The House Fairy Came to Visit...

Who is the House Fairy you ask? She is a lady who "works for Santa and checks in on little boys and girls from time to time to see if they have cleaned their rooms. If you know Flylady, then you probably know the House Fairy. She even has a website and you can go visit her there to introduce your kids to this benevolent and most matriarchal of fairies. I "call" her from time to time and she leaves little treats for my kids if they have cleaned their room and made their beds. Her site offers (for a small fee) official House Fairy letterhead and free videos and even a "best rooms" photo gallery. Here is the note the House Fairy left the kids yesterday when we got home from the store:

Why She Works: She makes cleaning up fun and her "system" promotes rewarding children for good deeds and hard work. She is always positive and encouraging

My Only Problem: At some point, like with Santa, I am going to have to her her the awful truth...and she shouldn't be a replacement for parental discipline. :)
Here is a photo of the kids room just after cleaning (my daughter asked me to vacuum, so it would be "extra clean"). Pretty good job if you ask me!

  4. What a charming idea! I may have to tweak it a little cuz my boys are not at all interested in fairies. Maybe I can make it elves?
