TX — A Texas mother who forgot she stashed her family’s Elf on a Shelf in the oven shared the saga of Elfis’ untimely demise.
Brittany Mease of Wylie said in a Facebook post that while she has never been a fan of the “creepy” Elf on a Shelf, she participates each year because it makes her young children happy.
Mease wrote that she had initially put Elfis on “bed rest” after he supposedly broke his leg tripping over her kids’ toys that were left out, but her children pointed out that the 14-day bed rest period had ended and Elfis still hadn’t moved.
“When they weren’t looking I grabbed him off the kitchen counter and quickly tossed him in the oven until I could move him later and not raise any suspicion,” she wrote.
Mease said she forgot about Elfis’ hiding place until she was heating up lunch for the kids on Monday.
“That’s when all hell broke loose and I broke my son’s heart,” Mease wrote.
