hook line and sinker


He bought it! We were at the dinner table and I told son # 1 that while I was dusting I found something in the living room and he should go look...(puhlease, like I dust, but he didn't find that hard to believe---which is most likely why, at eight, he still believes in the tooth fairy. I did get an eye-roll from hubby though). He came, bouncing,skipping, running back into the kitchen and showed us the note and the 2$ (and, by the way, what's the deal with THAT? I got quarters). He read the note, which I wrote with my left hand so he wouldn't recognize the handwriting, and felt so relieved. Hubby even said, "Come to think of it, I did hear Hannah bark" and I said, "We should leave a note for the tooth fairy the next time she comes and tell her that Hannah is a nice dog and won't bite".


Potential future psychiatrist couch moment diverted...whew.





Thanks Hannah, you really helped us out of a jam!

I don't even do the fairy dust, you are so good. I'm just lucky if the child doesn't lose the money under his pillow.

Good job on the revisit though!!

Hahahaha! Kids are so easy to please. We were just reminiscing about that silly game "Heads Up Seven Up" that elementary students play tonight in CNA class. What a dumb game, to an adult, but to a kid it is a great treat!

Yeah, inflation must be hurting the Tooth Fairy! I think it was only a buck when I was losing 'em! Oh, that reminds me of a post I wrote awhile back. June 17, called "Tales From a Mouth Breather."

Fairy dust?? You are killing me over here. I was totally with you on this post until you mentioned the fairy dust, now I have to call my therapist.

Nice recovery! $2 is a fortune! But probably the going rate these days, huh?

I got quarters too.... but I was born in 1978. I think I got screwed out of COLAs... The price of being the youngest child I suppose. That, and being the only kid in the 80s who looked like she stepped out of the Partridge Family's hand-me-down closet. (Seriously, I am wearing a belted jump-suit in my pre-school class pictures...) Poor me...
