I am the most shameless tooth fairy ever. I also am not very stealthy. I’ve therefore given up trying to dupe my son into believing in the tooth fairy. Today his tooth was so loose that he looked like the 8 year old boy version of Nanny McPhee. In fact we were calling him Nanny McPhee for the better part of the morning when we were out to breakfast. He was so inspired by the nickname he decided that he needed to go home and watch it.
Well, when I tell you that I am the most shameless tooth fairy ever, what I mean to tell you is that I am a tooth fairy that stoops to bribery. I couldn’t stand to look at that dangly snaggletooth any longer and bribed the child to let me pull the tooth out once and for all. He is not a big fan of having his teeth pulled though so I had to go a little higher in the dollar department than I had hoped to go. But I just couldn’t look at that thing any longer. Anyone who knows me knows that I can’t stand it when pictures are crooked on the wall. Last year some friends of ours housesat for us and as a joke had all of the pictures hanging crooked upon our return. This tooth was like a crooked picture shining forth its white beaming light at me every time I looked at my child’s otherwise lovely smile. It was torture, I tell you… TORTURE!
But alas, bribery works wonders.
That’s what I’m talkin’ about! I feel much better. And that gaping hole is one of the cutest things ever, I do declare!
Well, it’s right up there with this anyways…
