6let is 8.5. He rides the school bus and goes to public school. I figure it's about time he started to question Santa et al.
Yesterday M2 (6) lost her tooth. I KNEW I'd forget so I asked DH to remind me several times. Every time he laughed at me "we won't forget."
6:30 this morning a crying M2 comes into my room "The Tooth Fairy didn't come last night!!" I give hugs and tell her there must have been a lot of lost teeth last night and the Tooth Fairy was just running behind.
M2 is telling this to Max and 6let pipes up with "The Tooth Fairy wasn't busy. Mom's the Tooth Fairy and she just forgot." M2 didn't hear it so I sent 6let up to my room to talk.
I tell him he's right, but M2 and Max still believe and he better not ruin it for them. His eyes got huge and he says "I was just kidding. You mean the Tooth Fairy isn't real?!" Then I could see him wondering about Santa and the Easter Bunny. Ugh.
I gave him a good finger wag about not talking about it to ANYONE.
And a dad at the bus stop said kids get more money when the Tooth Fairy runs behind. I had to pony up $2.
