24 Days of Lisa the Elf

Hello everyone! I am a Scout Elf from the North Pole and have decided to take over this post for the next 24 days. This year I finally got my family assignment from Santa. Upon arriving at my little girl’s home I got right to work setting up my display. I wanted her to know she needs to name me, find where I’ll be each day and give her a special treat since this sweet little girl has been sick since Thanksgiving.

December 1st: Now I had a typo. I know Christmas Eve is the 24th but in my rush I wrote the 25th. But I made sure to let her know to get a cookie from the kitchen as a special treat. My name was specially chosen and it’s Lisa.



December 2nd: Since the whole family is sick I thought I’d setup where I can watching over them as they rest and get better. 

December 3rd: When I got back from visiting Santa I decided I wanted a good view of school time. Homeschool is so cool and a lot fun! I wanted to join in the learning but Santa says I can’t talk or move when the family is awake.

Review: Hey Clay Bugs

We got an opportunity to check out Hey Clay Bugs from Timberdoodle’s 4th grade kit. This is an air clay so when left out it will harden allowing for some imaginative play after building. It comes with 16 containers of clay. All the colors you’ll need to make the bugs. With the bugs we’ve made so far you will need a pencil to make the mouths and eye holes. If you want step-by-step instructions for each bug you’ll need to download their app and then add the code they give you in the box to unlock the bugs.


What I like is the clay is soft and easy to use. Since my daughter is only 3 it was a learning curve to forming the shapes but she started to get a better handle of it and really enjoyed playing with it. The app is wonderful and with it she knew what needed to be done and did great job at making the little bugs. 

I did find some downsides. The clay sticks very well so if you want to take a piece off and reform it, it’s a bit difficult to do so best to not push pieces together to much …

Toddler Schedule

Do we have a schedule? Absolutely! If not, our life would be crazy. Since we homeschool I don’t wake up our daughter at a specific time. I just let her wake up on her own which is normally around 6-7am. Wish she’d sleep in later but she doesn’t. We get breakfast, dressed, brush teeth, take Togepi (the house chicken) out and just hangout until around 10am. I get out the school so for the day and make a snack to have while doing school.


After we finish school, I get house chores done for the day. Dishes, laundry, clean rooms and mopping. Our daughter loves to help clean for some reason she thinks it’s fun. I hope she keeps enjoying helping me and cleaning. While cleaning I take many breaks to play games and read with my Monkey. We sometimes take longer breaks to play outside. She loves riding her bike, blowing bubbles, watching Ice (my dog) catch bubbles and just running around. Sometimes we go to the beach she gets to feed the birds, catch fish and play in the sand.

Our Monkey

Every parent loves to talk about their kid. I’m no different so here’s a bit about my mini me. She’s is very much a tiny version of myself. At 4 months old we were told by her pediatrician that she would need to go to a cranial surgeon to see if she had craniosynostosis; which is the plates in the skill fusing together soon than they should. When your baby is 4 months old you don’t want to hear “she’d have her head cracked open.” I feel like the pediatrician could have worded it differently. After getting X-rays and seeing the surgeon for 5 months he decided that our daughter was just small and on her own growth chart. He told us she would just be like me short and small.


We realized early on that even though she was a late talker our monkey was very bright. By 2 she was only saying 33 words but knew 0-10, upper, lowercase letters and some letter sounds, dark and light colors as well as shapes. She even knew odd shapes like trapezoid and rhombus. Body parts, animals and their sounds s…
