  • I have a combo: baby/toddler & kid tree, complete with ornaments that keep getting removed and put back in the wrong spot.

  • I let DS put all the non-breakable ones up himself this year. I exhibited extreme self control in only relocating 3 of them after he went to bed (the ones that were double up on the same branch), but the rest is as he did it.

  • My kids are two in their middle thirties and my youngest 25, no quite like this for me though, now as adults the tree will still be full Christmas morning with tons of presents, and the tree still holds those ornaments they once made when they were young....

  • pretty much-except the kid one- we never put homemade stuff from school and projects on our tree. *I hung stuff on the fridge or the walls or whatever-but not on my tree! *with the exception of one glass ornament my daughter made

    and we never left the bottom undecorated at the toddler stage- they didn't bother it that much

  • LOL! Yep- only we still have to keep the more fragile ones above the tail wagging zone :p And we haven't moved on from the special homemade ornaments from the kids either. I happen to like them & will keep displaying them until they fall apart :) And finally, yes the mass of presents is smaller, but that's b/c the crap they desire is smaller but more expensive! :p

  • We used a tabletop tree when he was a toddler. Didn't keep him off it, though

  • No, we've never had room for a big tree so no issues like that. Not old enough for the teen tree ;o). The stuff the kids bring home I hang around the house instead of on the tree since what they make is usually huge!
