I usually wait until December to start decorating for Christmas. I have to wait. It’s the right thing to do. We need to celebrate Thanksgiving first. We really should, and we will. BUT Bubby is so excited for Christmas this year that I caved. Last night, B pulled out the tree per my request, and I was initially mortified.
My beautiful white tree had somehow yellowed, carmelized let’s say, over the past year. No, no, no…this won’t do. I was about to ask him to take it down and I’d go buy a new one. Until…
Bubby came down the stairs. He immediately ran to our yellow tree (oy…it pains me to even type that) to embrace it. As in literally hug the tree. He loves it that much. What’s a momma to do? The answer is: Learn to love yellow and just embrace the season and his excitement. It is what it is and if he’s happy, I’m happy.
Happy Wednesday y’all. And happy holidays. Let us all embrace and enjoy. Rejoice in the season through the eyes of a child without stress or worry (for a change). I’m going to try, even with a yellow tree. Will you?
