The Laundry Fairy
Posted by Maleen
Today I was visited by the laundry fairy. I had folded half the laundry and I was in Daisy's room feeding her when June walked in and told me to close my eyes. Okay. Then every few seconds she told me to close my eyes again as she passed by the room. She is older so I don't worry about her usually, but there are still times when she gets into things hoping to surprise me and then it ends up being too much of a surprise. So I was getting a little curious as to what she was scheming. I was not supposed to go in my room, but I had to change the baby and all the diapers were in there. So I peeked in...
I noticed right away that most of the laundry had been put away; however, June does not like a surprise to be interrupted half way through. She yelped in dismay and told me not to look and I obediently told her that I did not see a thing.
Later she asked me what I thought happened to all the laundry. I asked if maybe she had put it away.
"Nope," was her reply. Of course, questioning the other girls came up with no solution either. I exclaimed, "It must have been the laundry fairy. I have heard about her, but she has never visited my house before." I could tell that June liked this answer a lot and she immediately played along. She told me that she would go look for the laundry fairy to thank her and she came back with a detailed description. I wish I could tell you more of what she looked like but I was on the phone part of the time while June chattered on about the laundry fairy. My favorite part (that I did catch) was the laundry fairy wears a shirt with a picture of a guy doing laundry on it. "A guy?" was my response. It seems fitting since we all wish some other guy was doing the laundry for us.
I'm sure I can work this to my advantage. The only problem is I had to put the laundry fairy to bed before the second half of the laundry was finished. So, I guess it is just me tonight. I'll have to remember and finish during business hours next time.
