And so it begins

The Elf made his return today, sitting on the kitchen windowsill and quietly keeping an eye on our behavior, ready to report back to Santa. I can’t say I’m not fond of the little guy. I can’t say I don’t enjoy the race to find his new perch each morning, the way Lola Gray talks to him when she thinks I’m not listening, the building of holiday excitement. And it is sooooo nice to be able to say “The elf is watching. . .” and have everyone snap into shape. But I feel mildly guilty about it at the same time. Am I setting us up for a huge fall somewhere down the road?

  1. Mmm, I have an elf on my (childhood) stocking that looks just like that!
