This is the first year we’ve done Elf on the Shelf. I admit that before we started, I thought all my friends who were getting way into it were a little nuts. It’s just a doll, I thought. But now I get it. We’ve been putting Elfy (that’s what the kids named their elf – original, right?) in all kinds of naughty scenarios.
My 5 year old asked me with a frown, “Why would Elfy want to take my money?!” Hmm, I guess I should have thought that one through. I just told him that Elfy was being funny, but my 5 year old still thinks Elfy is out to get his money.
This morning, the boys woke up to Elfy drawing faces on their picture hanging up in our dining room with, GASP, permanent marker. I didn’t have an Expo pen so I used a Sharpie. I’ve heard it’ll come out with rubbing alcohol on Pinterest – let’s hope that’s not a rumor, otherwise I’ll need to buy a new glass for this frame.
Anyone else starting Elf on the Shelf this year?DISCLAIMER: The content on the blog Don’t Mess with Mama is for educational and informational purposes only, and is not intended as medical advice.
