It is is official we are all now obsessed with the tradition that is Elf on the shelf!
After a couple of almost misses moving the damn thing this week the tween (Bethany) mucked in too and became the Cecil sorter! … phew, as not even my Cecil panic alarm had registered. This is the blind panic you feel at 4am in the morning when you wake in a cold sweat thinking about the elf and that no one has moved it, this is followed by complete meltdown trying to remember where it was a week ago so as not to put it there again ..
Joshua is becoming more and more animated over the whole thing and this is in all fairness why we are running round like nutters. On seeing Santa a nursery he was very vocal about Cecil and that no one has touched him!
So here is this week with with Cecil .. the elf on the shelf .. or not as the case maybe!
Yes there have been some odd ones, like the pants – this one was accompanied with a letter from Santa about starting to use his big boy pants … the big boy pants were used to decorate the tree … and I can confirm that no successful potty sits have been made .. oh well.
Also after moving our wreath that I decorated inside from the wind for the last few days it became fair game for the elf!
My only stress as I type this in the early hours of Tuesday 17th is …. where shall I put him tonight??
