Last night Kalem's front tooth finally fell out, the 3rd lost tooth to date. It was so cute, he took his little tooth into the bathroom before bed and brushed it with his toothbrush so that it was all shiny for the tooth fairy. He then wrapped it in tissue and placed it carefully under his bed. The tooth fairy who was actually feeling a bit under the weather last night almost forgot to replace the tooth with a shiny coin.....Luckily she remembered just in time! A couple of weeks ago Kalem came home from school and said that half the kids in his class believed in the tooth fairy and half thought that it was their parents. Is the tooth fairy real he asked?????? I answered straight away, that of course the tooth fairy was real......... Now though I keep thinking, did I do the right thing? He is 7 1/2, is this the age that children stop believing in magic? I love nothing more than watching my children's imagination at work and it saddens me to think that soon he will not want to know about the wondrous, enchanting world of make believe. I want him to always believe in dragons, fairies, father Christmas and the Easter bunny, but I know that he wont, so I guess that I will have to come up with new ways to spark his amazing imagination.......
Oh and whilst on the subject of fairies my own little fairy Talia announced yesterday that she has changed her name to Buttercup. This is apparently more fairy like! She would not answer to Talia and had a great time telling everyone she saw her new name, even a random lady at the fruit and veg shop. I guess that it will be a while before I have to start worrying about her belief in magic.
Your fairy is called Tangle Saturnwand
She is a trouble maker.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen when the seer holds a four-leafed clover.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals. She has delicate pale pink wings like a cicada.
