Tooth Fairy Makes a Midnight Run for Cash
Day and night, night and day, she wiggled and wiggled and wiggled that tooth.
And last night, when we least expected it, she worked up the courage to yank that baby right out!
Here she is yesterday morning with all of her baby teeth intact. Just look at those freckles! She calls them "angel kisses" and she's in love with them.
At our house, the tooth fairy pays $5.00 for the first tooth lost.
Rumor has it that the Tooth Fairy had no cash in his wallet to purchase the tooth with. He hit up Mrs. Tooth Fairy, but she never has cash either. So at 11:30pm, he got in the truck and drove to the grocery store to get some money. By the time he flew over to the house, our princess was fast asleep, and he made the trade under the pillow.
This morning, when I woke my baby for church, she jolted up and immediately tossed her pillow to the side to see if the Tooth Fairy came to visit. She woke the whole house up with her proclamation, "I've got five bucks!" Then she showed everyone at church who would take the time to look into her mouth.
Today, my girl has a pocket full of money, and gap in her teeth to stick her tongue through. Life just doesn't get much sweeter for a girl who's getting ready to turn six.
