I am quite sure that PandaGirl is feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the information overload she has experienced within a few days. The last two posts are relevant to this post. She has had to process big revelations in her little life and now....
***She lost her 8th tooth yesterday. Awesome!!!
***She put it under her pillow like the previous seven teeth so that the wonderful Tooth Fairy could leave money or a surprise.
***She came into our bedroom this morning like every morning, got on the bed where I was sitting and said in an upbeat tone,
"Guess what the Tooth Fairy left me?"
and she held out her little hand as she was saying---with really quite a hilarious perturbed tone and slightly annoyed look on her face---
The cat had my tongue, because I couldn't believe I had forgotten and stunned that my kid was actually on to me! I wanted to ROTF&LMBO, but I held back as best I could and only let out a nervous giggle which prompted,
"Mo-uhm, it's NOT FUHHH-NNY!"
"Ummm.....ummm.....well, ummm....." "HONEY, come help me please!!!" as I called to PP to come take some heat with me and to not miss this great moment.
PP caved immediately and looked at PG sheepishly and revealed the whole ugly truth and proceeded to hand her two golden dollar coins.
However, on the 7th lost tooth two months ago, PG tried to pinpoint my actual dealings with the "Tooth Fairy" and asked if it was me. I never told it wasn't me, but I also did a really good job of skimming right over the question and moving on to a new subject. For the most part she was totally fine this morning and we made a big fun time out of it. We also told her that she COULD NOT let on to her friends that their parents do the same thing and we don't want to spoil the fun for them.
(We'll just stick to spoiling all the fun for our own kid! lol.)
So, not only did she find out this week that she was in another woman's tummy & her beloved birth country isn't all it's cracked up to be, but to pour salt all over the wound she finds out that the Tooth Fairy is her parents! AHHHHHH!
I guess I'll be using the cute Tooth Fairy stickers on a scrapbook page in a different fashion than I originally envisioned. Now, I will reveal the whole truth and nothing but the truth about my own failure as the TF. ; )
No worries---PG still has her fun giggles!
