Is the Tooth fairy real?

In short, no. But I always told Alexis that I didn't know. I told her I always had something under my pillow after I had lost a tooth, as a child, so I never really gave her a clear answer. "Yes, of course there is a Tooth fairy" or "Um, no. There is no such thing" never came out of my mouth. I always wanted her to believe what she wanted. Fairies, bunnies, and the like are fun and magical for some kids. Alexis has always been a little different when it had come to those things. When she was four we took her to Disneyland and she said she had a great time with all the people dressed up as Snow White, Mickey Mouse, The Little Mermaid, etc. She is really logical, inquisitive and the total no nonsense type.

Alexis had lost her top tooth yesterday, she was excited (it's her 3rd tooth she has lost). Alexis is the type that waits for things, she wiggled her tooth but never, in a million-trillion years, would she pull it out. Even though all she needed was a twist or a teensy pull for over a week. It looked silly all last week because it was half way out and it looked like she had a snaggle tooth. I'm not going to lie, I laughed at her expense several times. She asked me if the tooth fairy was real. I told her to Google it. That is always my answer when I don't feel like explaining things. Here is a video, DO NOT LET YOUR SMALLER CHILDREN SEE THIS. I would hate to ruin whatever it is your children believe in. Sorry for the crappy quality, it's cloudy and rainy outside and I have no lights on because my daughter is a environmental nazi, she goes on and on about greenhouse gasses and its really boring. I swear, I have the weirdest 6 year old ever.





P.S. I think I fessed up about the Easter Bunny when she was four, we went the God route instead.

  5. She said she thought it was the end if dollars and treats for teeth. Once we discussed that she would still get the prizes she was ok.

  6. That's awesome, Sabrina. It's fascinating to see those thought processes while she works out her sense of reality.

  8. I think it's great that we can now tell our kids to Google it :) Too bad my Mom couldn't do that when she was little...she remained clueless for way too long!

    Wanted to thank you for offering to put up the This for That button on your site. I'm going to work on turning that graphic into a button ASAP :)

    Thanks so much!

  13. Hey :) I'm not good with layouts...what do you need? Maybe I can find someone if I know what you're looking for! I really, really wish I knew how to do a lot of stuff with html...I usually look up tutorials for stuff and then struggle through it, but you can't do that for everything.

  17. I love the video, she is precious. I love her laugh! I really love how you let her make up her own mind about things and let her decide what she wants to believe in, I think more parents need to be like that with their kids. :)
