The Tooth Fairy. Again.

Well, it's official. As parents, we now run the range from "pay for preschool" right up through "pay for orthodontist." Thank goodness we still have a few years before "pay for college" starts.

Shay is having his last two baby teeth extracted this weekend in preparation for braces. The teeth refuse to come out on their own. How much does the tooth fairy give for teeth that have been forcibly removed, anyway? It seems to me that one should get a little extra for that, even if one no longer believes in the tooth fairy.

And in related news, Kyra lost her first baby tooth today! And then promptly lost it again. It's somewhere in the house, but we don't know where. No matter: the tooth fairy will pay a visit regardless. I'm just not sure how to explain it when she eventually finds the tooth in a sock drawer or something. Any experienced tooth fairies out there want to weigh in?

The tooth fairy is very clumsy--and forgetful. Sometimes it takes her (him?) three days to make it to our house, and then usually after the kid already got out of bed.

Oh, just put it under your pillow tonight, honey, and the Tooth Fairy will collect it. I know she's been wondering where it is!

(Check the couch cushions, under the edge of the rug, and the soap dish.)

Please. Write your own stuff.
