Ode to Faeries

on February 28 | in Our Family | by | with 14 Comments

The woods are full of faeries!

The trees are all alive

The river overflows with them, See how they dip and dive

What funny little fellows!

What dainty little dears!

They dance and leap, and prance and peep

And utter faery cheers!*

I don’t remember when I became a citizen of the world of budgets, laundry and meal plans, but over the weekend Katie reminded me that my visa to the world of faeries is still valid. I think I’d like to visit more often. While I can’t ditch dinner for the park everyday, it only takes a few minutes to create beauty with bubbles on the patio or chalk drawings in the driveway. How will you make magic with your little one today?

  1. thanks for beginning my week with a smile!

  2. @Melissa I’m so glad! You are going to have so much fun playing dress up with your daughter. I could not have imagine what a twirl and a smile from Katie would do to me.

  3. I was thinking a little about that as I looked at the pics… I simultaneously so excited and can’t really wrap my head around it!

  4. Ok, I must know where you found those cherry blossoms! Katie is UH-dorable!

    My favorite comment came after we showed Katie the fairy outfit and asked her to wear it like the faeries in Mommy’s book. Katie replied, “But I can’t fly!” Because, obviously, our photos wouldn’t be “just like” the book unless she flew.

  6. @Melissa Have you seen those socks that look like teeny-tiny Mary Janes? You must get her some of those :)

    Mae – The cherry blossoms and gardenia’s are in full bloom at the Fort Worth Arboreteum!

    Katie has to be the most adorable little girl I’ve ever seen! I love seeing pictures of her in your blog posts. I miss getting to see her on Sunday mornings!

  8. Ann MacInnis Smith via FB says:

    Maybe not 15 but she sure will when she is 27

  9. Monica Johnston Connell via FB says:

    so cute. UGH-I’m so jealous of your nice weather. I’m used to (& from) southern CA … Wisconsin snow is killin me!

  10. Jesse M says:

    Adorable!! Loved this post, and need to get a fairy outfit for my daughter immediately!!!!

  11. We Unschool and I am guessing that has influenced my youngest to still be playing dress up (whenever she goes anywhere she wears the most unique, fun outfits that make people smile) at the ripe old age of almost 19 :)

  12. Susan says:

    Katie is such a doll! I just want to scoop her up and smother her in kisses!

    My daughter will soon be 17 and I get such a lump in my throat when I remember back on the days when she was this age. It is such a sweet, precious, curious and pure time in their lives. And it goes so quickly. One day you are dropping them off to kindergarten and the next thing you know they are touring campus colleges!!

    Try, try, try to make time for the magic every day! Even if only for a few minutes while dinner is in the oven. Sure, there were times, I was so tired and didn’t want to do it. But now when my daughter recalls those special moments we shared together, it helps heal the sadness of knowing that soon, I will be going through “empty nest syndrome.” I will miss her terribly when she leaves next year for college, but knowing she carries a heart full of special “Mommy Memories” fills me with such joy that I’m sure it will over-shadow the emptiness.

  13. I never outgrew the dress up phase. For me it’s just a way of life. ;)

  14. Did you notice how Katie’s 1st photo interacts with your profile photo at the top right? Two different versions of the same thing, one adult, one child, both beautiful & happy & out in the world.
