So, I learned what the tooth fairy is afraid of
Today, I was told what the tooth fairy is afraid of. It started off as an innocent conversation between myself and my five year old daughter who has recently lost a tooth. She couldn't wrap her mind around the fact that she had to be asleep for the tooth fairy to take her tooth. I don't blame her at all, I mean, it's got to be difficult to fly around at night collecting teeth right? I've also spent a lot more time thinking about this today than I ever did as a child.
My daughter asked what the pretty winged, flying fairy wants to do with a bunch of old teeth and my response was pretty simple, we all have our things, I said. Some people collect bottle caps, others collect teeth. She of course wanted to take it a step further and ask why she's scared to come into her bedroom at night unless she sleeping. The conversation went as follows:
Natalie: I want to see the tooth fairy
Me: You can't see her
Me: ummm beeecccaaaauuusssseee........she's scared of people, she won't come if people are awake
Natalie: oh, can I just leave her a note that says I'm nice
Me: Yea sure, we can try that
Natalie: orrrr maybe she's actually scared of you mom
Me: mayybeee I didn't even think of that
Natalie: I think she's scared of boobs....yea, she's scared of boobs is what it is
That could kind of almost be a children's book, she's so creative!
