2 Year Olds and Christmas Trees

I have come to the conclusion that 2 year olds and Christmas trees just don't mix. All morning long CJ has either been touching the ornaments on the tree and taking them off or turning the lights on and off. Joe showed him how to turn it on. It's easy. He doesn't have to mess with a plug or anything. Just a switch. He does it with his foot. But all morning long lights on lights off lights on lights off it's making me dizzy. I had the feeling this was going to be difficult. Much more so than with his sisters who if were told not to touch the tree they listened. It's just too much temptation for this little boy though. I refuse to have one of those trees where the ornaments are all up too high for the toddler to reach. I hate that. But every night I'm going to be replacing ornaments I guess. We did make sure to keep the ones that couldn't be broken off the bottom of the tree though and out of his reach. Thankfully the tree is only going to be up for about three weeks.
