the tooth fairy lives

Georgia lost her first tooth yesterday! She looks so much older with the 'gone spot' in her smile. I'll try to get a picture of it, but it may be a while. She doesn't allow pictures to be taken of her lately. She put it under her pillow and the 'tooth fairy' gave her five bucks in exchange. When I was little my teeth only brought a quarter, but what can you buy with a quarter? She woke us all excitedly this morning with, "So the tooth fairy is real. She gave me a dollar five!" After explaining that five dollars is a lot more than a dollar five, I started to feel guilty about deceiving her about tooth fairies. I mean, we made it very clear that Santa Claus was just a story, so why be inconsistent? I guess its because I really couldn't bring myself to say that fairies aren't real. Peter Pan goes way down deep in my psyche and I don't want go around saying THAT because we all know that when someone says THAT a fairy somewhere falls down dead. I need a little magic in my life. So for now, at least, the tooth fairy is alive and well at our house.

Yep. You know I'm a believer, too. Can't hurt.
