The Toddler Blogs… What’s With The Inside Trees?
Hi, it’s X here with another of my Toddler Blogs. And this time I’d really like to talk to you about something serious. I think there’s a conspiracy and we need to get to the bottom of it, but the grownups are acting like there’s nothing wrong. It may be up to Toddler-kind to save the planet. Again.
You don’t know what I’m talking about? No, I don’t mean that strange orange man with the bad hair that everyone is angry with.
I’m talking about trees.
Specifically, trees inside houses. INSIDE.
What on earth? Trees belong outside. I understand house plants now, they’re pretty and Mummy likes to water them when she remembers (although sometimes that’s not until there’s lots of leaves falling off), but they’re not trees. Big, massive, spiky looking trees that should be in a forest or a park or something.
And the super weird thing is, they are popping up in houses EVERYWHERE. Shops have them. Our house has one. Grandma’s house has one. Even the CBeebies house has some!
What’s with the inside trees?
They have things on them, like lights and weird ball things that I’m not allowed to touch. And chocolate in foil that I’m not allowed to eat.
Now, we need to figure out what’s going on, and why the grownups seems both so excited and stressed out by them. Are they some sort of alien invasion? Are they rising up in the face of something called Climate Change? And are they ever going to let me eat the Santa shaped chocolates?!
Needless to say, Toddler-kind, we need to do something or the world might be doomed!
What I suggest is a massive Toddler meeting, but perhaps we’ll be better off waiting until this “Christmas” thing is over – I wouldn’t want to get tangled up with this Santa fella and those Reindeer of his, they look like they’re up for a fight. Maybe the 2nd week of January? And we’ll get these ferns under control once and for all…
