Namine came scooting into my bedroom this morning. “Daddy Daddy Daddy! My loose tooth fell out here it is my loose tooth came out you have to come see!” She was just a little excited.


I had a feeling the loose tooth would come out soon. It was quite loose last night, and Namine kept playing with it. Tonight I think she’ll get a visit from the Tooth Fairy.

Of course Namine knows the Tooth Fairy isn’t real, just as she knows Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny aren’t real. (Teaching her otherwise, Jessica and I believe, would be to set her up for disappointment and a breakage of trust in us as she gets older.) She knows that we are the ones to give her a quarter for her tooth, but she likes to pretend.


Husband. Daddy. Programmer. Artist. I'm not an expert, I just play one in real life.
