The Paci Fairy Arrived---

Well, all worked out Smile Papa and Grandma (I mean the Paci Fairy.) got their little cutie a bike today, and he is so proud! He even told someone that walked by us....LOOK WHAT THE PACI FAIRY BROUGHT ME! lol! so cute

now we need a helmet, for my safety patrol child Smile

So we have been talking about the paci fairy for weeks. Landon has his paci for naps and nighttime. I noticed he was slowly needing it less and less, and well he is 3 1/2 and took the opportunity to really talk up the fairy.

Well the paci fairy is supposed to bring him a bike when he gives it up. Sad Which is tonight. He talked about it like it was the best day of his life while we played in the covers.

I have no bike. Sad

Not only did I know today was going to be the day he decided, but Walmart and Meijer were completely out of bikes. I had planned to order one on sale, or find one off craigslist. Walmart had one bike left for 70 dollars. No way. The spider-man one we tried last week was 32 and I thought that was pushing it.

I bought him home a balloon and bag of M&M's and cried the whole way home :(. I even went into his room and WOKE HIM UP just now and told him how the paci fairy had a special message and was going to give him this balloon while she builds him the perfect bike. He was half out of it lol but got the message. :confused:

BOO.TO.ME.

Yahoo to Landon!

You did awesome. Maybe the paci fairy needs a couple of days to make sure he's really giving them up?

:bigarmhug: You handled it perfectly.

My mom once wrote a letter "from the tooth fairy" to explain why she was delayed - run off her feet with teeth dropping left and right - it was very funny, cute, and totally fooled my brother. Now it is a keepsake.

WTG, Landon with ditching the paci!!!

Deb, that is very sweet of you! :bigarmhug: thank you! I was on the phone with mom this morning and told her, and literally Dad called 10 minutes later while we were at Meijer and said he was putting money in my account. So I bought a bike that isn't put together.. :rolleyes: because I still couldn't spend 70!

My nap time job today... Smile
