It's that time of year again - when the world fractures into two discreetly different kind of people. Those who enjoy the elf on the shelf ruse in all of its different incarnations and those who despise this little voyeur.
Shocker, I am cleanly in the former category. Up until now I have enjoyed watching my friends share their elf adventures without even a hint of irony. Now I get to join in on the fun. And I scratch my head to wonder how anyone could resist it? (Just like Im sure the anti-elf camp can't possibly figure out the allure.)
I realize its not at all cool and some may roll their eyes and warn me off. While Aggie absolutely loves to find the elf in a new spot each morning, I enjoy her delight even more. I'll happily trade my hipness for that any day. I understand the holidays are stressful and its perfectly justifiable to skip it but it's the highlight of my mornings so I'm on team elf all the way!
We are doing it pretty simple for now - just moving elf spot to spot each night (I see no need to put our elf in hilarious positions just yet but I will certainly do it in the future as Aggie gets older). I'm also having elf stowaway in my purse so I can snap her photo all over town at it's most magical time of year. This way Aggie can also "find" her elf on my phone via the camera roll. So if you want to watch as our elf takes on New York City, follow along on instagram and facebook.
So spill it! Are you on team Elf Not On a Shelf or Elf Take a Long Walk Off a Short Pier?
