If you happen to follow me on Instagram, you’ll notice that every morning I post a photograph or video of where I have hidden our Elf, Baci, with a musical theme. If you happen to follow my husband Eric, you will notice that he does that same thing, with a different photo and song choice. Every day we come up with the idea of where the Elf is going to go and then we fight over what song we’re going to use and who has a better idea. He won the My Little Pony round with “Pony” by Ginuwine, but I won the Mission Impossible round. Every day we are trying to come up with something more ridiculous and extravagant. Every day we try to see who gets better reactions. THIS IS WHO WE HAVE BECOME. WE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF OURSELVES.
Charlotte likes to look at Baci once in the morning and then forgets about it. Eric and I can’t forget about it. How can we ever stop thinking about Baci when we still have two weeks of ideas we need to come up with? Remember two years ago when all I did was talk shit about the elf? WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME?
Eric goes back to work next week though, so the Elf is going to become my sole responsibility again and therefore I will always win with clever ideas. Sorry Eric.
