“This will be the first time I will ever have a sleep over at a different fairy house. Except for grandmas house which doesn’t count. because she’s grandma, and she’s old like you mommy, but much older, and I will be with my friend, and we will sleep together at the same time, and giggle at the same things, and tell special secrets that no one will ever know “ said Dharma. “By the way mommy, did I tell you my special Friday secret yet?”
She squeezed her stuffed Miss Ladybug and said, “I’m soooo fairy excited!!!!!”
Before Prana had a chance to answer, the girls saw each other. They squealed, giggled and hugged each other until they fell on the ground.
“I’ve got some secrets that I haven’t told anyone yet, do you want to hear?” asked Dharma.
“Yes, but I have to tell you first, ….We have to make it to the ladybug fair in the morning! We have to get to bed on time!” Dawn told her. “It’s very important!” She said very seriously.
“OK?” asked Dawn.
“OK!” said Dharma.
“OK!” answered Dawn.
Dharma and Dawn ran into Dawns room to swap secrets, play dolls and talk all about the sleepover. Dawn made a whole list of things to do and she read the list to Dharma.
Dawns daffy dazzling dreamy sleepover with Dharma list:
- Play with fairy dolls.
- Swap secrets.

“What’s that?” asked Dharma feeling kindof scared.
“It’s my frightmare picture,” said Dawn.
“What’s a frightmare picture? Asked Dharma.
“I used to get nightmares,” said Dawn rubbing her legs like they hurt. “But now I can sleep the whole night through. Cause now I can beat the monster in my dreams. I take my Kooky magic wand to bed with me, and when the monster scares me in my dreams, I pick up my wand and I turn him into a big ole fluffy bunny rabbit bunny unicorn. Or a doggy, or a mouse, or a cheesy noodle. And I’m not even allergic to the mouse like I am in real life. I don’t even sneeze in my dreams one bit. Isn’t that fun? That’s my picture I made of the bad monster. Here’s the picture I made when I turn him into a big fluffy bunny rabbit unicorn.”
“WOW,” said Dharma, “I didn’t know you could do that.”
“Yeah,” said Dawn, “me neither until I talked with Teacher Shaman-A-Na-A-Noooo-Nee Noo nana.”
“You mean shanana-bannanana,” said Dharma moving her head back and forth with every syllable.
“No its shamana-frananana,” said Dawn like her head was shaking.
“No its shamana santa gona,” said Dharma sing songy.
“Not its amana-yo-yonaaaaa,” said Dawn singing back.
“Fo-fanna, bobannana,” said Dharma giggleing.
The girls giggled and rolled on the floor humming and singing each different name they could think of.
Later, while the girls were dressing up Miss Lady as a pirate, Dharma asked:
“Do you want some candy I snuck out of my secret candy box? I have chocolate.”
“No thank you,” said Dawn, “I can’t ‘cause it will make my monster even scarier.”
“What monster?” asked Dharma.
“My monster, remember?” answered Dawn and she pointed to her monster picture.
“Teacher Shalla-haha-mama said I should eat better so my monster doesn’t come back, ‘specially before bed.” They began to jump on Dawns bed.
“What about Tangy Twirly Treats?” asked Dharma
“No, NO Tangy Twirly Treats,” answered Dawn.
“What about a Twisted Tangy Twirly Treat?” asked Dharma.
“NO no Twisty Tanga Twirla Treat.” answered Dawn.
“What about Fudgy Froggy Frapps?” asked Dharma.
“NO, NO, Fudgy, Froggy Frapps,” answered Dawn.
“What about Foamy Foo Foo Fudgy Frogeye Frapps?” asked Dharma.
“No,” answered Dawn.
“What about silly Dawn saucy spaghetti swirls?” asked Dharma.
“NO, NO, NO!” answered Dawn.
“What about tiny tasty turtle tummy treats?” asked Dharma.
“NO, NO NO NO treats!” answered Dawn.
“what about oooh, what about bon bonny boingers?” asked Dharma. “Or, yummy yoyo yonkers? What about ..”
“NO, NO none of those SILLY!!!! Not until tomorrow,” answered Dawn.
So Dharma ate all of the candy all by herself, and they played all night until it was almost time for lightning bugs out. Dawn’s mommy came in with some chamomile tea and pumpkin seeds for the both of them, but only Dawn drank hers. Dharma gave hers to Dawn’s lightning bug. Dawn fell asleep as soon as her head hit the pillow. Dharma wasn’t tired when the clock turned ten o’clock, or eleven o’clock, or even twelve o’clock. She was having so much fun playing with Dawn’s toys and reading her books that she completely forgot about the ladybug fair the next day. Dharma was so tired, but she also felt scared and worried. What if my monster and Dawn’s monster get together in my dream and come and get me? So she started to cry because she didn’t know what to do. Dawn’s mommy came in and asked her what was wrong.
“I want ‘hic’ to ‘hic’go‘hic’ home! ‘hic’” cried Dharma.
“What if I stay in here with you? Do you think you’d like to stay then?” asked Dawn’s mommy.
“NO! ‘hic’ ”, Dharma got louder, “I want to go home…‘hic’..NOW!!! I want my mommy” ‘hic’ crying even louder.
Dawns mommy got dressed and took Dharma home. Dharma was still sniffling when she got home. Dharma was so tired she climbed half way into bed and fell asleep face down and her feet on the ground. Prana lifted her up, and put her to bed.
“Good night my special fairy bug.”
