Tooth Fairy

Emma lost another tooth yesterday (second one this week). Last night she decided to write a note to the Tooth Fairy to remind her that she had a tooth waiting to be exchanged with some cash. The note idea didn't just come out of nowhere, it is a necessity because the Tooth Fairy is constantly forgetting to come pick up teeth....I suspect it's mainly because she rarely carries cash and kid's don't take credit cards.

Emma decided to be very specific as to what she expected out of this visit. She isn't taking any chances. She wants $3 and 3 dimes. I have no idea why she needs this exact amount, but that is the amount she asked for. And she made me write it so that the Tooth Fairy would very clearly understand what she wants.

Aaron response to this is "what happened to getting a quarter"? Ahhh how times have changed. But, Emma being the Daddy's Girl she is, of course, will get $3 and 3 dimes under her pillow tonight.

Cute story!

I did an author school assembly the other day, and told the assembled k-4th graders that the tooth fairy ONLY deals in quarters, because she's got to make her life simple -- and that if the kids found something else under their pillows, it's because of their parents. "Some parents," I said, "just can't help getting involved." HAAA!

I've had a lot of parents thank me for helping to keep down their tooth budgets. ;-)
