In any case, the tooth fairy came last last night - giving her a 5 spot for the first tooth, and a buck for the second. When she woke up, she came running in telling us to look at what the tooth fairy left. It was a genuine moment - a moment of pure joy and wonder that a tooth fairy could actually exist, and dole out greenbacks for teeth. Who funds this tooth fairy operation anyways? What would a tooth fairy do with little tiny teeth and do they need a receipt for reimbursement?
In any case, as she was headed downstairs for breakfast this morning, I overheard her tell her younger sister that the tooth fairy came and can you believe it, left her a 5 and a 1 dollar bill. I asked her how much that was and she paused, counted to herself and said "MOMMY! The tooth fairy left me 6 dollars!"
I'm amazed at the wonder, joy and unconditional belief that there actually exists a tooth fairy. It's beautiful.
