I guess that I am a crap parent. (jump in anytime kids, no seriously, feel free to jump in...... hello)
and the reason that I am a crap parent is that I am refusing to own an Elf On The Shelf.
If I wanted something to walk around all night messing shit up and generally being naughty then I wouldn't impose a bedtime routine on my crotchfruit would I?
I have to admit, I fail to see the point of an Elf on the shelf, is he just there to grass the kids up to Santa? Because if he is, my charming little
One thing that I have noticed is that SOME elfs (is it ELFS or ELVES?) cause more trouble than the children, last year I saw MANY (many, many, many, many) instagram pictures of elves in compromising poses with cuddly toys, some went walkabout all over the house, some just got drunk (Oh hang on, wrong instagram, that was NO elf)
Personally I would have been really annoyed if my mother would have brought home a badly behaved elf that fucked around all night and then tried to get ME in trouble with Santa if I didn't tidy my room.
And look at the little shit, does that look like something you can trust?
That is the face of someone who hasn't flushed and is now going to look your mother right in the eye and deny all knowledge of any crap. (literally)
So for me, there will be no Elf on The Shelf, no one is going to be reporting to santa apart from ME. (No, one is going to mess shit up, apart from ME) I have no room in my life for another stalker, thanks. (waves to all the stalkers)
BUT, I do know that a lot of you out there DO have an elf on the shelf, and I really do want to know what he does to add the fun to your christmas, what do your children think of your elf, does he misbehave?
Let me know
