It appears at nearly 3 Busy* has entered the Age of Nylon. Her love of all fabrics flamable seems to have come hand in hand with her love of fairies, princesses and all things tulle. She was given a whole load of fairy skirts and tulle, nylon, taffeta dresses, wings and wands and skirts a while ago. They have laid dormant in the dress up box until now. The fairy gene has kicked in. Into overdrive. This includes anything with fairies on it (like the friggin yoghurt placed at her eye level in most supermarkets thankyou very much) The most hideously hot and uncomfortable of fabrcis - nylon- closely followed by polyester- are, in her eyes, the greatest. The more gaudy, garish and sequened the better. No natural fibres allowed. Why don't "they" make hemp fairy outfits??
This has all worked in perfectly really as I have marvelled at this Age of Nylon in my friends' daughters and noticed that it did kick in around age 3. I have some fairy things things planned for her birthday and she will be getting some wings and the like but at the moment its all about the fairies in the garden. Of course I love this and think its so sweet and she will spend ages (for her- 20 minutes) in the garden looking for evidence of fairies, for example seed pods are to quote her ' little baby baby baby fairy cups' and spider webs are little beds for fairies to sleep on. Squiggles on the gum trees are fairy messages ( although I think that's from Snugglepot and Cuddlepie so that one was probably mine) etc etc. It is very sweet.
She is asleep now and I just found this:
* NOT her real name!!!
