LOVE our Elf on the Shelf

main pic

I see many posts about the Elf on the Shelf. Some praise the little creature, other blast it ever being created. I simply made my own rules for it to work for us.

I let my son hug, hold, and put the elf in his special spot each time he finds him.

Why you ask. I reply with Why not?

The elf is all about fun and magic for us. It’s about a GOOD elf who only reports all the kind, sweet, wonderful things AJ does. It’s about an elf that only gets caught being silly and sweet, NEVER mischievous, rude, and doing anything mean spirited or dangerous.

It;s about adding the magic and joy of the Christmas season, not about me needed to threaten or bribe my son to behave.

It;s always sad saying goodbye to our Scooby Doo, but so much fun meeting him again after Thanksgiving.

  1. I’m not into the elf hate, though we do follow the ‘no touch’ rules (only because it complies with the book that we’ve got). Then again, our elf doesn’t get into the mischief we see around the web. I don’t feel like cleaning that up!

Would love to read your thoughts
