So, I’d be lying if I said I’m never going to torture my kids in the name of fun. I am. I really look forward to having children one day and pulling out the Elf on the Shelf. For some reason, I think this will make parenting really fun. Maybe at the expense of my little angels but Mommy has to have fun too! Basically you put this “elf” on a shelf and then tell your kids it’s watching them and reporting back to Santa. I’ve heard tales of kids going to bed early, doing chores, and just acting sweet as can be. Isn’t there something that can be put on the shelf year round?
