Our Elf on a Shelf (Buddy) is going to be the death of me.
Seriously - between trying to come up with creative places to put him every night, AND having to come up with SIX FRIGGING SHOW AND TELL ITEMS every week, I feel like I'M back in school.
Please tell me I'm not the only parent out there who is frantically searching Pinterest for ideas their Elf on a Shelf, and not only that, because we have three kiddos in one preschool class, and each week they study a different letter, which means that their show and tell item has to start with that letter, this means I have to come up with six items for them to take for the two days they're in school.
I am not even joking when I tell you that I google every single week "Items that start with the letter..." It's ridiculous. We already got in trouble from the teacher for sending them in themed clothing ("...their show and tell items have to be small enough to fit in the basket, so Scarlett's leopard print shirt won't work for the L show and tell...") Of course, leave it to this guy to try and pass their fashion off as show and tell. WHAT???? Fashion IS art, no?!
Besides, I have to get Scarlett interested in fashion somehow. Her laissez-faire attitude towards tulle skirts is astounding to me.
Of course, what I wore to school back in the day was always the biggest argument I had with my own mom, so I guess that's what I get, huh? Me: Scarlett, honey - PLEASE wear the tulle princess skirt, the leopard leggings and patent leather combat boots with a striped shirt and denim jacket. It would be SO. CUTE. Scarlett: NO. I want to wear Bubbies clothes. Me: Sigh.
