Fairies can be all shapes and sizes

I find myself listening to this conversation between my children

MasterM
Do you have any fairy wings?
MissM
As it happens...I do!
Do you want the extra large or the extra shiny?
MasterM
I think I should go for the extra shiny.
MissM
Do you want a tiara as well?
MasterM
No, I think that will fall off too quickly.
MissM
What about a wand?
MasterM
Oh yes!! A wand would be really good.
MissM
I have got one that lights up when you twist the bottom...
but it is quite precious...
MasterM
Oh - don't worry - it might get lost.
MissM
So you are going as a fairy.
MasterM
I did think of going as Shrek
but I just don't fancy painting myself green.
MissM
I will go and get the wings so that you can try them on.

Later I said to MissM "You probably won't see those wings again" and she said "It doesn't matter - it was worth it just to see him dressed up as a fairy."
That's my girl!

Re: your comments between you and your daughter. That would be sooo worth it. Your son reminds me of my son who is seventeen. Doesn't like to put a lot of effort into things and is very charming. Your son sounds charming.
