The Dirt Fairy

We have almost hourly visitations from the dirt fairy at this time of year. This magical little creature carries a little plastic shovel and pail. As your child leave the house she places a little present in their boot. That's right. Its dirt. Maybe mom will be lucky, and the little child will haplessly empty their boot outside. More likely, the dirt will spread all over the floor as they kick their boots off . . (Boots OFF at the DOOR, AARON!). Or, even better, the dirt will stay inside the boot until your toddler decides to take them INTO THE LIVING ROOM and upend that lovely pile of sand all over the carpet. Oh the joys of the fairy kingdom.
