It's All Magical

We recently watched the movie about the book the Spiderwick Chronicles. One of the special features on the DVD is a recording of the auther or producer telling the viewers that the whole story is real. Their proof is that after putting the story out they got a letter from a family of three kids describing that the very same magical thing happened to them. I've mentioned our saying before--"Well, that pretty much proves it."

Isaac and I were talking this morning and he was reminding me that this whole story is true. We are both reading the Spiderwick Chronicles right now. He was trying to convince me that it was all true. "Mom, someone said it happened to them. So it is true. They said it."

I said, "I've seen a pig fly. No, really. I've seen a pig fly. There, I said it. It must be true."

Matter-of-factly Isaac said, "Mom, how does Santa bring our presents and fly through the sky? What about the tooth fairy? Think about the Easter bunny. He delivers the eggs. We've never seen it but we know it's true. People have told us about it and we believe them. It's all magical. Spiderwick is magical, too."

End of discussion. What more could I say? That pretty much proves it. It must be true.
