Shaun Is Starting To Realize

One day this week Shaun lost a tooth that he has been messing with for weeks.  He came running downstairs to show up his new hole in his sort of pearly whites and to show us the bloody tooth.  He asked if he should put it in his tooth box.  Yes, he has a tooth box that we made somewhere as a craft a while back instead of putting it under his pillow.  If you ask me I would rather have a bloody tooth in a box instead of under his pillow, LOL.

 Here is the conversation that took place about his tooth:

 Me – Shaun, you going to put that in your tooth box

 Shaun – Yes

 Me – Who is going to come to leave you money for your tooth tonight

 Shaun – You know

 Me – No, who

 Shaun – You know

 Me – Ok, go put it in your box

 After he walked away I asked Melinda if she thought Shaun still believed in the tooth fairy.  I wasn’t 100% sure but I was leaning more towards the side of him not believing since he hangs out with older kids in the neighborhood.

So that night I put $2 (Melinda wanted to only give $1) in the box in exchange for the tooth.  The next day I asked Shaun if he got money for his tooth and here is the conversation:

 Me – Shaun did you get any money for your tooth

 Shaun – Yes

 Me – How much

 Shaun – I think $2 (then he mumbled a lot of other stuff, LOL)

 Me – So who left you the money

 Shaun – You know

 Me – The toothfairy

 Shaun – No, fairies are for girls

 Me – So who left you money then

 Shaun – You

 Me – Do you believe in the tooth fairy

 Shaun – NO

Busted.  My little boy is growing up and starting to realize certain things just aren’t real.  We told him not to say anything to Shae as she still believes in the tooth fairy. I am assuming she does but not 100% sure since she has never lost a tooth. 

At least he still believes in Santa I think unless the boys in the neighborhood told him we were Santa.  Guess we will find out next month!

In a way this is sad because my boy is growing up and isn’t my little baby anymore.
