Cecil and Elf On The Shelf has become a little like an obsession, from the moment Joshua goes to bed the discussions start on where he will go next … although I have on a couple of times forgotten even after the discussion, however my bacon was saved by Ollie diverting Joshua to the Kitchen for “a bit more looking” … phew!
Last week I was feeling anxious that in fact I had made a rod for my own back with this Tradition and that Joshua was far too small to get it. However I would have been very wrong. Joshua is loving it, he tells Beth (age 12) she must not go near him or his “magic will be gone”
We also to took receipt this week of our lovely Elf Door from The Magic Door Store and we love it! It miraculously has remained in the same place since it was installed with no little fingers even attempting to play!
So far Joshua has loved every location this week but he had 2 favourites; one in his toy plane and on the zip slide with a super man cape …. you may wonder how I know they were is favourites … Firstly he never shut up about them and then told EVERYONE he saw about it … Secondly there is that mad toddler jumping that only a toddler can do … you know the one, where their feet don’t actually leave the floor but everything else is like a jump .. oh and they are super proud of themselves!
So with renewed vigour and buckets full of enthusiasm for another week of Elf On The Shelf this week it may get a little bit more creative … well maybe!
