Welcome to day nine of Elf on the Shelf at our house.
This morning my children woke up when I did…. rarely happens.
Nick (6) says: Elf must have lost his magic. He did not move.
Mommy says in her head: Crap!
We soon headed out the door to meet up with my sister.
My husband is home today.
Before I leave I go into the bathroom and say…
So, I did not get to move Elf, in case you have not heard.
And, they noticed.
When we leave can you move him?
Oh, and can you make him fishing?
With the fish bowl on the table?
Make a pole.
And a chair.
Somehow. Using toys from the little kids’ room.
Love you, bye.
I believe his exact words to me were Um, right.
Boy did he deliver.
He even made a note.
I swear his middle name is MacGyver.
Oh, and a lovely Crystal & Co., reader shares her Elf on the Shelf ideas here.
