The tooth fairy left me moonshine
And that mission was...
To dispel the truth about the Tooth Fairy.
You see, craft night is normally attended by ADULTS. But somehow, some of these women feel the desperate need to bring their grade school children to these events. Now, mind you, the normal conversations that I have with my friends as my alter ego are not ones that would be brought up at the church craft night. But, I would like to freely discuss the Tooth Fairy, moonshine, and Robin's ex-boyfriend.
Last night, I went ahead with my plan....
and received many looks from across the table as I discussed how the MIL version of the TF decided that it was a good idea to leave the Queen a pack of gum for a tooth. The promotion of tooth decay at its finest, I must say.
And there is a third grader who rarely leaves the company of her mother, standing right next to me. Thankfully, her father had her engaged in a good conversation, and I am most positive that she didn't catch on because I didn't outright say "The Tooth Fairy is a fallacy, and all children need to learn that."
The moonshine and ex-boyfriend conversations ... yeah. Probably not ones to be had at church, either.
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
