So many of you asked about the Tooth Fairy so here's the shizzle. The Tooth Fairy did come. Of course.
But, there is a funny story there. Well, I think it's funny. It's funny to me. But I have had a couple of White Russians this evening, so we'll see if the humor carries beyond the bizarre arena known as my brain.
After Sonny-Bunny went to sleep, Tooth Fairy and her assistant had a discussion (debate) over what was the appropriate price for the tooth. Tooth Fairy, in her infinite wisdom and elephant-like memory, stated that the previous two teeth (wrought from two separate painful accidents) had brought $5 each. Therefore, TF thought it only proper to maintain that as current retail value. Her assistant however, thought that $1 would be more appropriate. TF won the argument, as she always does, and $5 was properly traded for said tooth.
The next morning, when Sonny-Bunny awakens for school, I say "Let' s see what the Tooth Fairy brought". To which he said (with a great big smile), "I bet it's a dollar." (Yes. "A" dollar. As in one.) When he sees the $5, he is screaming, "Mommy, you have to see this! You have to see what kind of dollar it is! It has a five, Mommy! It's a five dollar!" He was over the moon.
So it seems that the going rate is $1 and the assistant was right. Maybe someone should share that info with the big TF. Maybe a night before would have been even better. Alas.
