Just as I thought “Santa’s watching you!!” was losing its power, something much more powerful showed up at our house Tuesday night.
He arrives every December and each night after we have all gone to sleep he returns back to the North Pole and gives Santa a report on how everything was in our home that day. Was homework done? Did everybody get along? Did they brush their teeth?
And the next morning the kids wake up and go on a Tony-hunt. He finds a new spot to sit every day. Sometimes he has little notes and sometimes not.
One rule is that you cannot touch Tony. That was a big one last year for the kids – they were afraid he would lose his magic if you touched him. So the first thing Cuyler did when he saw our little buddy in the morning was run upstairs to his bedroom and make a sign.
It’s a good thing he’s so darn cute otherwise I might get annoyed with a little elf flitting all over my house, tattling on my kids every night.
