Theo has finally gotten to an age where he understands and enjoys us hyping up holidays. Dustin and I have always taken the stance that it is harmless and fun to allow our kids to believe in things like the tooth fairy (though he hasn't had an opportunity to be introduced to her yet), the Easter bunny, and all of their friends. I am pretty sure that they won't feel betrayed by us when they find out all of their mythical holiday comrades don't actually exist. Since Dustin was never brought up to believe in Santa, the Easter Bunny and the like and I was, I think we can see both sides of the spectrum. We both turned out more or less balanced, I suppose, but I like the idea of allowing children to think that the world they live in is much more magical and fantastic than it really is. They will learn the truth soon enough.
