Well, I finally got an elf for Christopher & Emmy. All of Christopher’s friends have elves and it was time to join the masses. We now have Chippy (obviously named by Christopher, Emmy wanted to name him Dora), who was found in the Christmas tree this morning.
Here are Christopher’s thoughts on Chippy: “Mama, he is an elf on the SHELF. Not on the Christmas tree.” Turning to Chippy he said: “Can you stick to the shelf tomorrow?” Thank goodness my boy wants absolutely no creativity.
“Mama, if you didn’t buy the elf, then why does he have tags on his back?” Crap! I said the tags explained the rules we had just read about, no touching Chippy or being naughty.
He has spent the rest of the morning standing by the tree, just talking to Chippy. It’s pretty cute.
UPDATE: He just said: “Mama, can we get a girl elf so that they can fall in love?”
