I belong to a local parents' group and this morning I received a post about the "House Fairy". As an artist who is a parent that loves fairies I had to check out the link to this website. www.housefairy.org
After reading around the site and watching the video I feel a little smarmy. Its the same challenge I have with the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus. My kid is smart and she asks very direct questions and makes clear deductions and I don't want to be caught lying to her. This past Easter she already said to me "Mom, there is no Easter Bunny, is there?" She was 3!!! I sort of skirted the question neither lying to her nor all the way answering her. I can't remember what I said, but I think I just asked her to consider what she thought about it.
So, here is my question, if I were to employ this tactic Lexee will eventually realize that there is no House Fairy or that the House Fairy is Mom. Will she think that I deceived her or will she think that it was a fun motivator?
