Trick and Treat

Our daughter, was at her wits end, when it came to getting her daughter to do chores. Be it, putting back toys, after playing or finishing her homework….a battle of words was bound to ensue. She had tried all the tricks in the books, to no end.

One day, she bought / brought an elf home. She sat the elf in her daughter’s messy room, holding a card, which read, ‘you have been warned’. Returning from school, our granddaughter was told that an elf named Lulu, had found his way into the house. He had been sent by Santa Claus to check on her. If she behaved as need be, Santa would be magnanimous. Trick and treat it had to be. Sure enough, our daughter had the last laugh.
