I’m A Fairy

#1 lost his first tooth today, right before bedtime.  If he’s not the last kid in his class to do so, he’s close; he’s been waiting for this day for months.

I still remember the long-ago excitement of checking under my pillow for what the tooth fairy left behind.  Back then it was a quarter.

I don’t know who’s more excited to wake up tomorrow morning, he or I.

  1. Reminds me of the story from This American Life http://www.thislife.org/pages/descriptions/01/188.html wherein the narrator concludes that her friend\’s dad is the tooth fairy.

    We give the kids $0.50 pieces. All struck in the year they were born.We were in Vegas about 5 or 6 years ago and we spent about an hour amusing one of the casino cashiers by cashing in $100 in fifty cent pieces, running through them looking for 1992 and 1994 pieces and cashing the remainders in for more fifty cent pieces.We recently ran out of 1992\’s but that\’s ok because my son doesn\’t believe the tooth fairy exists any more so he doesn\’t get any more money 🙂
