The twins came running in the other day and promptly announced that Jingle….our elf on the shelf….
“Mom….umm….why does Jingle just sit there on the bookshelf?” they asked in unison.
I looked at them in confusion.
“Jingle doesn’t just sit in one place,” I said. “He moves around.”
“I mean yesterday he was up in one of the kitchen cabinets and today he was hiding behind the basket on the bookshelf.”
Please know that I said this proudly…..with an air of someone who was truly thankful that Jingle had not only remembered to show up….but that he had traveled around the house in only two short days.
Jingle had done his part.
End of discussion.
Until one of the twins continued with, “But he just sits there. That’s it. Other people’s elves are wearing superman capes and hanging from the ceiling and getting into the refrigerator walking on the butter and riding roller coasters and eating all the left-over Halloween candy.”
