Because my house generally runs just shy of chaos, we forgot to do the tooth fairy thing last night for my almost 8 yo. He has an innocence and joy for life but this morning he was broken hearted. My husband gives him the spiel about overworked tooth fairies and reassures him she would come tonight while I signal him to do it now. He successfully sneaks upstairs and a few minutes later, I tell the kids I heard a tinkling noise and go check. My son is too afraid to go but his sister goes with him. I hear the happy screams that they found the loot and think all is well. Down they come to tell me they actually saw the tooth fairy...actually 2, boy and girl, around 12 yo and tiny. Who knew??
