Goofy's first lost tooth!

I told you yesterday that Goofy's tooth was loose...

Aaaaand, the moment we've all been waiting for...!!!!


Thing2 came running up the stairs carrying the Goofy Child...
His tooth fell out!!

The Goofy Child wanted to know how in the world he was going to get it back in there.


When Thing2 was unsuccessful, he tried to put it back himself.


I wondered how in the world the Tooth Fairy would visit the child who never sleeps and you all had some brilliant ideas. I used a combination of your ideas to come up with this...


2 identical eggs...


One filled with quarters...


One filled with a lost tooth...

The old switcheroo...


and the Tooth Fairy's job is done :)
 While the Goofy one was falling asleep, he looked over at me and said... "Is the Tooth Fairy real?" I'm thinking.... shit! I've never actually told my kids that those kinds of things are real, I just counted on them believing on their own. This is a new question for me (I know! Odd children, what else can I say?) and I don't know how to answer. I can't say yes but I can't say no, so what can I say?

Me: "Uh... what do you think?"
Goofy: "I think no."
Me: "Why don't you want the Tooth Fairy to be real?"
Goofy: "I don't like to have the loose tooth. It hurts."
Me: "I see. Well, even if the Tooth Fairy wasn't real, you would still have the loose tooth."
Goofy: "Oh."

Luckily, that was the end of that and he drifted off to sleep. How do you handle these types of questions?

  2. I do the same thing you do about these questions. I turn it back on my kids to see what they think. My niece was petrified of Santa when she was little because she didn't want anyone coming into her house even to leave gifts! Don't want to scare these kids so I let them believe what they believe and leave it at that.
