Thanks to a little episode called, "The Wonder Pets Save the Nutcracker," Vivi is obsessed with Sugar Plum Fairies. Super obsessed. When she wakes up every morning and I ask her how she slept, she answers, without fail, "I slept well. I dreamed about Sugar Plum Fairies." When I ask her what they were doing in her dream, she replies, "They were dancing on their tip-toes!"
It may or may not surprise you to find out we also spend quite a bit of time these days dancing on our tip-toes.
Due to a stroke of luck and a very timely growth spurt, cousin Eva swung into town with some out-grown costumes. Among them...a fairy!
Yes, it is technically a Tinker Bell costume (I think). But I am not really up to differentiating between the varietals of fairies, nor is Vivi interested. So a Sugar Plum Fairy she is. And what do Sugar Plum Fairies do at the Otto house?
They laugh at funny jokes.
They practice for Fairy Mardi Gras. -AHEM!-
They DO NOT like to stop dancing to take baths.
Even the prettiest fairies can sport Grumpy Frowns.
