this tooth fairy quits
The first time this happened, she was really upset. But this time she didn't seem phased as she told me, "The tooth fairy didn't come."
Out of curiosity I asked, "Do you really believe a little fairy comes around collecting teeth and leaving money behind?" (Because, hey, if she doesn't believe it, let's not go through this charade!)
She rolled her eyes and said, "I know it's you mom." (Josh was sitting there and his eyebrows flew up)
I asked, "What about the Easter Bunny? Does he really hop around leaving candy and eggs?"
"No. He's not real."
"What about Santa?"
Very seriously, she said, "Yes. Santa is real."
Then she said I could just give her the money instead of waiting for the night to come around again, since last time I forgot to wake up. So I gave her a hand full of change and we called it good.
Josh said he wanted to take his turn being the tooth fairy next time someone looses a tooth, so I guess I'm off the hook :)
