What Happened to the Princess Fairy that I Used to Know?

by Leila on November 1, 2012

My daughter has always been obsessed with magical creatures – especially fairies. When she was old enough to walk she pranced around with fairy wings.

It became her thing… she was the fairy girl.

As she got older she stopped wearing her wings as much. It made me sad because I felt like it was an end to an innocent phase. I figured she was too old for that pretend stuff.

As Halloween approached we were having a hard time figuring out a family theme. We somehow ended up with a Vampire theme. The kids decided to have their own unique vampires. When we were at the Halloween store her eyes lit up when she saw the fairy wings…

And I figured we could skip the theme if she wanted to be a fairy princess just one last time.

Well, she had a different idea. She wanted to be an evil vampire fairy…

Halloween was such a rush that I didn’t get individual pictures. When I told the kids I was sad about this my daughter said she could just wear her evil fairy costume this weekend and we could do a creepy photoshoot.

My Dad said she is following in my footsteps and I used to be a sweet princess type turned psychotic warrior queen. I don’t know what he is talking about… I wasn’t a vampire or a fairy for Halloween…

I was the Mommy Vampire Slayer. “Clean your rooms or Mommy is going to stake you!”

My daughter is a princess too! She is 14 now, but fairies and mythical fairie like creatures have always been her thing; along with princesses. When she made a transition out of dressing as the princess, she started drawing princesses, and fairies, and kingdoms – I couldn’t have been more excited. I want her to always have this creativity in her life. It means to me that she will always possess a child like wonder that lets her imagine something possible that others might not see. I love this post. My daughter ROCKSHARD!

@towns4write Thanks for stopping by!! That is awesome!! My daughter paints fairies, dragons and all mythical creatures. It’s her way to connect with her interest but not have to do that by prancing around like a fairy all the time.
