Elf on the Shelf

4 years ago by in holiday

So here’s the dealio.

Apparently there is some talk on the interwebs that the whole naughty Elf on the Shelf  is wrong, and not good for the kidlets.
Basically, there are people who don’t understand why the elf has to be mischievous, as it has nothing to do with the storybook.

Let me just go ahead and say right now that we haven’t read the book.

Nor do I intend to.

The only reason that I bought the book/doll is because the idea of playing tricks on my kids for 25 days straight was far too tempting to pass by.

And I am having a BLAST doing it.

Our elf is most definitely a mischievous elf.

My kids have no idea that the Elf on the Shelf has any other purpose but to sneak into their underwear drawers and spend every waking minute getting into trouble and embarrassing them.

Bad mother? Possibly. But they are racing each morning to find Buddy the Elf, and we are laughing a whole freakin’ lot and having fun.

So, without further ado, here is what Buddy has gotten into so far.

Side note: Remember I have two teenagers, so some of our elf habits are a little PG rated. And potty humorish. Also, I did not include the photo of our Elf fishing in the potty ’cause having a picture of my toilet out on the internet is something I just mentally can’t do. Sorry. Oh, and Taylor would kill me if I posted the time the Elf removed all of our stockings and replaced them with her bras and underwear. Just trust me on that one, it was hilarious.

Here’s Buddy our elf, all captured with my phone:

[…] remember when I posted about the Elf on the Shelf? And how I threw out the whole idea of teaching my kids to behave and listen so Santa would come? […]

Hahaha! These are too funny! I’ve been thinking about getting an elf for my younger brother and sister and THIS has convinced me. Thanks for giving me a few ideas to get my elf started :)
