The Tooth Fairy is busted as daughter's letter goes viral

It’s the moment parents dread: when our kids prematurely figure out when some childhood magic isn’t real.  Redditor willsanderson posted a photo of the note his 9-year-old daughter Lexi left on her pillow where exi informs her parents that “I know it’s you who gets the money and puts it under my pillow.” She then […]
