This is a bit strange...

Before the girls moved in with us we would put a small piece of chocolate on the kid's pillow if the bed was made in the morning. We stopped doing this shortly after they came because we didn't want to reinforce any food issues. Several weeks ago Katherine mentioned it and she and Anna wrote letters to the "Chocolate Fairy" so we started it back up.
Anna has expressed concern about the Chocolate Fairy's ability to find her in NewTown and has even written letters to her telling her that she is moving. I would like to be able to either say, "The Chocolate Fairy is in OurTown only" or "I'm sure the Chocolate Fairy will get your letters and visit you at T's." Would you be so kind as to ask T if this is something she is willing to do so I can speak to Anna about it?
The details are that the room has to be clean and the bed made before they leave for school, and we place a small chocolate such as a Hershey's kiss or Miniature on the pillow before they get home. I'm not sure if Amy believes it's real like Anna does but she also wrote letters and participates.
Thank you so much.

The response:

I love it. Will do.

This is the coolest idea! I am so having a conversation with The Chocolate Fairy. By the way, if ever you have a need I went to school with the Tooth Fairy and I dated Santa before my Dh so I have private numbers to reach them.

I like it too...by the way, you seem to have used three names for two girls. Did you intend to?
