Tooth Fairy or Fairy Godmother?

My son is an intelligent boy. He noticed that I’ve been working beyond my normal work schedule for a few months now. Before, my work usually ends at 5pm. He knows that because that’s his time to use our laptop. Now, I work until 8pm on most days.

A few days ago after I finished my work (my full-time work, that is) and my writing assignment about Honda Rancher 420, I sat with my son in front of the TV and he asked me, “Mommy, why do you have to work until late everyday”?

“So we’ll have money to buy the things that we need.”

“Don’t worry, Mommy! The tooth fairy will give you money so you won’t have to work.”

“Wow! Really, baby”?

“Yes!”

In my mind, I was thinking: “How many teeth do I have to lose so the tooth fairy can give us all the money that we need”? Besides, aren’t tooth fairies for kids only?

“Perhaps, you meant the “fairy godmother,” baby, and not the tooth fairy.”

He didn’t seem to hear what I just said, so I see no point in discussing the subject further.

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
