A Question He Will Regret Asking

In the car earlier this week Devon asked me if I have ever lied to him. I told him that yes, I had lied to him.

He asked me what I had lied to him about. I told him that he didn't want to know and that if I did tell him that he would regret asking.

He kept badgering and badgering me about it so I finally said " If I tell you, you will be sad and you will be upset that you asked". He promised me that he wouldn't be upset or mad so I told him.

"There is no Tooth Fairy"

I thought for sure that he had already figured out that there was no Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus etc. but I guess I was wrong. He was totally shocked. He asked what happened to the teeth. I told him that I had them in my dresser drawer. Then he asked about where the money came from etc.

I told him that because he knows that the tooth fairy doesn't exist that now he doesn't get any more money when he loses teeth. He was soooooo disappointed.

He was also sorry that he asked.

My daughter knew there was no Santa or tooth fairy, but didn't want to admit it because she was afraid they would stop coming. I told her the Tooth Fairy would still come until they stopped losing teeth and Santa would probably come until they were 50. I guess that stuff is more for me anyway.

That is sooo cute.. I bet he does regret asking now.. As for Santa.. I'm shocked that there really isn't one? I see him every year at the Malls..

And did you then say, "See? I TOLD you!"

I have a feeling we have had our last Santa Christmas here...darn it.

Well ya did warn him. A basic "I told you so" would fit, but that might've stung to much on top of his new revelation. ;)

Show him Hellboy 2, and he won't miss the Tooth Fairy at all.
