BB in the Bucket, Advent fun, play

Sometimes I just do stuff, you guys.

True story.

It happens.

I don’t always share the stuff I do.

My kids get most of me, you know?

Oh sure! I share a lot of stuff online – here, there, and everywhere – but I don’t share everything.

I think this is worth sharing for two reasons.

1) It’s easily adaptable and anyone can do it.

2) It’s my way of celebrating what I love, without dissing something I dislike.

Ready?

Okay!

Ta daa!

BB in the Bucket

It’s December 4th and look who is here!

It’s BB! But wait. What’s this I hear?

She’s wearing a hat with a sparkly ball

There’s a sparkly scarf too, but that is not all!

BB’s so festive, she’s ready to play

So you’ll have to find her everyday.

There’s only one rule, you must not forget it

Don’t skip it or shun it or you might regret it!

When you spot BB you give her a HUG

You squeeze her and keep her as snug as a bug in a rug.

Yes, Christmastime is the Season of Hope

It’s certainly no time to pout and to mope.

Imagine, you finding such a cute thing

and having to wait and just look at the bling.

Yeesh! That would be awful and terribly bad.

I just can’t believe in something so sad.

So people can keep their elf on the shelf

I’d rather have BB, her wonderful self.

Wouldn't you?, BB, BB in the Bucket, Advent,

Wouldn’t you? 

So, there you have it!

Rumour has it that BB will have a sparkly red hat with a white glittery pompom this year.

No one knows for sure though.

We’ll just have to wait and see because as I said these things just happen.

How do you celebrate Advent?

Do you have a special ritual?

Do your kids enjoy the countdown to Christmas?

How do you spend the days leading up to the Holidays?

 

*I cleared this with the Things before posting it here. It’s late in the game, now, but this is something you could do at any time of year just for fun. Make stuff up, guys! It’s rad!

    • Thank you! We needed a something because lots (and lots and lots!) of people have elves and friends were talking a lot about their elves and all the elfy things.

      I respect any parent who has that kind of commitment. It’s awesome!

      It isn’t my style though. The whole premise bothers me (for me and mine!) so I thought of a new fun thing… no pressure for the first – note it was the 4th last year – and no pressure to behave and not touch a cute little magical visitor for fear of killing the magic. Oy! That is an awful lot of pressure, sin’t it?

      Merry December, my friend! Here’s hoping it is filled with all the good things.

    • The Mensch on a Bench has been around for a couple of years now! Hilarious! 😀

      I was hoping my Ottawa BFF’s Beau (who is actually her husband, but why mess with the fun?) would get one last year, but I haven’t had an update. I actually sent them a photo from Moncton when I saw him on his bench at Chapters.

      BB gets extra hugs and gets to wear a hat and a scarf! It’s very exciting! Thank you! Merry Christmas to you too!
