“MY TOOTH IS LOOSE!!!” Logan yelled, running up to me with his fingers in his wide-open mouth pushing his tooth forwards and back.
“Well it’s about time! That looks like it’s gonna fall out in a couple of days.” I turned back to preparing dinner, exhausted from working all day.
“I’m gonna get TWENTY dollars!”
I froze. “Twenty dollars?!?”
“Yeah, when Alex lost his tooth, he put it under the pillow and the tooth fairy gave him twenty dollars!”
“I think Alex may have a different tooth fairy than you.”
But, there we were two days later putting a twenty dollar bill under a six year old’s pillow. We were young and we felt guilty. Compare that to a few weeks ago, when Abby lost her first tooth…
“I LOST A TOOTH!!”
“Awww, while I was gone??” I whined.
“Yep, it just fell out! Now I’m gonna put it under the pillow for Tootheetina! She’ll probably bring me something.”
“Yeah, like a quarter.” I stated matter-of-factly.
“Or a hundred dollars!”
Tootheetina (from Pinkalicious for those of you with boys) left her two dollars and a note. Three teeth later, Tootheetina is re-thinking the note business. 😀
My friend says her tooth fairy leaves little toys instead of money, and I like that idea too. What does the tooth fairy bring at your house?
