I made my parents MISERABLE at Christmas with the idea of Santa!!!!!!!
Whew! Glad to get that out! That will be a story for another day but I will tell you that had "The Elf on the Shelf" been popular during my childhood, all bets would have been off and my dad would have made the elf so believable, I would still be having issues!
Back to our Cupcake. He made his appearance in grandiose fashion:
Peanut's face was priceless! She couldn't believe that Cupcake wrapped her door!!!! My mama was in town for the holiday and helped me with this endeavor. So parenting failure number 2375, I had planned on doing this, had the paper and the ribbon but no tape! The paper is actually duct tape which i accidentally left on the table next to Peanut's bed! Then the next day, Peanut fund it and told me that Cupcake used "this tape on my door and left it out!". FAIL. I had another parenting failure that day, number 2376 if you are keeping score, Peanut found the pictures of the elf on my camera. I was on my game and exclaimed "Cupcake took selfies on mommy's camera!". Peanut then proceeded to write Santa a detailed letter about Cupcake's antics including taking mommy's camera and taking selfies! The things we say to keep the magic alive!
