About Me

I am a captive caretaker of three small terrorists and an exotic petting zoo. I try regularly to sneak college courses so one day I can leave this place.

It's the fairies!!

Violet is having a small melt down this morning. The small people have to clean their room before they go outside. If they do not, then they get interupted mid-play to finish. I know it's very coercive...but it's just so effective. So Violet gets pulled in to finish her room and whines because she just wants to play...duhhhh. So I tell her, in my exasperated all most yelling voice ' if you keep your room clean then you can play'. And then she falls apart: 'Its not my fault, it's the fairies in my room!' So I am asking has their ever been an occurence of fairy flittering that has caused rooms to appear disorganized? And how do you convince a child who believes in Santa (despite my best intentions), the tooth fairy and leprechauns that there isn't any other small being messing up her room...it's her.

  1. Well, my children tend to believe that there is a fairy that goes behind them to clean up messes. That fairy happens to be me. Maybe it is the fairies leaving the messes and not our children? Could it be that maybe they have better drugs than we do???
