A mom landed herself on the naughty list after putting her Elf on the Shelf in the oven.
Brittany Mease, a mom of two, isn’t a fan of her Elf on the Shelf, but she never intended on sending the little guy into temperatures far too hot for someone used to the frigid temperatures of the North Pole.
On Monday, Mease took to Facebook to tell her tale, claiming that the “Mom of the year award goes to yours truly.”
Hoping to escape the pain of the Elf on the shelf for a few days, Elfis arrived to her house with a broken leg after tripping on toys that her kids had left out. He needed 14 days of resting before he could start his forays of appearing in a new place each day, but after her kids pointed out that it had been more than 14 days since Elfis had moved, a panicked Mease grabbed him while her kids weren’t looking and tossed him into the oven.
“I preheated the oven and started cleaning the kitchen. About 4 minutes later I started to smell something REALLY funky and that’s when all hell broke loose and I broke my son’s heart,” Mease wrote on Facebook. “In mid conversation with Brittany I yelled “F–!!! THE ELF! THE F–ING ELF IS IN THE OVEN’”
Despite getting Elfis out as quickly as possible, Santa’s little helper still suffered some major injuries, including melted feet, shriveled limbs, and a head that popped off due to the heat.
But Santa worked his Christmas magic and took Elfis to the North Pole to recover. After a short stay with his friends, Elfis returned to the Mease family, ready to continue watching over Mease’s kids and reporting back to Santa.
