Who's freaking idea was Elf on the Shelf? REALLY?

So, this morning we did the whole "WHAT'S THIS?" on the Elf.
This middle child of mine(Luke) is going to be the death of me:
Read the story -
Named the elf - Blitzen....yeah the reindeer.
Then came the hysterics:
His eyes don't move how can he see me when he's sitting right there????!!!
He doesn't have wings, Daaaaadddddyyyyyyyyy, heeeeeeeeeee caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan't flyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!! tears and more tears!!!
He can't talk to Santa, his mouth doesn't move!!!
I don't want him to talk to Santa!!!
So, I say to Alan as Luke leaves the room:
Screw you Blitzen........
You were NO HELP AT ALL!!
And Bethany..............Luke flipped his lid at the "NO TOUCH" rule too!!

Your post totally cracked me up! We have one too...I got roped into it last year from a friend who owned a boutique. THE biggest WASTE of money so far! Caroline could care less and I forget to move the stinkin' thing each day. She did though FREAK OUT when she found out she couldn't touch him!!!
