You may remember a couple of months ago, that my son was going to conduct an experiment regarding the tooth fairy. He wasn't going to tell me when he lost his loose tooth. He was just going to stick it under his pillow and see if the fairy showed up. His theory was that I was not the tooth fairy. Because the tooth fairy was real.
I was very concerned that I would miss this big event. Well, I didn't have to worry. Two nights ago, after I tucked him into bed, he came running out of his room. "Mama, my tooth fell out!"
Good, I thought. This is going to be easy.
We found the tooth fairy pillow, which had been tucked away for several years, and placed the tooth inside the pocket.
That night, the tooth fairy paid a visit.
The next morning, when I was making breakfast, Bubba came downstairs. He was holding some cash in his hand. He looked at me and grinned. "Thanks for the money, Mama!"
So much for the tooth fairy!
