I have to say this: I want to go drinking with you. You rule. I'll even let you use my 300-pound-rapper's ID, if they card us.
