As I walked downstairs this morning, I heard this:

“Daddy! This is pretty serious. Chintz has a toothbrush. And I don’t know if he was brushing his teeth Daddy, or if he was brushing his back like you do Daddy. Jewel had a wash glove on her head.

It was MY wash glove and I let her borrow it while I was sleeping…” (Wash glove???)

Then she saw me,

MOM. You might want to see this. LOOOK at what Chintz is DOING?!” (fits of giggles)

The only thing I could think of was, “Crap. Now I can’t use the dishwasher for 24 hours.” But I said, “Oh my goodness! What are they doing?”

“Chintz is taking a bath mommy, in the DISH CLEANER.”

Clearly the shower cap was completely lost on her. Who wears those anymore anyway? Not 4.5 year olds, that’s for sure.

Aside from the North Pole breakfast surprise, the Princess Cupcake must have thought this funny Elf on the Shelf was a winner. She talked and talked and talked about how clean those elves were all morning. While I began stacking dishes precariously in the sink…

Follow the Elf on the Shelf antics of Chintz and Jewel each day through Christmas, which can’t come soon enough…
