Well, the truth is, I never want to grow up. However I have a potential hobby lined up for when I retire. Who am I kidding, I can’t retire. But, in the far future, when I’m an empty nester I would love to work for the fairies, answering their mail. I had a sneak peak of what that future may look like.
So I’ve been keeping a close eye on the fairy door I installed at the park. It’s been getting lot’s of love. The Fairies
I INSANELY sent out a little note to some of my local friends stating that if their wee ones left notes for the fairies that maybe, just maybe, they might respond today. You know a one week only gig. Then every night we stole back to the park and found treasure.
Where do they come up with these questions?
And the darling pictures had me grinning from ear to ear.
Even my girls left messages. Here’s Princess who worked especially hard to make a note that would be easy for the fairies to read.
I the fairies responded to all the darling queries left behind the door (Hope I found all the notes). I think the wee people let the midnight oil burn, as they got so involved in communing with the imaginations of children.
Then bright and early this morning Prince Erik with his trusty screw-driving strong arm (as the door had a couple of pulled out screws), accompanied me back to the park. Once again he made the little door sturdy. Thanks Big Guy.
Then I set about making some fairy home improvements, because inside this big girl body is a little girls imagination. Prince Erik waited patiently while I played. I cannot tell you whether or not he rolled his eyes while I babbled on though. Super Big Thanks Sweetie.
What fairy home is complete without a moss carpet. And look at the sweet treasure some little hand painted and left as a gift. The rock is a perfect resting place for the weary fairy stopping in to take a break. Then I sprinkled some Pixie Dust and inserted the fairies responses.
You can definitely tell that the fairies visited.
Hope the kids like it. I swear I had more fun than they did. And poor Prince Erik had to hear me go on and on about how I want to do this when I retire.
Now, it’s back to earth and laundry for me.
