Where is my parenting manual?

The SLACKER tooth fairy failed to deliver yet again, so I had to do some quick thinking to appease Marinne when she asked why her tooth was still under her pillow. Then the same day, Blake asked if all children have the same color eyes as their parents and why kids look like the dad if they only come out of the mom. How do I give an age appropriate answer for that one? My lame answer apparently didn't cut it, because he continued to ask, "But HOW does that happen?". The kid is 6 and should stop thinking this deeply! If someone could please publish a quick reference answer book for questions like these, I would pay a pretty penny to buy it!

Blake is the deepest thinking kid I have ever seen - sometimes I wish I could see what's going on in his head.

I have totally forgotten the tooth fairy as well! Twice in fact, within 3 days of each other! As for Blake, good luck! I wouldn't know what to say & dread the day I have to "explain" things to my kids.
