So I was nearly in tears as I drove into work this morning. See yesterday, my just turned 6 year old lost his first tooth. That alone on a bad day could push me over the top. But what really got to me is that he came right up to me and said I know you and mommy are the tooth fairy. I tried to convince him there is a tooth fairy, but he would have none of it. Especially since Melissa gave in and told him the truth when he asked her. So a part of me was like – Good for you Josh, way to think critically and skeptically. But a bigger part of me mourns his first real loss of magic. I mean it was his first tooth. Is it really to much to ask of the Universe that he be given at least one magical morning of finding a dollar coin under his pillow, from some mysterious source? It breaks my heart. I want him to feel the magic in the world before society rips it away from him.
