Overheards- The Candy Fairy

Scene:  TD, my mother and I are riding in the car on the way home from running errands. 

TD:  "Mommy, do we still have that church chocolate bar?"

Me:  "Erm, nooo. That's all gone."  I know full well that my mother ate it the other day while TD was allegedly napping.  We have a whole bag full of them in the pantry too. I just forgot to replace it.  Alright! You got me. I was hoping she would forget all about that chocolate bar from Sunday. The kid does not need more candy after the Pixie Stick rampage she went on at Saturday's birthday party.

TD: "Where did it go?  Who ate it?" 

Me:  "The Candy Fairy ate it."  My mother stifles a laugh.

TD:  "Mommy, the Candy Fairy?" 

Me:  "Yes, the Candy Fairy. She comes into our home sometimes and eats our candy.  She works with the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy."

TD:  "Mommy, I think you are making that up."

Sigh. Already. She hasn't even lost a tooth and she has already decided that that Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy do not exist.
