All kinds of magic
A sprinkle of fairy dust adds to the fun of raising a child.

'And simsalabim! The silver ball is gone!'
The magician was sweating a bit in his black suit, but his act seemed slick enough. Until...
'It's in your POCKET!' screeched a voice from the front row. It was THAT little girl, the one at the party who hogs the jumping castle and at some point makes the birthday girl cry.
The magician looked in danger of losing his party spirit. But he pulled out his wand, tapped her on the head (not as hard as he could have) and pulled out a coin from behind her pony tail. She beamed from ear to ear.
Even cynics like a little magic, and as we go into the festive season, most kids will appreciate the effort to add a sprinkle of fairy dust. Even though they know the silver ball is in your pocket, and Santa Claus is Uncle Eugene in a fake beard.
