I got my house lights working again, am listening to Pandora’s Christmas station, imagining that it’s snowing outside, and laughing about what Beau said to the Children’s hospital worker who told us they don’t have Christmas trees there anymore because someone got offended by them. Now they have a big nutcracker in the entrance instead.
Beau said, “As a man, that offends me.” The worker didn’t even laugh. I think he’s really bummed about the Christmas trees!
Well this year I’ve got two! I was thinking today about how fortunate it was that we trimmed the tree before Oliver’s surgery. He was able to help…or at least take them off! He adored it. He ran around the tree and yelled, “wow wow wow!” the whole time. Today he’s been sad because he can’t stand to reach them. I’m glad he at least got that special time before he became so immobilized. And I get to spend the rest of the season not worrying that he’s going to destroy all the ornaments :) God bless us, every one!
