Princess Nagger’s bottom front tooth has been loose since before Christmas. We were still searching for the Tooth Fairy back in January, and I’m happy to report that her tooth finally came out on Monday. She had been hoping against hope that she would lose it at school because her teacher had special little treasure chests for lost teeth, and Princess Nagger had her eye on the red one:
She was all excited that she would finally be able to use this ultra cool and very special Tooth Fairy tray that Mango Girl had made special just for her:
She kept speculating on how much money the Tooth Fairy would be leaving her – I told her it would be somewhere between $1.00 or $5.00. She was hoping for $5.00. She said one of the kids in her class got $85.00 for his tooth – $85.00?!! I told her there was no way the Tooth Fairy left anyone $85.00 for a tooth, that maybe he got 85-cents. Otherwise I’d be tempted to yank out some of my teeth for that!
She suggested that the Tooth Fairy could leave the paper money on the tray itself, then put change in the little tooth holder part. She thought two-cents would be a good idea. I laughed because I knew that my reference of the Tooth Fairy giving PN her two-cents probably went over her head. So I decided to give her a bonus in the form of a golden dollar coin just to make her day:
She was tickled pink with what the Tooth Fairy left her, and took great pleasure in chortling that I was wrong about how much the Tooth Fairy would leave, because there was the extra dollar. I better make sure I have another five-dollar bill and golden dollar on hand so when she finally loses the loose top tooth I’ll be ready. Apparently I’ve set a precedence. But definitely not an $85.00 one.
