Boyfriend about lost his damn mind when he saw him perched up on our book shelf.
He was all, "WONKY WONK!! HE'S BACK! HE'S BACK!"
And from the bathroom, I hear Girlfriend scream, "WAIT FOR ME! I'M POOPING! WAIT FOR ME!"
Mind you, the girl has no clue what the Hell Boyfriend is talking about...
She was just over two last Christmas when Wonky Wonk came back, so she was basically just second hand excited... she really had no idea why she was happy.
Either way, she flew out of the bathroom and was instantly jumping up and down beside her brother screaming, "He's back! He's back!"
Her excitement, however, was short lived... when she realized exactly what Boyfriend was pointing at... she stopped jumping and dead panned him:
"That's a doll."
Her brother was all, "No it's not! He's magic!"
And she's like, "Nope. It's a doll. He's not real."
And with that... she was over it... she left the room, on to the next thing.
It was all I could do not to laugh at them.
She is so her cynical Father and he is so his over excited Mother.
Could be worse I guess!!
Update: Girlfriend is now excited about the Elf... she has no idea why, but she is.
