The Whirlwind

There are no presents under our tree.

This by no means due to poverty. There are presents in the house. Plenty of presents. Unfortunately Christmas has come at a time in Abby’s life when she has absolutely no ability to control her desire to open things. It doesn’t have to be Christmas presents or even presents of any kind. Anything that can be opened will be opened, and even some things that cannot.

Even presentless, the tree has provided new opportunities for destruction. It has been a chore to keep any decorations on it. The floor is regularly strewn with baubles. Mrs H is a collector of Nativity sets and it is amazing the places around the house were the odd sheep, cow, or Virgin Mary shows up.

But soon Christmas will be over and things put away. Then all we will have to contend with are bits of the new toys everywhere.
