Lackie's First Christmas
Lackie has really started to come into his own -- 3 toilet rolls in the last 2 days -- it's my fault as because he has been so good, I've been less vigilant.
BUT, I did realize that a full-sized Christmas tree with all of those sparkly ornaments might be a bit much for his self control.
His track record is dubious -- he's already had an operation because two days before he was to come home with me, he ate a whole lot of stones, had an emergency operation, it was touch and go....but he lived to tell the tale. Needless to say I'm a little paranoid about him and stones (or anything else small and swallowable), so the first thing I did was teach him to "leave it" in return for a treat....but I still worry.......
So, instead of our large floor tree and my collection of ornaments, and tiny stuffed bears, this year I opted for a 4 ft. tree (purchased on a whim at Loblaws as I'd decided not to have a tree this year)....and thank goodness I got this tree as it has added the needed touch of Christmas to our first Christmas with Lackie........who is waiting impatiently with Daisy and Caelee for Christmas morning and his first taste of "presents".
Have a good one everyone -- here's to a great 2010!
