I used to wonder what the point of the Tooth Fairy was. My niblings are 7 and 10 years old and they clearly don’t believe in it. So it seemed silly to make up a story for kids for are too old to believe it.
But the other day, Dyson came up to me and said his tooth was loose. I was kinda surprised because he’s only 4 years old. So I called my wife over and told her that I thought he might be losing his first tooth. By this point, Dyson started getting scared because he had no idea what was going on. So then my wife (who is much faster on the uptake than I am) said, “Oh, now you have a tooth for the Tooth Fairy!” and he he totally brightened up because he thinks fairies are cool.
I still don’t get the Easter Bunny, though.
