The Undomestic Goddess Confessions: Christmas Decor Ed.

An irregular series in which I air my dirty domestic laundry - sometimes literally - in the hopes of .  . . of . . . I'm not exactly sure what, but it's likely one of three things: (a) publicly shaming myself into doing better wife- and mom-wise; (b) dragging y'all down with me into the anti-Martha morass; or (c) complaining for the sheer joy of it.

Because this will never be the blog you read only to feel ashamed that you have yet again failed to painstakingly hand-craft a papier-mache montage of the birth of Baby Jesus using organic free-range cage-free chicken or whatever.

O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree . . .



. . . how lovely are your naked-from-the-waist-down-thanks-to-the-toddler branches!

Stay tuned for my upcoming HGTV holiday special: "Christmas Decorating for the Under Two Set: Not Without My Stepladder".  . .

we just decorated our tree yesterday, and the kids broke a prodigious number of ornaments. I put all my favorites back out in the garage. (It doesn't help that this year we inadvertently bought a tree that is closer to a Christmas bush).

i'm dying. SO cute. cuter than, ahem, when my husband broke two strands of lights in less than an hours :)

Erin said...

Omg greatest tree ever! I'm sure you're not the only mom sporting a half dressed tree :)

Carly Anne said...

Hysterical. I thought of doing the same thing for our dog - who is much like a toddler, but sheds.

Wendy said...

Hilarious!!! Love it!

Jessica said...

Nice! I don't even think we're putting up a tree this year, so you are way ahead of us!

Hilarious! I am loading on all the breakable and fragile ornaments now while we are still childless. My mom had a whole set of ornaments that did not come out again until we were in middle school. She still tells me not to touch the special ones, I am clumsy!

We're pondering the table-top tree or half naked tree right now! Hubby is so adamant about the full tree that he's trying to figure out how to tether it to the wall!

Hilarious! I love Master P's face in that pic.

Our tree is in the study (front window of the house), so I'm thinking once he's really into things next year I might shut the French doors. I can't decide if that makes me a meanie or not.

Dying!! Mine isn't even up yet because I am terrified of what E will do to the poor thing!

Too funny! Last night my boss told me they were getting their tree today. I'm dreading dealing with a toddler and tree. I'm babysitting tonight and as soon as I walked into the house H started shouting "look! Christmas tree!" It was so sweet that I will put up with the tree (for now-once it has breakable ornaments on it I might rethink my position)
