Really though… 🙄 Can we all talk about how much of an added stress this elf crap is during the Holiday season? I know, I know. Bah Humbug, right? Low key… none of us want to admit it. But, it’s annoying.🤷🏻♀️
It’s been almost a year since my last post and I’m still here hiding the same damn elf 🙄.
To be fair, her name is Misty. She’s alright… Lazy as hell though 😒. Swear she doesn’t move til just before the kids get up 😉. I’ve given her the same pep talk year after year and she swears to be better, but man, has she failed! Maybe next year Misty will pull through. 2020 will be her year for sure. I can just feel it!
My eldest, Scotti. Woke up the other day and noticed Misty was sitting in one of the Christmas Wreaths. The first thing Scotti said when she saw her was “How Boring! She’s just sitting there!”
Ummm… what?! Of course she’s JUST sitting there. She’s a stuffed elf! (Nobody get your panties in a bunch, I didn’t actually say these words.) She then said… “Well, when is she gonna do something fun?”
Wait…WHAAAAAT?! Why does my elf have to do something fun? At what point did us mothers have to succumb to the crazy ways of The Elf on the Shelf?! Why are elves across America teaching OUR kids its ok to be bad?! These elves that supposedly fly back to the North Pole every night to report on our children’s behavior are wreaking havoc in our houses! Not only do we have to move the damn thing nightly (or morning, cause we all forget) but they are teaching our children it’s ok to be naughty 🤷🏻♀️. Each morning… (cause I’m a forgetter) I am faced with the crippling anxiety of where to hide this elf before my kids wake up.
I know you feel it too people. It’s a real thing.
Hang in there.
T minus 2 days and we have a full year off. We got this!
On another note… Is anyone else a giant Grinch this year?! Not sure what my deal. I’ve always LOOOOVED Christmas but what a buzz kill it’s been this year! My eldest doesn’t believe in Santa, my youngest is still pretty young (2), and… I’m over the little junk we buy our kids just to fill stockings and boxes, only to have things played with for a short time til they find their way to the donation box or the trash 🤷🏻♀️.
How many of you donate every year?! Or pick a family to Secret Santa?!
If you don’t… DO IT! I promise 100% it’s the best gift you could give yourself this holiday season.
