Both of my girls absolutely still believe in fairies. How can they possibly not when the Tooth Fairy leaves the most gorgeous letter when she collects a tooth?
How can they not, when Tinkerbell tells us that every time someone says they don't believe in fairies, a fairy dies.
How can they not, when my hubby and I also believe in the magic.
The Tooth Fairy is doing a marvellous job. The wonder and astonishment in my daughters eyes when she came running into our bedroom shouting "MUMMY, DADDY, LOOK!!!" will live with me forever.
It's one of those moments you never want to forget.
It's one of those moments that makes parenting so worth while.
Now I'm planning to make fairy houses at the bottom of the garden as soon as the weather finally turns. After all, the fairies will appreciate any help they can get, since they are so busy collecting all the teeth.
I might even think about making a special bag for them to carry the teeth and those incredible heavy £1 coins in. I'm sure the girls will enjoy that activity one afternoon.
What are your special moments of parenthood that you never want to forget?
