Girls....where was elfiebell snowflake this morning?
Where is elfiebell today?
Bell bell where are you?*
Where has elfiebell been?
Come out come out wherever you are!**
Where. Is she?
Zip line today?
What did bell do last night?
Where is she? The girls are asking.****This is when I started to become concerned that my mom thought it was possible the elf was actually the one sending my mom photograph evidence of her location.
**This is the day that I thought maybe she was starting to lose her mind.
***This is the day I realized my mom and her co-workers had bypassed their sacred traditions of starting their workday with doughnuts, coffee, and cakes to instead share stories of their grandchildren's elves. Or perhaps discussing elves while enjoying doughnuts, coffee, and cakes? I'll have to find out.
Last night I sent her a preview of what the girls would wake up to this morning.
My mom's reply: Peekaboo!
To which I then replied, "I'm becoming concerned that even you believe this elf is real".
I'm also starting to wonder who will be more devastated by Elfiebell Snowflake's absence - my daughters or their grandmother.
