No problem with mummy magic here. My mum had me and a friend we did carpool with that the car could fly, it was never the right time/too rainy/too hot/we were being too noisy... Can't believe she got away with it for as long as she did but I can still remember thinking maybe, just maybe, this Toyota Cressida will really take off one day!
My DD thought SHE could do magic when she was little, she had a wand, she would put 2 things in front of her and say "magic magic do your trick, do your trick today fast as you can say DING" - with her eyes shut
Think she was about 6 before she opened her eyes early...
And she thought I could lay chocolate (Kinder) eggs until yr1
I think it's a fabulous idea. I'm into keeping tooth fairies and all other magical childhood things alive for as long as possible. I know that's not everyone's way but each to their own. I do get quite cross at parents who make a big deal that their child doesn't believe in the tooth fairy/father Christmas etc now that they are 5, and they seem to delight in shattering the myth for as many people as they can. My dd who is 9 still believes in Santa, we went to Lapland last Christmas and she is convinced beyond all doubt she has met the real one. It was one of the most magical experiences ever, I cried
We tricked the tootfairy with a small white stone. Ds1 fell over the front of a hill, offroading down the mountain on his bike (after I had scared him shitless exlaiming that the midgets were coming to eat us up (in my view one of the most hillarious threads on mn, but not saved..... so not in classics) ) He lost his tooth, and we found a small white stone, and I told him, look, the toothfairy wont notice. She didn't of course.
Ds1 is convinced that he is 'magic' thanks to dh who kept 'making things disappear' for him from under a sheet when he said the magic words and then reappear! I think it is sweet, but I also like the letter idea, will keep that in mind should the need arise!
When I moved hundreds of miles away from my wee nephew I told him I had a magic telescope so I could still see him. My sister then phoned me to tell me when good things happen like winning a certificate etc, I would then phone him and tell him the exact details of the event. Kept him and I amused and happy for a long time.
