I immediately thought of my dear God child and the rough start we got off to. Read our story below. Hope it makes you smile.
Fairy God Mother, Not . . .
Thank goodness fairy tales usually have a happy
ending or I would be still crying today. All my
adult life I couldnít wait to be a God Mother.
I had so many ideas about the closeness and
special bond that we would share. Well, we
donít always get what we want, but if we are
very patient, things might just work out. I
was so excited to be asked to be God Mother
to my niece Cara. The only fly in the ointment
was that she had such strong stranger anxiety
that she would cry whenever I went near her.
As you can see by the pictures, she loved
spending time with her cousin Colleen and her
Uncle Joe. They didnít stress about whether she
liked them or not, like I did. I have to be honest
here, I left many family gatherings close to tears
because she wanted nothing to do with me. Well,
time passed as it always does and we got more
comfortable around each other. I love her to bits,
she is my princess (in the princess outfit I bought
for her), my tiger at the beach running into the
waves, and the next Manny Ramirez of baseball.
Needless to say I got my happy ending because
we are having great fun together and she now
realizes that I will indeed chase her around the
house for two hours long after others have given up.
We also both share a love of the color purple!
I love you Cara, from Your Fairy God Mother.

I love this page. I cried when I read the journaling (I'm not a crier). It's funny how kids are so particular at times no matter what you do. They definately have their own personality early on. I love the journaling dress and the beads along the top and bottom.
