MILF on a Shelf

I know the Elf on the Shelf trend is something that lots of families do. I even know lots of folks who love the Elf on the Shelf at Christmastime and it works great for many families. It is unbelievable popular and makes sense for many families.  In fact, we just saw an episode of The League where the little girl named her elf “Kegel” because she overheard grownups talking about kegel exercises (hilarious).

I however, am not the biggest fan. For one thing- the elf is creepy looking and is just sitting there– watching. I remember a woman made me an old fashioned clown doll when I was a kid. I was scared to death of that thing. It sat on a chair in my room because I was scared to move it. Seriously, I thought it would know if I moved it. I imagine this “Elf” would do the same to many kids. Around here, things will be just like they were when we were kids. We didn’t have an elf watching us. What worked when we were kids was the line from the Christmas Jingle “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”: he knows if you’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake! That was it. So guess what? That is what our kids will grow up thinking too.

So…

You all remember the definition of “MILF” from American Pie, right? If not, click here. Jennifer Coolidge played the MILF “Stifler’s Mom” in that film, and she is ultra funny so she is the only thing that could make this OK to me. So, in lieu of the Elf on the Shelf- they should make a MILF on the Shelf.

I’d totally buy it!
