The funny thing about parenting is…that seeing is not always believing.
I have been waiting until we moved house to move Paige’s fairy in. And although we moved in on Sunday, we had to make sure that Pix’s home was ready for her. We had to make the space special and Paige loved helping me decorate.
Pix made an appearance on Monday night, whilst Paige was fast asleep. She left little glitter footprints all over her room and on her pillow! Paige was so excited. As adults, we sometimes forget that our imaginations are amazing. We don’t need to see everything to believe it and childhood is proof of that. Paige loves the idea of having her fairy share her bedroom with her. She gets so excited to think that this little fairy has been checking in on her when she’s asleep and looking after her. The Fairy Door has made our move that bit easier and allowed Paige to be involved in decorating her room. She has giggled, and looked on in awe with tired eyes as she saw all the glitter. It’s amazing and such a simple idea! Even though Paige is only 2, this little job that we’ve undertaken together has gotten her so excited and she really does understand it.
As parents, it’s our job to encourage our children to let their imaginations run wild and we should enable them to do so.
Pix the fairy will be getting up to plenty of mischief to help us settle in to the new home, so be sure to keep checking in 🙂
Let their imaginations run wild!
