I swore I wouldn't even consider it. But alas, I have succumbed.
We now have a Peep on a Perch.
Much like the Elf on the Shelf, the purpose of the Peep on the Perch is to watch you do kind things to get ready for Easter. The rules about the Peep on the Perch aren't as strict as the elf rules so as soon as our Peep arrived, Megan took to holding him and bringing him everywhere.
Last night, when she should have been getting ready for bed, she was squishing new white model clay into a Peep on the Perch shape. Then attempting to paint the clay to resemble the Peep. The whole time, she was voicing over every action she was doing as if she was the star of a cooking show or a Youtuber.
When I finally got her to put the crafts away and get ready for bed, the Peep followed us upstairs with the rest of her crew of buddies. Megan decided Peep on the Perch should sit in the hole of her sparkly sequined donut pillow. Quite the perch.
March has now been full of Elves on the Shelves, leprechauns, and now the Peep on the Perch. A magical month indeed.
