I Want to Make Out With This Elf

by Trisha-and-Amy on December 8, 2010

Ok, maybe I was the last to find out about the Elf on a Shelf. But this genius book/Elf has made this Christmas so much more magical for my 6 and 8 year-olds. I hear them whispering their wishes to him…running to ‘find’ him each morning…wondering if he’ll report back to Santa that they ate all of their spinach. This is a tradition I’m excited to keep, at least until they don’t let me.
What other traditions do you guys have during the holidays??

I am looking for an Elf on a Shelf!
Something I discovered last year. This website will send your child a video from Santa himself. It is so magical! You can even download a photo of your child so when Santa opens his book, their picture will be in it. Check it out at http://www.portablenorthpole.tv
You can even send one to adults–put your hubby on the naughty list for not picking up his laundry off of the floor!

I just wanted to let you guys know that I just started reading, “I was a Really Good Mom Before I Had Kids” and I LOVE it! This is really what I’ve needed.

A funny little thing happened while I was reading your book. I was reading about how we need to stop feeling guilty about taking time for ourselves and that there are so many moms who don’t do that because they feel guilty. The funny this is, I started to feel GUILTY because I DO take some time out of the day for myself!!!!!!! How messed up is that? I felt bad because I wasn’t having those same thoughts as the other moms because I was taking time out each day for myself. So… I felt guilty that I wasn’t feeling guilty about not taking time for myself. LOL! That just proves to me that there will always be guilt when you’re a mom :)
