You’ve heard of the tooth fairy?

Posted on: 11/01/2011

Well, let me introduce you to the guilt fairy.

She pops into existence the moment you conceive your first child.  And she never goes away again until you die.

She sits on your shoulder.  She watches everything that you do, every decision you make about your child, and makes you feel guilt for doing something wrong.

Even if you didn’t do anything wrong, she still makes you feel guilty somehow.  This is her special power.

Nobody tells you about this before you have children.

But I’ll let you in on a secret.  If you want her to go away, just drink vast amounts of alcohol.  You’ll be guilt-free for an entire night.

But she’ll be back with a vengeance in the morning…

I prefer the tooth fairy myself.


Next time – the House Fairy!
