First, I want to let you know that I'm a guest on Janie Junebug's blog. I'm talking about bullying - something that happened to me when I was a kid - and sharing some thoughts on it. Please stop by and visit!
Now for the story:
My nine-year-old son has a loose tooth. Which means the tooth fairy should be paying a visit to our house soon. I've told my son already that I'm the tooth fairy. And Santa Claus. And the Easter Bunny. But he doesn't believe me.
"I'm going to do a little experiment," he said. "I'm not going to tell anyone when my tooth comes out. I'm just going to stick it under my pillow and see if the tooth fairy comes."
"But dude," I said. "If you don't tell me you lost your tooth, how am I going to leave some cash under your pillow?"
He looked at me very seriously. "Mama, you're not the tooth fairy. And I'm going to prove it!"
