This morning while Aubrey and Emma were eating breakfast Aubrey asked, “Momma, is the tooth fairy real?”
I paused. “Honey, the tooth fairy is like Santa Claus. We just pretend because it’s fun, but it’s not real.” (Click here to read why I tell my children Santa is pretend.)
“But Momma, the kids at school think Santa is real.”
“That’s okay, Aubrey. Santa was real, but Mommy and Daddy just think at Christmas time it’s more important for us to think about Jesus.”
“Oh,” she said as she took a big bite of Cheerios.
“Momma,” Emma piped in, “is Jesus still a baby?”
Aubrey began laughing hysterically, “Oh Emma! He is bigger than you think!!”
