Yesterday our weather was extra weird. I awoke to a snow-covered street, which then melted as the rain came down. It snowed some more, rained a bit, cleared up to blue skies, and then started raining again. When the sun came out, I finally assured Em that yes, we could go in the backyard to find some fairies. By the time we got our shoes and jackets on, the rain started falling again.
We finally got a big enough sunshine break to actually go outside. Last week I began my collection of terrarium-themed miniatures to sprinkle in our backyard, which as I've mentioned here before, is comprised of mossy-stepped levels and foliage. I bought some mini toadstools, and popped a few on some moss outside. My plan was to hint that they were signs of fairies living in our backyard.
Mommy! Where are the fairies?
Hey, Em! Look at the mushrooms! I bet the fairies were here!
Oh, yeah, Mom.
Those sure are mushrooms.
Now let's go find FAIRIES!
Uh, sweetie. The fairies might not actually be here today. They may have just left those mushrooms behind for you.
Let's find FAIRIES, Mom!
Obviously I need to beef up my "fairy evidence" collection a little more, and soon! She's calling my bluff.
