3 Simple Ways to Handle the Truth About Santa

The secret came out. It happened during a summer evening, in the quiet before bedtime. My daughter was six years old and full of thoughts and questions.

Is the tooth fairy real?” She asked in a low whisper, almost afraid some unseen character might hear her. 

I replied with a question of my own. What do you think?”

As our conversation went on, she asked another question. Then where does my tooth go and how does money get under my pillow?” 

While embarrassed, I admitted that her dad and I tossed her fallen teeth into the trash (except the first one—I’m no monster). She was fine with this information, and processed another question.

“Then… the Easter Bunny is not real either, right?” 

This time, I couldn’t hold in a chuckle. “Really, an overgrown bunny? No, he’s not real.”

Satisfied—for the moment—she went to sleep.
