The Gig Is Up

I knew the day was coming, in fact I suspected it was already here but it was being kept hush hush. It came out today. Drew told me there was no Easter Bunny. He also told me there was no Santa. He was also standing right in front of Aiden when he told me this revelation of his. Luckily Aiden was half asleep on the couch and wasn't processing anything Drew was talking about. I wasn't sure how to respond to it all especially since I had to be really careful of how and what I said about it in front of Aiden. I was kind of speechless actually. He went on his merry way, working on things for the Easter party he's throwing for us later in the week. He came back in later with a big grin on his face and repeated it to me. Since Aiden was gone, I asked him why he thought that. He told me that he went snooping around at Christmas time and found the Magnetix iCoaster in the spare bedroom closet. Damn, I had some suspicions that he saw that back then but Todd and I had a good white lie to cover that up if he said something. (Todd's mom had bought that for him too) He never said anything though. I thought I could explain it away when he said he also saw Noah's Magicarp (a pokemon figure) and Aiden's Planet Heroes. I was screwed, I had nothing. I asked him if he was disappointed and he said no. I then asked him to please not say a word about it in front of Aiden and Noah. In some ways, it will be nice because he often shops with me and it's a pain when I find xmas/easter things and can't buy them because he's with me. At the same time, it's just another sign of him growing up and losing some of that childhood innocence. So does this mean he doesn't believe in the Tooth Fairy too?? We'll see what he says about that next time he loses a tooth! :)

So Sad...for you and for Drew. Some of the magic of childhood seems to disappear with these beliefs. I have to give it to Cody though, he still wants me to go on having my fun doing things on behalf of the Easter Bunny and Santa. I still once an awhile remind my boys not to 'blab' in family settings with little kids around, though I do not think they once 'spilled the [jelly]beans to a younger child.

I know this has to be very sad. I'm surprised it took him as long as it did as he's such a smart, logical little dude. He's so sweet I'm sure he'll have no problem keeping the secret (& helping the grown ups out) from his little bros & cousins!

But Woo Hoo on the Wii win!!!!

Bummer. I know my kids have been hearing the skeptics at school, but so far they choose to still believe.
