Things I'm sad about:
That Elf on the Shelf was not yet invented when I was a child.
Seriously, I want one so bad! Unfortunately, I don't have any kids to play along. I thought about doing it in my classroom, but when the kids have one at home, then they have one in their regular classroom, having one in the art room would be a little too much. There is even one at the after school daycare. It takes away from the magic.
I have often considered buying one for just Kelly and I because I want one so bad, but I thought it was a little juvenile, until I found this article...
These ideas would make it perfectly acceptable for Kelly and I to have an Elf on the Shelf seeing as they are not at all appropriate for children's eyes!
I will probably never eat one of those cookies again!
