Firstly how much fun is having a little Elf come to stay with you? Lil G has LOVED it so much. I have enjoyed planning all the fun, mischievous and cheeky behaviour. I’m currently in the middle of making his exit plan for Christmas Eve night, and already have some of next year planned! Mr H says I am obsessed, my friends think I am crazy. I do these things for my boy as I know he enjoys it so much. I was right, he does and I am thrilled to be adding the Elf on the Shelf to Our Little Family Christmas traditions.
I will admit to being a little worried about days 20 and 21. Mr H took over for day 20 as I had a works Christmas Party and I was a little tipsy on the Saturday night from drinks with friends, when I thought wrapping the TV was a good idea. HUGE mistake. Lil G cried as he thought we couldn’t watch his morning TV with his milk. A parenting fail or drunken stupor right there. Eek. Although he did laugh about it a few hours later when telling his Uncle.
So, here are Days 16-23 with Buddy…
And of course we had a little fun in between nursery days, Christmas days out and toilet breaks. Every opportunity I have had hasn’t been missed…
And then there was just one more day left! Oh my goodness. Last week Lil G mentioned him going and seemed upset, he hasn’t mentioned it since. So, just two more scenarios to plan, the morning of Christmas Eve and 5pm as he leaves for Lapland. On the plus side, that also means that we are SO close to Christmas Day where all the magic unfolds … Excited beyond belief.
I will be popping up a little goodbye post to Buddy on Christmas Eve so I guess there is only one more thing to say to you… Have a very Merry Christmas.
