When did you stop with the tooth fairy? how old is too old to believe?
Ss10 lost another tooth yesterday. He still believes in all the mythical holiday things (santa, Easter bunny, tooth fairy) so I slipped $2 under his pillow. Dh mentioned to me that he thinks SS is too old and that he should be told. While I agree that he is really old to still believe and not be questioning it..... I feel bad just ripping the illusion away, and question is he really TOO old? Or just on the older side.
I've thought for the past like 3 or 4 Xmases that 'this is the last one for Santa', but both SS and sd9 show no signs of questioning it. I figured it out and came to my parents about Santa when I was 6. I can't help but feel that they have to be the last kids in their class to still buy into this stuff.
Did your kids stop believing on their own, or did you have to break it to them at some point? I would still get them a 'santa gift' each year, and they'd still get an Easter basket, but I would drop the tooth fairy routine once they know.
How old is too old?
