The Tooth Fairy

Look at this:

10 weeks-86

Notice something? Maybe that tiny little gap at the bottom of her pretty smile?

She lost a tooth.

I am not sure I have seen her so excited or proud. She is one of the last (if not the last) in her class to lose a tooth and she thought it would never happen. But yesterday, I got a call from Danny saying, “Maria wants to tell you something.” And she burst into the phone with a, “Mama!! I pulled out my tooth in art class!!” It was true, she did. And they put it in a little napkin so it wouldn’t get lost and then at Vacation Bible School, she took it out of the napkin and it fell and it took several vbs students and 2 teachers to try and locate it, which they did.

And last night, she put it under her pillow inside a special pillow that Lala got for her, hoping the tooth fairy would come and take it.

The tooth fairy did not disappoint.

10 weeks-90

The tooth fairy wrote Maria a note. The tooth fairy also forgot that Maria has a hard time reading cursive, so 1/2 way through the first word, she switched to printing. The tooth fairy also thinks more than $.25 for a tooth just makes kids greedy, so the tooth fairy gave her a quarter. A magical quarter from the tooth fairy kingdom which, very few people and children know, is much more valuable and special than a $1 bill. The tooth fairy also may have forgotten to save a $1 bill and may have given it out as a tip to the Starbucks barista on Monday.

Luckily, Maria loves it.
