A conversation from yesterday:
Adrian: Mom! The Tooth Fairy forgot to leave money under my pillow last night! I lost a tooth, remember?!
Me: Uhmmmmmmm ::looks at Jesse::
Jesse: Is it 'that time'?
Me: I think so.
Ryan: Oooh! Oooh! I wanna tell him!
Adrian: Tell me what?
Ryan: Adrian, how do you think the Tooth Fairy is able to give money to all the kids that lose teeth on the same night?
Adrian: Uhhhh....she flies?
Ryan: You don't think it's our parents? Maybe?
Adrian looks at me at this point. "Mom?"
Adrian: Hmm. Well, do I still get a dollar?
An hour later....
Adrian: If there's no Tooth Fairy, then I suppose you're going to tell me there's no Santa Claus or Easter Bunny, either....?
Me: Uhhhh.....sorry, son.
Before he starts to think too much, I go into how every holiday had a start with a real person or event.... St. Nick....Holland....wooden shoes....the Pagan holiday of Oestara....St. Valentine.....yada yada yada.
After all that, he says "How can they fit all the gifts into those small wooden shoes?!"
