Elf on the Shelf

How many have started the Elf on the Shelf tradition? We got on board this year and it had it's pros and cons. My daughter was terrified of the elf at first and couldn't sleep the first few nights. Santa has written a few letters explaining certain concepts more in depth. He also wrote a letter saying the elf could stay a few more days, but has to be back by New Years. How have your children said goodbye? I know my daughter will be in tears so I want to make the transition as easy as possible. I was also thinking Santa could write a letter allowing the elf to come back on birthdays, holidays, and this year on the day the babies come home. Any thoughts on this?

My 4 year old was fine when he left on Christmas but just today she started crying wanting to know when he would be back. This was our first year of having it also. I just told her that he had to go and get started helping Santa make the toys for next year. She laughed and started talking about all the places that he had landed. Good Luck with it.
