Kourtney Kardashian is using her clever parenting skills to get out of her “The Elf on the Shelf” duties.

The mother-of-three needed some R&R from her holiday chores and decided to blame it on the elves.

Kourtney’s elves recently delivered some bad news to her three children, Mason, Penelope and Reign.

On Saturday, December 18, the Poosh founder uploaded a photo of three elves in mason jars with a note attached.

The note read, “Dear Mason, Penelope and Reign, We are feeling a little under the weather from Elf 182 concert.”

“Elf 182” is a nod to her fiancé, Travis Barker’s band Blink 182.

The note continued, “Santa said we must quarantine until next week. Have a fun weekend. We are still watching. Love the elves.”

Funny enough, Kourtney posted photos of herself at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA. on Saturday.

From the photo dump, it appears Reign went to Disney with his mom. Travis’ son, Landon Asher Barker, also joined in on the holiday fun.
