our night time fairy ☆

Molly for the past two weeks has been waking during the night and arriving into our bed. She seems to be having a bit of separation anxiety and comes looking for her mama! At first it was sweet, but a few nights of broken sleep and some dark circles later the novelty has well worn off!

Regular readers will know that we have a fairy living in our house since last October, a night time fairy called Willow, that minds Molly while she’s sleeping, keeping the blankie up to her chin so she stays cozy all night long…SO yesterday (after using half a tub of eye cream!) I told Molly that poor fairy Willow couldn’t find her the previous night and thought Molly didn’t need her anymore?! …and whata-ya-know we didn’t have any visitor lastnight, and the first words out of Molly this morning were ‘is Willow still here?’. There was of course a trail of pixie dust outside Willow’s door and a little note on the doorstep for Molly to reinforce ‘the magic’.
Problem sorted, thanks Willow ★:*¨¨*:☆~

‘you know the place between sleep and awake,
that place where you still remember dreaming,
that’s where I’ll be waiting, tinkerbell’

the fairies have moved in
we love fairies

Have you ever wondered how nature gets its glow?
Who gives it light and color as the seasons come and go?
Who helps all creatures, great and small to walk, to swim, to fly?
Who crafts such tiny details? You might see them if you try
For it’s all the work of fairies but they stay well out of sight
For the first time that a baby laughs, a fairy’s life takes flight
Few folk have seen a Fairy,
But I found this one for you.
If you believe with all your might
She’ll make your dreams come true.
