Yeah the title says it all but let me to get that.
I wrote last night’s awesome post on being lazy and went to bed. I didn’t move Elf. Brian didn’t move Elf on the Shelf, Kingston. My alarm went off at 5:30am in an attempt to get myself moving a bit better in the morning. What is the first thing I clearly think about? The darn elf!! I didn’t move the Elf on the Shelf last night. Sure enough he was still in my empty flower vase as I rushed out in the living room trying not to slip on the hardwood in my socks. I look around and see the hanging fruit basket. So I shove him in the apples on the bottom. Cute huh?
The kids found him at breakfast time. Whew. I did it.
At dinner tonight, they start talking about Kingston and I look up at dear our Elf on the Shelf and I notice the orange above him is now a rotten orange. SERIOUSLY?! The kids don’t notice. Brian does. He gets a “You didn’t move the darn Elf on the Shelf so hush it” look!
After the kids went to bed I went to toss out the rotten oranges and found that apples were going bad too. Great a whole fruit basket of rotten fruit. I will let you know that the fruit is all replaced now … all newly bought clementines. yum!
My sister asked me why I didn’t have the #Ihatemysister hashtag yet. I might be coming sis. No creative Elf on the Shelf pictures here. Only your sister can mange to put her kids’ elf in rotten fruit.
If you want to enjoy my misery of Elf on the Shelf season here is a collage for you to pin! Yeah, go ahead and pin it or repin this!
Once again the Elf on the Shelf is showing off my parenting fail skills. How is the The Elf on the Shelf going at your house? Please tell me I am not the only non-creative elf hider out there! Follow along with Kingston this year with the Kingston 2013 tag here!
