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!
Now he knows! How much did he get?ReplyDelete
$2.00. I guess that's cheap by today's standards. ;0)Delete
It's okay. You might as well get it out of the way.ReplyDelete
I had been trying to explain it to him, but up until this point, he didn't believe it. I guess he's ready to embrace the truth.Delete
and then you flapped your fairy wings like a boss :)ReplyDelete
What a smarty pants!ReplyDelete
Isn't he funny? I didn't expect that.Delete
lol now you get the recognitionReplyDelete
Better late than never!Delete
Now the magic is gone.ReplyDelete
It's so sad, it makes me want to cry. ;0)Delete
I figured it out when my mom told me about Santa. She continued to give me money though, as an incentive to keep my teeth clean and healthy (since most kids don't think of that as a big deal).ReplyDelete
I figured it out around that time, too. I'll tell you though, I was really devastated to find out the Easter Bunny wasn't real!Delete
He was on to you the whole time!!! Scandalous!ReplyDelete
Can you believe it? ;0)Delete
Ugh! My mom told me when I announced Santa wasn't real that if I didn't believe, I didn't get gifts from him. That seemed to buy a couple more years of silence from me about it! Might work with the tooth fairy, too. She only visits when kids believe in her...ReplyDelete
Ha! I don't think that will go over so well at my house, since my boy still has a mouth-full of teeth to lose.Delete
See what happens when you have a birthday. :)ReplyDelete
Ha! And my birthday is in a couple of days!Delete
It is sad when all of the magic ends.ReplyDelete
It's kind of sad when they quit believing in some of the "magic" of childhood.ReplyDelete
It is a little sad, but when Bubba grows up, he'll know what an awesome Mama he has.ReplyDelete
