Why are the helpers so much LESS enthusiastic about taking down the Christmas tree than they are when it is time to put it up?
Putting the tree up, I was like chasing them off with a stick!! "Wait, don't put that up yet!" "Ahh! Don't step on that ornament! " "No, the angel goes on last!" "Please, just slow down!" "Look, now, see? You weren't watching and now you broke it!" etcetera, etcetera...
Taking down the tree: "Kids?! Hey, guys? Time to take down the tree.........guys?????"
(on a completely different note, has anyone else ever noticed what a weird word "guys" is? It looks so weird when I'm typing it...)
