Migs Blog: Elf On A Shelf?

December 14, 2016

When I was a kid we had those Elf On A Shelf things…only there was no cute name to them, there was no back story, my parents didn’t use them as a way to make sure I was good for Santa.  We just called them…this will come as a massive shock to all of you:  Christmas Decorations. 

They were packed in the Christmas decorations box in the garage, and pulled out in late November when we started putting up lights.

My parents didn’t tell me that this silly decoration/doll was “watching me” as a sorry attempt to teach me that I need to be good if I want presents. 

So when I came across this video, I had to laugh.  It’s a video of a 3 year old kid that completely calls out her mom for lying.  She is 3 years old…check it out:

Yup, this is the moment that the 3 year old realizes that she is smarter than her own mother!

I know that some think this is overplayed, but I still get a kick out of seeing some of those creative poses that some adults have put the Elf On A Shelf in.
