Ok, so I need to get the tree up. I've been dragging my feet. Two dogs have never stopped me, but a 15 month old (shit, ok, almost 16 month old) has me frozen in my tracks. How on earth do I keep him out of the tree? There aren't really a lot of placement options and I can just see him pulling, yanking, and playing with the lights, ornaments, branches, etc. Ok, so it's not like he's a cat, but I'm seriously terrified of him yanking the damn thing over on himself. So before I get the boxes out and all the decor that goes with it, I need some ideas. How do I keep him out of it? And honestly, did your kid ever even get into the tree?
