TPM and the Elf



I stopped in the Trinity Florist the other day because I LOVE THAT STORE. Anyway...  



While I was there, I finally managed to read the story about the Elf on the Shelf.



I shot all kinds of pictures for the Christmas Photo Contest and left with an Elf.



So I get in the car and I tell TPM (The Princess Mama) about the Elf on the Shelf story and tell her that this is HER elf and she needs to give it a name.


TPM and her Elf (C) Joni Staples



So for the past two days, I have been trying to get TPM to name her elf.  



Mother has had several little mini strokes and suffers from dementia. She has the personality of a sweet little 5 year old girl.  We do all of the things that a little girl and her mother would do together. So why not an elf?! ☺



When I asked her to name her elf, I could tell this might be hard for her.



So I offered a little help...



What is your favorite boy name?

I haven’t seen him in a while.

Ok. How about your dad. What was your daddy’s name.

I don’t remember.

What is Uncle Sidney Joe’s name? (Also her dad’s name).

You know.... I just don’t know!



YIKES!



The Elf at Trinity Florist (C) Joni StaplesSo we have an elf.... and he sits on the shelf... but he has no name!


Yet! I havn’t given up!!


Perhaps you could offer up your best elf names and I can read the list off to TPM and let her pick from your suggestions!!


Now THAT just might work!



NAME THIS ELF!

Hi there Joni, this is a sweet story. You and your momma are very lucky to have each other. As for the elf, how about Ears (since he is all ears), Stripes (his tights) or Whisper (sitting on her shoulder, she can tell him her thoughts and ideas).

Okay... we finally had to put all the names in a container and let her draw. She drew Andy. So it's Andy the Elf!!
