Around midnight I prowl the house, peeking in on sleeping children, plotting my next prank. Other elves spend December giving children little gifts and relaying messages from Santa. I do a little of that too. It’s important to keep my kids in line, to remind them to behave as the big man finalizes his lists. But my specialty, and my true joy, is wreaking a little mayhem.
Where’s the fun in being good all the time?
One morning, you may come down and find that I made a teetering five foot stack of books. The next day, you’ll find me swinging from the chandelier, frozen after a night of wild ruckus with the kids’ favorite stuffed animals. And some days, you’ll have to search long and hard before finding me hidden behind the water cooler. That’s the beauty of having me around. You’ll never know what you’ll wake up to.
You should have seen Bella’s face this morning when she woke up to a room filled with toilet paper. I almost laughed out loud.
