Seven and a half (childhood spoiler alert)

I found out from a first grade classmate's mother that this rugged boy of mine is done believing in the tooth fairy.  They were talking over Legos one day at indoor recess.  
We had a conversation, he and I.  
It's true.  
He's done--fine with moving on.  
Although it caught me off guard, I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the caboose of six children has been paying attention to details.  And listening.  Intently.  He's okay with it.  So am I.  Now we're all in the club.  And look at those teeth!  Besides the fact that they're mighty handsome, they're still the original set.  Not a wiggly one to be found.  YET.
Even though his perspective has changed, he still plans on sticking to the culture and making some money when those baby teeth finally do fall out.

So that's what Rogenny anger looks like.

I can't wait for some open spaces and then BIG teeth on #6.

I don't get it?!
What do you mean she's not real :-)

Oh, scary face! I'll bet he'll still enjoy receiving something in return for his lost tooth/teeth.

Jen! You're SO grown up. Had this been any other child, I think you might have cried...just a little.
