Elfcapades 2013: Day 3

Another day all to himself today, and Elfis managed to have some fun.  He didn’t make a mess, and didn’t get into trouble.  But he was pretty goofy.  Seems he decided to go slinky bungee bouncing (or whatever you’d call it):


He was suspended mid-air in front of the kids pictures.  Maybe he was lonely and wanted some company?  Or maybe it was just a coincidence because it was a good spot for him to dive off the upstairs landing…?

I wasn’t home today when the kids went downstairs and discovered him this morning.  So today when I picked up the boys and we were getting settled in the car, Cooper got excited and shouted “MOM! …  Elfis is on my boingy-boing.”  Huh?  My response, “What is a boingy-boing?”  He tried to tell me about it, but couldn’t remember the name of the slinky and I was pretty confused.  Needless to say, as soon as we walked in the door, the boys had to show me our elf ASAP.

During dinner tonight (well, after Bennett was done, but Cooper and I were still at the table), Bennett would hide around the corner from Elfis in the kitchen, and ask “Are you?”  (translated: Where are you?”) and run around the corner, see Elfis, and laugh.  And repeat.  Again and again.  He thought it was hilarious and so much fun.  Cooper and I got a good kick out of it, too.

Well, like I said – Elfis is starting to have fun, but not too crazy yet.  Let’s just hope it stays this way for a while.  After a long week of sick kids (croup & viral hives) and a busy Thanksgiving weekend, this mom isn’t ready for too much chaos.  Just a few more days of mellow normal afternoons would be nice.  Here’s to hoping…  🙂
