The tooth fairy left me moonshine

Last night, I attended our church's craft night. It is a monthly get together where the women haul out their luggage of scrapbook items, and drag it all into church, only to use about 20 percent of it. Normally I knit, but last night I was on a mission.

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 wish I had the moonshine kind of tooth fairy. Then again gum would be pretty cool.

HA!I'd love a church group where you're a member. Maybe I should join.

Thanks for your comment on my post today. I've been reading a lot of homeschooler blogs and would love to read the one you mentioned. If you find it, please let me know.

Thanks!

Why is it some moms bring their kids to stuff like that? It just changes everything about the event. I say leave 'em at home or don't come! Grrrr I learned that the hard way years ago when a participant started talking about female stuff right in front of my 4 year old -- who later had lots of questions that wouldn't have popped up without the blatent story this woman told! Next time and ever after I went ALONE or I didn't go.

P.S. I think most sensible children know there isn't some little fairy coming through their window at night, look for their tooth that fell out that day...oh, and leaves some loose change. Maybe I was a very pragmatic child, but I didn't believe it from the beginning. I think many times kids just "play along" because it's fun, don't you?
