Little Girl's Note Breaks The News About The 'Tooth Fairy'


This brave girl decided that it was time to come clean and break the news to her mum and dad - she doesn't believe in the Tooth Fairy. Or Santa Claus. And she knows it was dad hiding the Easter eggs. Doesn't it feel good to get it all off your chest?

And, like any considerate nine-year-old, Lexi chose to convey the bad news in the form of a hilarious note informing mum and dad that their well-meaning attempts at deception are not longer welcome.

Reddit user 'willsanderson' found the note on his daughter's pillow and shared it to the site. Written in painstakingly neat pencil handwriting, it reads:

Dear "Tooth Fairy",
I don't belive in the tooth fairy anymore. I know it's you who gets the money and puts it under my pillow, mom and dad. I'm sorry if this is hard for you, but I'm 9 now. I don't belive in Santa either."

Lexi's thoughtful note may attempt to soften the blow for her parents, but there's no getting around the fact that she's nine now and she knows what's up - as exemplified by the cynical use of air quotes around the 'Tooth Fairy'.

And Lexi has one final gut-punch for her father, who she presumably imagines to be devastated by this point, in the form of a brutal closing 'P.S'.

"Daddy, I knew it was you last easter hiding my easter eggs."
