And a demon one at that, at least she is now, can't see why 2 months or so will make a difference! .
We usually have a six footer decked out to kingdom come. Last year had a twig with half a dozen B&Q baubles thrown at it (9 months pg). This year was looking forward to the big tree again but I mistakenly thought I'd get a delicate, gentle, fluffy child, not Pansy Potter the Strongman's Dotter!
So where to put a tree. I don't have playpen to protect it so am I looking at a 3ft branch on a high table?
I have never put my tree behind something or up high........and no accidents yet.
you can only try it and see what happens. you might actually get lucky and find that as it is so big and awe-inspiring she will just look at it in wonder and not realise that it can be touched/climbed/pulled over......even my houdini monster never realised that.
if there is any way of tying it to something fixed tho, that might be a plan.
We're planning to have a medium sized one with unbreakable ornaments and will just have to see how DS copes. I'm hoping that letting him play with a few of the lower down ornaments will remove the temptation to climb/pull over the tree!
i agree with psycho- have gone through four kids- first christmas's they were between 6 and 9 months, 2nd they were between 18 and 21 months. never had any problems, i have a 7 foot tree with loads of decs even at low levels and they were always perfectly happy to sit and look at the flashing lights rather than try to play with it.
Hmm....you are all very optimistic! I would bet my granny on DD pulling the whole thing down on top of her within seconds. I might do it gradually. Y'know, decorate the lowest branches and leave for a couple of days. When If she pulls it down I'll abandon and get a small one but if she leaves it alone I'll go a bit higher!
