The Christmas Tree's Natural Enemy: Babies

This year we anchored our tree to the wall  not because of earthquakes, but to protect against curious babies. Lucy would like nothing better than to grab the tree and pull it down on top of herself, shattering every ornament in the process.

Even with the precautions, the next three weeks are going to be tough. Lucy's favorite thing to grab is hair — though she will settle for fringe — and the tree is basically one giant mass of green tresses.

Lucy may not be able to topple the tree over, but she can stripmine the lower part of its pine needles and ornaments.
