We haven't started decorating yet, but this week we did break out The Elf on the Shelf. Mostly because
I am completely losing my mind with all the timeouts I needed to find another way to motivate Pierce to listen.
The kit comes with a book and an elf. Once you name your elf, you can't touch him or he'll lose his magic. Our elf is named Tulley.
Every night, Tulley flies to the North Pole to visit Santa and report on the behaviors of little boys in our family.
When he comes back, he settles in a new place for the day.
We just never know where in the house Tulley will end up.
And one morning, Tulley was in the same place
because Mommy dropped the ball and forgot to move him as the result of a cold virus that prevented his trip to the North Pole that evening.
Thankfully, he seems to be feeling much better now.
The Elf on the Shelf has already proved to be so much fun. If you want one for your family, you can pick them up from places like Barnes and Noble or Amazon.
