"Come on down to the mermaid cafe and I will buy you a bottle of wine...."

Last night was the second annual Fairy Circle Sleepover. There was swimming and eating and firefly catching and chatting and movie watching and even some sleeping. But bestly, there was dancing. The girls were outside in the dark catching fire flies, running amok, and shouting. But us Moms couldn't hear them. Because we were inside having a few faerie-drinks and cranking up Joni Mitchell. Of course. Is she not the ultimate fairy? And we started dancing. Oh, its been so long since I've really danced with a bunch of other people who were really dancing too. It was great. It was soul reviving. And the feeling must have leaked out into the yard. The baby fairies congregated at the back door, peering in. Then suddenly, they all came in to dance - really dance. We all danced together. At one point I stepped to the side with Joubert to catch my breath and watch the joyful noise. A sweaty red faced little fairy ran up to us and shouted, "THIS IS THE BEST PARTY EVER!" Then she ran away. And we laughed. And that pretty much sums it all up. Here is a quick snippet I filmed as we Fairy Mothers were just getting warmed up.

Now that does look like the BEST PARTY EVER! I'm so glad the fairies and mini-fairies had such a good time!

Just like a slumber party of yore. Except the booze was legal. Maybe that's part of what is so much fun about fairy circle? The moms get to be little girly for a while. The girls get to hang out with Big Mamas.

Oh, how fun. Did all the mama fairies crash there too? That would be such a good time!

That's the thing I miss the most about girlfriends. Girly parties. Girlfriends are seriously under-rated.

I am so starting a Circle of my own.
