producer by day, tooth fairy by night

I believed in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny until pretty late in the game.   And just as I started to question the fantasy, my parents pulled some great trick and we awoke to huge bunny tracks in the snow one Easter morning.  My four and six year old question why the Easter Bunny has a zipper up his back.  "Real Easter Bunnies don't have zippers, mom.  It's a costume."  At four or six, I wasn't noticing zippers.  But, because I believed in these fantasy heroes for a quarter of my life, I find much joy in my recent moonlighting as the Tooth Fairy.  The tiptoeing, the much needed dexterity, and the sheer amazement in my son's face the next morning.  "How did we not hear the Tooth Fairy last night?"  We don't say "her" because we haven't decided if it's a boy or girl.

The joys of parenting that I never thought I would really find this joyful.

I'm having my first baby in March and Santa, the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, those are the things I can't wait to do with her. They're by far some of my best childhood memories. Enjoy being that Fairy!

I'm always torn on the Santa deal. I want good behavior because it right, not for Santa. So I have a hard time playing him up. But I don't ruin him either. But being the tooth fairy last week was so fun. that I can get into! We need a pillow!

Oh sos so sweeet. My two youngest believe in Santa and Tooth Fairy still. Tallulah is 11 but seems to still believe, which is so magical.

omg... i had a little private investigator on my hands (aka- jacob)!! questioned every little detail and noticed every little inconsistency!! we really had to be on our game with him.

until one day (easter morning) we totally failed... we had a family event to attend the night before and couldn't get them in bed and everything in place until waaay late. in utter exhaustion, we placed all of the trash the containers/plastic in the kitchen trashcan. and of course, on easter morning, jacob went to put something in the trash- and the rest is history :).
