We live in a house of make believe and fairy-tales. We have a fairy, Trixibelle, who comes and goes as she pleases through a door in Kayla’s room. Kayla has told me she seen her once or twice and always leaves out treats, toys and food by her little door.
Every couple of weeks we all head off to the deep dark woods with the my second child Tinkerbell, the labrador, we go climbing and exploring in search of fairies and their homes. This weekend we found the leftovers of a fairy game, Kayla claims she has seen fairies play this game before, apparently it’s very similar to big people hopscotch.
We found a huge tree similar to the pixi-dust tree but there were no fairies to be seen, they were all working hard getting everything ready for winter. Kayla explained that Queen Elsa’s magic doesn’t work outside of Erindale so the fairies must work extra hard to help make it snow so Olaf can go to Disneyland.
We even found a swing made by the tinker fairies, Kayla chuffed with life that yet again on another deep deep dark forest walk we can still find lost things.
Her imagination brings us to another world. She believes in all things magical, we cannot cross a bridge without being really quiet as we might wake up the trolls. We have no chimney so we must give Santa a special golden key so he can drop off her presents. Elves spy through mirrors when double-checking the naughty and nice list and dolls come to life when you leave a room.
I love watching Kayla pretend play, her imagination is so creative, she lives in her own little fantasy world full of unicorns, leprechauns and make believe. Her imagination is wild, I love seeing it come to life. The night before she started school Trixibelle left her a card and a little bag of sweets, Kayla is still trying to figure out how our house fairy got the card through her tiny little door, the maths just doesn’t add up. She was so happy she remembered it was her first day of school and couldn’t wait to get home to knock on the door to tell her fairy all about it.
