In my family we have a little running joke about fairies. For as long as I can remember we’ve all insisted that there are different kinds of fairies that do different kinds of jobs. In my sisters home there’s the ever illusive Coffee Fairy who brews the perfect cup of coffee while you’re sleeping and brings it to you piping hot moments after you wake up. In my Mother’s house there’s the Laundry Fairy, Cleaning Fairy, Dish Fairy, Vacuum Fairy, Lawn Mowing Fairy… The list goes on… and on… and on… and each one is responsible for the task they are thus named after.
In my house we’re big believers in the Dish Fairy and sincerely hope that if we show enough faith and enough persistence that one day they will show themselves and instead of looking at a sink full of dishes in the morning saying “I guess the dish Fairy didn’t come last night (Sigh)” I will be able to happily rejoice over an empty sink and a wiped counter knowing in my heart of hearts that there really are Fairies… and that with all the possible things in the world they could be using their magic for they have chosen to come into my home and wash pasta sauce off Fiesta Ware.
What kind of Fairies do you wish for?
