The Power of Belief
Nate lost another tooth yesterday (the sixth?) and as he and Juliana were getting ready for bed I heard them discussing the tooth fairy.
Juliana: "I heard the tooth fairy doesn't always come through a window!"
Nate: "Really? How does she come into the house then?"
Juliana: "She has magical powers Nate, she can even come through your wall!"
Nate: "Maybe she makes herself a tiny door in the wall where she can come in and out of your room!"
And that settled it. As Nate slept last night, the tooth fairy (and her helpers) built a tiny door and hung it on Nate's wall. This morning, he awoke to find it, along with some silver dollars and a trail of glitter left by the tooth fairy.
It was perfect.
I'm dreading the day when they'll lose that ability to believe that anything is possible, but for now, I'll just relish in the pure beauty that they still do believe.
