Ah, the Tooth Fairy. That magical fairy who comes to the house at night to take your teeth that have fallen out and in exchange, give you money! ( who came up with this idea anyway?? parents "pay" enough when those darn teeth are coming in the first time...and the fussy baby keeps us up all night!)
Tooth Fairy offerings have gone up since I was a kid. I think I got a quarter or two for teeth. Now its more like a dollar? I get the whole inflation argument...but just wish I was back on the recieving end of it again!
So yesterday Ella had to have her 4 bottom baby teeth pulled out, as the grown up teeth were already coming in...and the first ones there didn't want to leave. And according to T.F.rules...dentist pulled teeth are worth more?? ( really dentists?? Lets chat! :) ) So that was fine...until Rissa came running to me last nite showing me HER tooth that came out too. I had NO idea that she even HAD a loose tooth.
And of course, this all happened as the TF was experienceing an empty wallet that evening.
So I am expecting to see her at the bank today....I'll say hi!
And then kick her in the shins too.!
