So it seems we have a lazy Elf on the Shelf here, named Snowflake. Son ask, "momma why doesn't he move around like the elf we have at school? Replied he doesn't like travel that much and doesn't like strange places, plus your little brother scares him, so he is trying to stay in a safe place. As Christmas is closer, he is moving more & more.
Big brother understands his little brother wants to get that elf. Does the elf watching make them behave any better, only for the oldest some. Little brother is just little brother and really don't care, he's going to do it anyways:)
