Sweet Fairy Dreams

Natalie is obsessed with fairies and tonight decided she would find out once and for all whether fairies really do exist.  Using an old shoe box she fashioned a tiny abode that surely no fairy could resist.  She furnished it with a doll bed, complete with cotton ball pillow and a quilted toilet paper comforter.  She thought long and hard as to what kind of food a fairy would like best.  "It should be sweet and small.  Blueberries are perfect!" shared Natalie.  She originally included a glass bowl full of sudsy water -- a "shacoozy", but I convinced her that no fairy would be taking a dip tonight as I feared the water would freeze and shatter the bowl.  Before I tucked her in she asked me where fairies go to the bathroom.  I told her they probably just go outside like when you go camping.  She looked at me in disbelief and then said, "But, that's not natural.  Can you have Daddy make a toilet for my fairy box?"

"You mean like a latrine?" I asked.  

"No!  A REAL toilet.  He'll just need to attach some pipes so the water can go down.  Put that on his list, ok?" she insisted.

Poor Steve, no holiday rest for him.  Looks like he'll need to make a trip to Lowe's tomorrow. 

How could any fairy resist?  Berries, shiny coins and an animal print rug made from a piece of felt.
I wonder how long I'll need to eat berries and leave "leaf notes" behind?
If I'm lucky, at least for a couple years. 


  1. Where exactly is the Fairy Toilet section located? While you're at it, what about a bidet?

    1. Ha need to give her any more ideas. ;-)

  2. That is down right ADORABLE!!! How about a walk in closet while you're at it?? ;) ( freaking cute!)

  3. She's a nut. Walk in closet? Ha! Not before I get one, though. ;-)

  4. So stinkin' cute. The things we do for our kids, right? Keep us updated on the progress of the bathroom (all fairies need a towel warmer, by the way.)

  5. Adorable!! Looking forward to these things.
