The Tooth Fairy Does NOT Work on Sundays

Yesterday Isabel finally lost her yellowing top front snaggle tooth. Why is it so difficult for me to remember to be the tooth fairy? This morning our lame excuse was that the tooth fairy doesn't work on Sundays. Luke helped out by adding, "Yeah, like the mailman" (which by the way he just found out about. Yesterday he tried to get the mail.) Last tooth that I forgot to be the fairy for we were staying in a hotel so the excuse was that the Tooth Fairy couldn't find her. I CAN'T forget again tonight.

Fairy Party

DSC07212 Isabel will turn six on Sunday so this afternoon she had a Fairy Party with her friends. Once Isabel's three friends arrived, we first had to put fairy dust (glitter make up powder) on our cheeks. Before learning about fairies, I sprayed fairy spray (lavender air freshener) in the room. To teach them that fairies are not only pretty but kind, I read them the story, A Fairy Went a-Marketing by Rose Fyleman. I then read the poem A Fairy in a Jar by Margery Stockseth and they each drew a fairy in a jar. Here is Isabel's.


Since fairies like to play games the girls colored butterflies and played pin the butterfly to the flower. We then ate fairy cakes (pink cupcakes). Fairies love to dance, so each girl got a magic dancing wand and pranced around the backyard to music.
