You’ve just collapsed your weary body onto the couch, snuggled yourself up in a warm blanket, and are casually reaching for the remote, your wine, or perhaps a good book, when you suddenly remember….YOU. FORGOT. TO. MOVE. THE. ELF. This has been happening more often to me lately, especially this past week. Sometimes I come up with something fun or mischievous for the kids to catch Bob (our elf) doing, while other times I’m lucky to have moved him to a new location without getting caught!
We started the Elf on the Shelf tradition last year, and I’m really glad we did. The boys love searching for him in the morning and it adds just a bit more magic and whimsy to their childhood; isn’t that what being a kid is all about?! It makes me smile to hear my boys whisper to one another when they get up, “come on! Let’s go find Bob!” When they finally do find him, that’s our cue to roll out of bed and feign surprise at Bob’s silly antics.
I just thought I’d post some of things we’ve done with our elf so far, in hopes of helping another exhausted mommy (or daddy) out!
