When your child says to you, “Mom, when I grow up, I want to be a fairy and have magic fairy dust and live under a toadstool and wear a skirt made out of a tulip and drink Koolaid out of a thimble.”
Do you say:
- Don’t be silly. There’s no such thing as fairies.
- You’ll be a beautiful fairy and you can visit the clovers in my backyard any day.
I try to support my childrens’ imaginations and dreams. Even if Fairy University might not be my very first choice of schools.
