If you aren’t a parent, you may have wondered what the big deal is about your Facebook friend not moving her Elf on the Shelf last night.
She’s totally panicking because her daughter found Charlie in the exact same spot he was in the night before.
Basically, this is every parent’s worst nightmare this time of year.
It isn’t so much that the Elf itself didn’t get moved, it’s mostly because your child catches the faux pas and you have to essentially lie to your kid to explain why Ella is still sitting in the fruit bowl.
If you’re a mom or dad, you probably understand the feeling.
It’s not like you forgot on purpose, it was a total accident!
But still, you can’t tell your four-year-old that because it ruins the magic of it all.
You’ve probably also seen those creative friends of yours post those ingenious hiding spots. There are even calendars out now that can give you hints.
But have you ever seen a baby be the family’s Elf on the Shelf?
