We have new dragons in the Treehouse. It’s very unsettling. My wizlet daughters found three dragon eggs in June and in mid-November they gave us little annoying (but admittedly cute) hatchlings with tiny claws and sharp fangs. The eldest hatchling, Midna, is crimson in colour and has a fiery little personality to match. The middle […]
Today it is my great privilege to have breakfast with a fairy princess. It is not as daunting as you might think. Yes, she is startlingly beautiful, with manners and graces that only her race can achieve, but a more natural unaffected creature you could never hope to meet. She’s only three and happens to […]

It’s okay, it’s okay…” Such is my mantra today. My spirit is low, but I am still on the winning side. I have fought many such dragons and […]
I have three daughters. One is a fairy princess, the second is a wizard, the third is just ten months old, so we really don’t know quite who she is yet. It always amazes me how different people can be, even if they share the same house. Or castle, as the case may be. My […]
