I received a text from my daughter’s Ninang (Godmother) yesterday that had me busting up, so I had to share.

She has two boys, ages 5 (Joseph) and 7 (Jordan).  Joseph already had confessed to his Elf on a Shelf that he was running in the house and asked he not tell Santa.  It was really cute, because he told his mom that when she asked about their conversation.  If he only knew.  lol

Joseph had received his naughty list warning from his Elf.  As any little brother would do, he sought advice from his older sibling.  He asked Jordan what would happen if his name gets on the naughty list.

Jordan responded he would get coal.  “What’s that?” Joseph inquired. Jordan tells him, “It’s like the charcoal dad uses in the BBQ”  Without skipping a beat, Joseph adds, “Ohhhh.  Well if I make it on the naughty list and get lots of coal, I’ll just give it to dad so he can BBQ!”

I couldn’t help but laugh.  Joseph has one of the brightest and most positive spins on life.  Not much phases this child.  It was a great way to look a potentially negative consequence.  Who needs a silver lining when you have a coal one?
