Never let it be said my daughter isn’t imaginative. She’s working on her Christmas wish list already, and it was really hard keeping a straight face as she asked me how to spell various things.

Here’s what she wants so far:

  1. Goldfish with everything I need to take care of it.
  2. Harp
  3. Baby Alive Girl
  4. Cat
  5. Dog
  6. Lizard
  7. Dress
  8. Swing set
  9. 2 mice in a cage
  10. 2 bunnies
  11. Horse
  12. 200 pearls
  13. Candy
  14. Fairies

There’s a story behind that last one, and she means she wants real fairies, not dolls. At a Renaissance Faire back when my daughter was 4 a troll gave her an iridescent marble and told her it was a fairy egg, and to take good care of it so that it would hatch.

Obviously, it never has.

My daughter has decided that she needs some real fairies to come help her with it, so that maybe it will finally hatch. Since she can’t find any on her own, she wants them for Christmas.
