This morning was a frenzy of activity…more than usual. After sleeping in, I ran around trying to get Ethan dressed and ready for preschool while also chasing the girls around begging/bribing them to get dressed instead of wearing their new pajamas (that they don’t want to take off) to drop Ethan off. So yes, there were dishes in the sink and breakfast dishes left on the table. But I wasn’t exactly expecting to find the mess that I came home to.
Broken ornaments and candy canes littered the floor. The tree skirt looked like it had been taken off and put back on in a hurry. Who would want to take off the tree’s skirt?
Now if you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you know I would normally blame messes like this on the kids. Problem is, the kids were with me! I started cleaning up, and then I found this:
Yep, that’s our Elf on the Shelf, Fred. Drinking and smoking and carrying on. At 9 o’clock in the morning.
All I have to say is that if he’s the one responsible for letting Santa know if my kids are being good or bad, things could go either way this year as far as toys are concerned.
Maybe I’ll send Fred over to hang out with Poppy’s Elf. Although from what Poppy says, she’s getting tired of dicking around with Dick.
