I know my hubby and I have basically stopped the tooth fairy madness -- mainly because my kid stopped loosing his teeth. DUH! But the real deal is that he figured it all out. On more than one occasion we forgot to slip some money under his pillow. On the last big slip-up, he asked what happened, "Mom," he said "why didn't the tooth fairy take my tooth." I told him the tooth fairy was really busy the night before and would come the next night. He gave me that suspicious look. The next night, his daddy slipped a twenty under his pillow. I know.....I know....a twenty???!!! But we felt so guilty and he knew it. The jig was up. The next day my son asked me "Is daddy the tooth fairy?" My response, "why do you ask?" The look on his face was priceless. He knew. I mean, he KNEW. And he knew I knew he knew. Yet, he didn't want to ruin it. I could see in his eyes that he didn't want to mess up a good thing. He wanted to get more money. So, he said "just asking," and walked away. That was it. I don't think he lost any additional teeth after that. HMMMM??? Funny.
