I'm just kidding, my child is quite smart. However, I assumed that when she figured out that the tooth fairy was not real she would keep it to herself until she was out of teeth. LOL But after Church today she turned to me, and proving that she had been thinking of other things during service, said "So if Santa isn't real and the Easter bunny isn't real - does that mean that the Tooth Fairy isn't real either?"
I tried to get around this, I truly did. I himmed, hawed and tried to change the subject but Katie can be very persistent. When I finally couldn't take the pressure anymore I gave in and admitted the truth. Then she started to discuss how WE were giving her the silver dollars (or half dollars, I can't actually remember) and how when she lost her next tooth she would get ANOTHER one. I looked at her and said, "Not if you tell Daddy you know about the tooth fairy." She stopped dead in her tracks, looked at me and said, "Please don't tell him I know." There's my girl. That's what I thought was going to happen. LOL
So everyone - ssssshhhhhhhhhhhhh :D
