She Really Does Exist

By five o'clock this morning both girls were awake and harassing me.  Yaya was telling me that the tooth fairy left her a dollar, and she must be real because "you and Daddy were sleeping, and it wasn't me, and Sarah is a only a baby."

When I finally dragged myself out of bed at 7:15 because breakfast had to be made, I asked Yaya to be quiet this morning because I was exhausted as she, Bumble, and the tooth fairy had all woken me up during the night.

"What? You saw the tooth fairy?"

"Yes, she woke me up to tell me that you had candy wrappers under your pillow, and she doesn't want to see any sign of candy next time because she needs perfect teeth.  If she finds candy wrappers next time, she won't leave you a dollar."

"Will she leave me a blob?"


"She won't leave anything?"

"That's right."

"What did she look like?  What color was her hair?  What color were her dress and wings?  Did she have a wand?  What did it look like?"

"Her hair was blond.  Her dress and wings were white.  I was tired and didn't see a wand."

"Did she say your name or tap your shoulder?"

"I don't remember.  She just woke me up."

"Wow!  She really is real.  I didn't know that she really existed!"
