Toothfairies & Growing Up
Our almost 8 year old is finally starting to lose some teeth. He lost his third one on Thursday evening. And while it was worth a mini celebration, Isaiah had another idea. Off to bed, toothfairy visited because Isaiah found his dollar & confronted his Dad. "It was you, I pretend sleep, and I saw you"...."There's no toothfairy." And with that announcement...He looked differently to me...like he was growing up too fast. He already told his younger brother the news..but vowed to not spill the beans for anyone at school. We told him he was now part of a secret society that knows special information. What else could we do? I wasn't fond of the toothfairy thing to begin with. But when he lost that first tooth, he was excited to get that special visit. I must say a part of me is relieved to not have to pretend anymore...what's next??? The Christmas Secret of a special visitor...I'm sure it will.
