An excerpt from a conversation among my coworkers today [who are parents of one, two, and one-expecting-another-soon kids]:

"So my daughters picked up this annoying meme from the neighbors' kids -- they think there's fairies in the garden, and they leave notes for the fairies. And it's not like the tooth fairy where they come running up to you going 'daddy daddy I lost a tooth' and you know it's under their pillow -- you have to search the entire backyard for notes to reply to."

"Well, you don't have to respond to the notes. It's an object lesson... on how fairies don't exist."

"Or you could respond to only one of the two kids' notes."

"When the other kid asks why the fairies don't answer her notes, you tell her 'because fairies don't exist'."

"And when people tell you you're a bad parent, you ask, 'yes, but to which child?'"
