The Binky fairy has failed me

This weekend, while Jelly bean was on the floor throwing one-of-her-typical-three-year-old-fits, she stopped and said, "Mommy, something is under my bed."

And because we don't store anything under her bed, I chose to investigate. And there it was...a lone binky.

Me: "Well, look at that, it's a binky, the Binky fairy must have dropped it."
Jelly: "The Binky fairy dropped it? Can I have it?"
Me: "Umm, no."
Jelly: "Let me see it. " I nervously show it to her.
Me: "I guess we will have to let it out for the Binky fairy to pick-up."
Jelly: "Yes. Maybe the Binky fairy can leave it for my baby sister."
Me: "No, I think another baby can use it before then."
Jelly: "oh."

Nice try though. Thank goodness she didn't find that binky could have been a binky disaster!
