Did you know there is a Wish Fairy? I didn't either, but last night Anna was secretly writing a letter that she wouldn't show me, or it wouldn't come true. Then she put the letter in a tiny box, and asked me for help coming up with an offering to the Wish Fairy. We decided on a purple jelly bean, because everybody knows that purple is the favorite color of fairies everywhere. Then she put it on the table next to the bed and went to sleep.

Needless to say, she was JUST A LITTLE BIT EXCITED that the Wish Fairy actually came last night.

If only I'd known there was a Wish Fairy when I was little.

Hey, I'm happy to know NOW that there's a wish fairy. Have I got a list...

So you're getting her a puppy this summer?

jpogue said...

Why isn't Heather's blog linked you yours anymore?

kate said...

Hell yes we're getting a puppy. I put in the same request to the Wish Fairy. He said he needs to fix the fence first though. So it won't be until summer.

Now we just need to decide between a Corgi/Golden Retriever/Basset Hound/Australian Shepard/Bernese Mountain Dog.

I dunno why Heather isn't linked to me. Maybe she doesn't like me anymore.

Kate, not only did you not have a Wish Fairy, your Tooth Fairy was stupid, forgetful and didn't know her job description. She kept forgetting to come take your tooth and leave money. Crazy dumb blond !!!!!!!!!!!!!

kate said...

Let's see. We have roughly 32 teeth. At $1.00 per tooth, PLUS INFLATION AND INTEREST, you, Mrs. Tooth Fairy, owe me $2,648.82.

Plus tax.

Dee said...

You , my dear, are wrong on 3 counts. ! At the time , as a child, you did not have 32 teeth,
(2) you didn't get $1, it may have been a quarter or two, and (3), the Statute of Limitations has expired on Tooth Fairy debts . ! So there, smarty, you're not getting a penny outa me.

Linda, aka "Lala" said...

Yup, statute of limitations is way out on that one.

(Good one, Mom! I didn't even know there WAS a statute of limitations on Tooth Fairy depts! That info coulda saved me a bunch last year when Andrea pulled that one on me.)

David said...

Sorry, Anna had a typo. The wish ferry has already left....

kate said...

Mom, don't make me sic my Jewish accountant on you.

David, I know you're new to this whole 7 year old thing, but I'm afraid the Wish Ferry is running on schedule and will dock repeatedly until it's needs are met. ;)

kate said...

that sounded kinda naughty, didn't it?

*snort!*

Kate, help David. He has changed it from "Fairy" to "Ferry" . Just like a man to change something sweet to a mode of transportation. geeeeeze
