We just started Elf on the Shelf this year. I thought it’d be a fun tradition and that the kids would enjoy it. Well, they kind of enjoy it. Maybe. I can’t really tell. I think it freaks them out more than anything. I mean, there is an elf that is making mischief in their house, so it makes sense that they’d be a little wary about it. They named him Hans Mario Snowball.
I wanted to share some life lessons I’ve learned from Hans.
1- The things you think are funny as an adult aren’t as funny when you’re a child and vice versa.
2 – Always… ALWAYS check the date on the milk before you put green food coloring in it.
3 – If you think your kid is going to love Elf on the Shelf, chances are, he won’t. He’ll tell you daily that he’s getting sick of that naughty elf and his shenanigans.
4 – YOU will probably enjoy Elf on the Shelf more than your child.You’ll spend all the time planning and laughing about how funny it’ll be and you littles will wake up and be mad that the elf has made yet another mess.
5 – If your elf makes a snow angel in flour, he’ll get gross and dirty and he’ll look smug about it. This will either make you laugh really hard in the morning or make you really mad, depending on the amount of coffee you’ve had and how early it is. Basically, coffee is the key to happiness. 😉
