Little R lost a tooth today. Her friend got a toy from the tooth fairy last time she lost a tooth. Little R has decided that she would like the tooth fairy to leave a toy for her now. Not in a pushy, annoying child way. But a cute, sweet, "Do you think the tooth fairy will leave me a toy for my tooth? She left a toy for "friend". It's all she's been talking about this evening. She's even gone so far as to write a nice letter to the tooth fairy and leaving it under her pillow asking if she could have a toy instead of money.
I have some new books that I bought for her and put away for Easter. I could slip one of those under her pillow. It only cost $.84 so technically it would save me $.16 as opposed to the dollar she usually gets. Not sure if she'll consider a book a toy though.
Hmmm... Money or Book.
Everyone should know the tooth fairy leaves either a toothbrush, which is no fun, or money. Quit mixing it all up for the rest of us parents!
Oh... and while I'm complaining. Why does she always lose a tooth when Mr. R is at work. I'm tired. I don't need the stress of having to stay up late and sneak an icky tooth from under her pillow. It's so nerve racking.
