My best friend and I used to go over to each other's houses and try to catch leprechauns! We would leave out candy and dollhouses for them to stay in. The weird thing is, once we left out a few oreo cookies in the kitchen, and probably about ten minutes later there was a small trail of cookie crumbs with a tiny chunk taken out of the cookie. My sister was still in diapers and my dad promised me he wouldn't touch the cookies. I've never worked up the nerve to ask my mom if she was the one who did it or not.
When I used to get floaters (those things in your eyes that float around), I thought that they were fairies and since nobody else could see them, I felt really special. Then in health class, 7th grade, that specialness I had felt was crushed.
Me and my sister shared a room when I was little, and we believed in the tooth fairy. We used to think up what our own personal tooth fairies looked like, mine resembeled Janet Jackson, my sister's resembeled Queen Amidala.
I was told that when the tooth fairy takes your fallen-out tooth, she will add that tooth to her collection and use many teeth that have fallen out of children to make sets false teeth for elderly people.
When I was very young, around four maybe, my mother bought me a book on the importance of brushing your teeth (I was an early reader). She told me that the tooth fairy wrote the book. One day I got curious to see what the tooth fairy's name was. A clever little boy I looked at the title page to see what her name was. The book was written by a guy.
When I was little, I lived near the Mississippi River, and we took ferry boats to cross the river and go into town. My grandfather from Texas used to tell us stories about Yip Yip the dog and a "ferry" that lived in a stump. If my grandfather said it, it was true for me. I never questioned this, I just imagined a tiny ferry boat stuck in the stump. My grandfather died when I was 6, so I never heard the stories after that.
It was many years later I realized it was a "fairy" that lived in the stump!!
For about 3-4 years, I believed that fairies lived in the air vent of my room. Worse yet, I truly believed that I was the fairy Queen and that my human parents were just holding me until I reached the age I could control my fairy kingdom (queendom?) by myself. When I came of age, I would be escorted back and shrunken down to fairy size to rule over my country of Fairies.
When I was about 7 years old, I still believed in the Tooth Fairy. So when we went to Europe for summer vacation, I actually lost 2 teeth. So I wondered if the Tooth Fairy would find me in Europe and I got so worried, I cried myself to sleep. (Yeah, thats sad.) And then when I woke up, I found money under my pillow and I cried because of joy.
Boy, is that dramatic.
My mother was always making up fairy-stories, but this is the only one I remember believing!
We had a large bush outside our house and it was round shaped and you could only see inside if you pulled the twings apart. One night during a thunderstorm my mother was comforting me and she said that it was just a fairy party up in the clouds, being curious I demanded to know where these fairies lived, "In the bush in the front garden," I was told.
For *years* I tiptoed past that bush every morning so as not to wake them up on my way to school.
It did have one good effect though - I've never been scared of Thunderstorms.
When mushrooms appeared in our garden my sister and I wanted to pick them but Dad said we mustn't because that's where the fairies lived and they'd be homeless and our family wouldn't benefit from their good magic.
'How is it we never see them?' we asked.
Dad said 'fairies only come out to dance and play and do their good magic late at night when children are fast asleep.
I remember being very dissapointed and sometimes trying to secretly stay awake looking out the window down to the garden - but I was always too tired to stay awake very long, so never saw any fairies.
I loved the mushrooms, and our magic garden. I felt great that we were able to provide so much housing for the fairies.
Being a curious child, I wanted to know what happened to the teeth the tooth-fairy used to swap for 10 pence (years ago!!!) so... I wrote the Chief Tooth-Fairy a letter and left it under my pillow with my tooth.
The next morning, there was a reply! It said that the teeth were made into magic fairy dust and that it was made by grinding the teeth together! I even got a magic sample! Awwwwww :) Fairies ROCK.
In Kindergarten on St. Patrick's day, I came to class and saw the table turned over, leggos all over the carpet, and green foot-prints everywhere. The teacher told me that leprechauns came the night before. I was terrified that leprechauns were going to come and hurt me the entire day, and my mom had to explain to me how leprechauns werent real. I wasn't convinced, so she had to write a letter to the teacher to ask the teacher to explain to me how they werent real. I was still skeptical and didn't believe what she told me for about a week.
When I was a child I really believed that my dad could catch leprechauns. He would tell me to look into his cupped hands with one eye to see the leprechaun lighting his pipe. As I was looking through, he would allow a little light through his fingers and yes I thought it was a pipe being lit!
When I was 4 I used to believe that is you wished hard enough you could get anything you wanted because you believed. I was very disappointed when I woke up because I didn't have a new barbie or dress. I kept trying though just incase I didn't believe hard enough.
When I was little, my mom told me that the tooth fairy used all the teeth she got to build a beautiful white castle. She told me that my teeth would be used to build the toilet.
You know how when you put your head down you can hear your heartbeat in your head? I thought it was a bunch of fairy construction workers building my pillow and coming up for breaks in my ears where they would mine my earwax potatoes.
.....yeah i was a little messed up ^.^;
U know on christmas eve when u r asleep and sugarplum fairies dance in head?! Well i thought that they danced on your head so then the next morning i would have bruises from where they tripped and fell!!!
When I was about two and it was Halloween, my mom dressed up as a fairy to go to a party, so naturally I assumed that she really was a fairy. Later I burst into tears when she explained that she couldn't make a picture from a magazine real for me. I was crushed!
when i was young and i lost my first tooth i was told that the tooth fairy was going to come in my room at night and replace my tooth with money i was excited at first but then i got scared because my older cousin told me that the tooth fairy was going to come to my house and rob us and kill my family..i was very young and i believed him.and i,not wanting to be robbed and murdered by an evil tooth fairy,flushed my tooth down the toilet.then my dad made me write a note to the tooth fairy explaining why i flushed my tooth down the toilet....
i still got scared everytime i lost a tooth....
i used to believe that when my nan got me a toothfairy box i got frightened and thought the toothfairy would pull all my teeth out when i was asleep
