Candy Canes & Christmas Trees

December 10, 2006 at 10:18 am Leave a comment

In order to get the maximum enjoyment out of my Christmas tree this year, I put it up the day after Thanksgiving. I started the tradition of hanging candy canes on the branches near the Darth Vader and Disney ornaments. I don’t think they make the original peppermint ones anymore (since all I could find were specialty flavors), so I bought the Willie Wonka Gobstopper brand. While immediately taking me back to my childhood as it was one of my favorite candies, (inserts flashback of Kate pulling out the sugar ball that had changed a different color and proceeding to show it to her jealous friends) I neglected to think of it’s appeal to my own children.

 Today, I found out the reach of my two year old. She shook the tree, so half the ornaments fell off. Grabbed her candy cane, and proceeded to eat it from the inside out. Allyson was very adept at sucking the candy out of the wrapper and then spitting the waste on the floor.

Yes, I could have stopped her as she approached the tree, but the curious side of me wanted to see how smart she was. I have no reservations about saying that my daughter would definitely survive, should I perish in some unforeseen napalming incident. Today, she proved she is one of the fittest and smartest babies I have had the privilege to know.
