Ramblings: Tooth Fairy

So after being sad that he was one of the last ones in his class to start losing teeth, Alex has finally started losing a couple. The first one was of course, dangling by a thread because he was afraid it was going to hurt. Then one night, he swallowed it while sleeping. He wasn't too devastated, just so excited he finally had a hole in his teeth to stick his tongue through.

A couple of days after that, another tooth became loose and fell out. This time he was very motivated to remember the Tooth Fairy. We had him put it in an envelope and then we suggested he write a letter to the T.F. to see if she might also leave a little cash for the tooth he had swallowed. We also told him that it might be a good idea to give her a good reason why she should do this...


He frantically scribbled this out while he was headed up to bed. (I promise his penmanship is usually better than this). The "2.00" was his suggested price/tooth. It's nice to know he at least thought about giving his T.F. money to the poor. And, yes, she did indeed leave him some $ for both teeth. But as far as I know, that money went to Dick's Sporting Goods for one "really cool" yo-yo. Hmm. Maybe the poor will benefit from his next T.F. visit.

That is too much! What a keepsake of a letter!

How did you post the letter? You will have to teach me that. I have an idea that it involves a scanner and I don't have one so never mind. Alex is a crack up as always. And he sure loves cash.

Yes, we have one of those all in one printer, fax, scanners. I just scanned it in and inserted it like a picture. He's definitely motivated by $--he's horrible to take to spend it though because he walks the aisles forever trying to decide on something.

Oh, come on! Poor people or a yo-yo. There is not even a question! I mean, there are important things. (Abby prefers to spend hers on junk - I mean really cool things - at the Dollar Tree. She's really into quantity. Who cares what it is!)
