I put a spell on you

Bathing Morgan is always amusing. I love how she throws up her arms and wails, as if to say "Why?! Gods, WHY?!?! WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO MEEEEEEEE?!?!"

The fact that she pouts makes it even cuter! I know I keep going on about how gorgeous, beautiful, cute and adorable she is - she's miiiiine. AAAAALL MIIIIINE!! So I can't help it :D Plus, whenever I'm really pleased with something I just act like a broken record and become unable to take about anything else.

My aunt, who lives in the States, sent Morgan an Amazon UK voucher which I have put to good use. I got Morgan a big pack of nappies, a big pack of wipes, 3 educational toys, a Flower Fairy activity book [] by Cicely Mary Barker[], where you can make a mask and wings, and the Faerie Oracle Deck [] by Brian Froud []. I own the deck myself, but I figured she ought to have her very own. The awesome thing about it is, at the moment I will be using it as decorations for her room. Once she grows up though, she can put it to good use should she wish.

I do have a book for her - one I bought years ago with the intention of giving it to a daughter of mine, should she ever be born. I never planned to become a parent, mind you. I always thought to myself "If it happens, it happens. If not, fuck it," so to have purchased this book so many years ago must have been an indication that deep down, I knew Morgan would come to me, one way or another. When I find the book, I will tell you what it is called. In the meanwhile, I'll describe it. It is pretty much a young girl's Book of Shadows - i.e. A journal in which one can write spells, rituals, and information related to magick and what not, along with personal entries as well. It is all about mermaids, fairies, witches and other awesome beings!

All this can either lead to Morgan falling in love with all things fantasy and magickal, or it can backfire and have her opt for the commercial crap which I hate so much, such as Dora The Explorer which I find pointless outside of the States.

Fingers crossed!
