Anyways Gameboy who's a year older than his toothless brother, was asking me about Mrs. Fairy after the other two had gone to bed. He came right out and asked, "Tell me the truth mom, cause I need to know, is the tooth fairy real?" Oh boy here we go. He's asked before and as usual I gave my round about answer..that it's all about the magic and mystery. That seems to have held him this long.
Tonight I threw the question back at him on whether he thought she was real. He answered yes, but I could tell that he was kind of saying it to not really lose the thought of the magic. I told him that Mrs. Tooth is a very busy gal and needs assistance and that I help her out in the WorkingMomma household. He took this answer pretty well.
I'm thinking about waking him up a little bit early and letting him join in on the mystery and magic that is the Tooth Fairy. I think he's reached that age of reason. I think he's ready.
Santa may be a whole 'nother story.

I forgot that Wonderboy is a early riser. As
"Mom the toothfairy came, but I can't find the dollar."
Clutching the dollar conspicuously in my hand, I send him to the bathroom. "Look for my dollar" he hollars. "No prob, bud" I say as I throw the dollar on the dresser. "There it is, it was under your book."
Another tooth crises averted for another day.
