The Enchanted Forest

IMG_4221.JPG

As a mom I have discovered that Santa holds sway only between Thanksgiving and New Years.

The Tooth Fairy picks up lost teeth. She doesn’t care if the tooth resided in the mouth of a good kid or a bad kid. The reimbursement is the same according to my son. Apparently the kids at school have told him the going rate is $20. Rich Tooth Fairy.

I hate her.

The Great Pumpkin is a myth, I am told.

God loves us no matter what.

The Easter Bunny is good for a couple of weeks.

My scary face, apparently, is not all that scary.

So what is a mom to do when she needs to blackmail her kids into submission?

Invent a fairy!

My kids are obsessed with their birthdays. It is a topic of conversation year round: planning the party theme, changing the party theme, listing present wishes, discussing cake flavors and wardrobe, etc.

Sooooo… the Birthday Fairy was invented!

The Birthday Fairy brings your single birthday present from the Enchanted Forest. She sees all. She knows all.

And you can bet she does not give presents to bad little boys or girls.

I love, love, love the Birthday Fairy!

  1. Ha, love it!

    My little guy tells everyone that he gets gold coins for each tooth he loses. They’re Sacagawea dollar coins, and after he talked about buying out Target’s Transformers section with the first three coins he received, we told him he’d have to wait until he was old to spend them. Helps us out since there were high expectations after the $10 he received for the very first tooth!

  3. This is priceless…how I wish I had heard (or thought) of this when mine were little! Now if only the Enchanted Forest could leave Prince Charming (rich if course) it could save so many problems….๐Ÿ˜„ May bring a few more but the possibilities are endless for Fairy production .
    Oh I do love it.
