Damn Elf...

For those of you with kids, you know what an "elf on a shelf" is...for those of you without, be thankful.  The premise of the "elf on the shelf" is that he watches the kids during the day and then reports back to Santa at night.  But the damn elf cannot always make it to his shelf when he comes back from seeing Santa so every morning he is in a different spot in the house.  So every night, Santa's little helpers (aka me) have to put the elf in new places for the kids to discover.  The elf does not care if you forget or if you are hungover or if you remember at 3am and then fall back asleep, he must be moved.  I gotta tell you, it is wearing me out and we still have another week of it. 


I kind of want to wipe that smile right off Willie's face (oh that's the name of our elf).

Elves have always been problematic.

I have never heard of that tradition before - but it sounds exhausting.
