Fairies

"Why did Jesus make the tooth fairy?" asks Topher. Oh boy, here I go treading the fine line between lying outright and lying to preserve innocence. "Jesus made the tooth fairy to help collect all of the teeth that little kids lose because he can't do it by himself". I love it when he mulls over and answer I have just given him. You can almost see the cogs turning behind his eyes. Then he asks me if the tooth fairy is a boy or a girl. Are there boy fairies? He shakes his head emphatically yes! Here is my chance to inject some feminism. "Well, Santa is a boy and I'm pretty sure the Easter Bunny is a boy, so I am going to say the tooth fairy is a girl". Okay, he is okay with that. But this morning I will say that there are boy fairies. I'm pretty sure there is an insomnia fairy and he visited me last night. Only boy fairies would be as industrious as to work in the wee hours of the morning. The girl fairies went to bed exhausted hours ago! :)
