There are plenty of Elf on the Shelf pictures doing the rounds on Facebook and the like at the moment but here at The Dad Network we thought it was important to take a look at this phenomena from a dads perspective. So here is our dads guide to the Elf on the Shelf.
Some Elves are dads too.
Which means some of the mess might not be down to mischief.
So give an elf dad a break and maybe a baby wipe.
But some mess is probably avoidable.
You’re going to go through essentials a bit quicker than usual.
Might be time to stock up on a few things.
But if there’s one thing elves are great at its lists.
So maybe get your elf to help out with all the extra shopping.
But make sure you get a say whats on the shopping list
Elves are notoriously bad with calendars
We mean REALLY bad
But they seem to do very well with the Ladies
They know how to party.
So If they do have company dropping in unexpectedly, keep an eye on them.
Some of their friends can have rather extreme views
Which can sometimes lead to disagreements
Most elves are geared up for a quick getaway leaving you to pick up the pieces.
Oh, plus thats where all the milk is going
But it’s probably safer than letting them make their own juice.
