Has the tooth fairy been to your house?
We just lost our sixth tooth. Sixth tooth for a six year old girl. Four missing at the same time!
When she lost her first tooth I told her I would make her a tooth fairy pillow. I haven't made it yet. So far she has been decorating envelopes and putting them under her pillow. I better get on that...
I woke up yesterday morning at 4:30am (the night before she had lost one of the front teeth).
The first thought through my head was "Oh s#$%, the tooth fairy!"
I raced to find my wallet...empty
Then, I remembered the laundry room.
I'm not great at checking pockets when things go into the wash. I don't usually find the things that were in them (things like crayons, chapstick, matchbox cars, money) until I hear it clunking in the dryer (I'm pretty good at getting out stains by the way).
Anyway, the money ends up on a little shelf beside the dryer.
The tooth fairy usually leaves a toonie at our house. That night she left 3 quarters, 7 nickels, and 9 dimes. Yep, all under the pillow. Our tooth fairy is talented.
That morning, the first thing I hear is "Mom, mom, MOM!! Just look at all of the money the tooth fairy left me! She has never left me this many coins before!"
So, of course I remarked at the number of coins. What was the tooth fairy thinking? Very, very strange.
"And Mom, just look how shiny they are! She must have shined them up just for me!"
