And we had a problem. No MONEY! Ahhhhh! Quite an issue. I mean, we had a $20, but seriously. The cheap tooth fairy visits my house and she ain't handin' out $20s unless that tooth has gold in it. And is the size of a kiwi. The kid stuck that tooth in his little pillow and tucked it lovingly under his bed. And woke up with it in the same spot the next morning. Because the fairy hadn't come.
So, she did the next day. And she paid him, with interest. (That's 5 bucks, but only because it was his first, and she'd screwed up royally by forgetting him that first night.)
And then, he went and lost another damn tooth. Like 2-3 days later. And then, that damn lazy fairy, well, she completely forgot to pay him. As in, she had the money, but just went to bed. Sleep whore.
So, again, it took 2 nights for the kid to get his money. This time it was only a dollar. What? I told you she's a cheap fairy.
Funny enough, I don't remember what happened with the 3rd tooth. Which must mean that crazy winged chic finally got her stuff together.
And, then, he lost another last night. I was at work and came home to a note, telling me the fairy needed a loan to pay the kid. But, uh, all I had was a $20. And he still wasn't gettin' that. I managed to find a half dollar in my wallet (no idea where that came from) and a couple of quarters, which would have to suffice.
So, the fairy snuck stealthily into the kid's room...and couldn't find the damn pillow! And then he woke up. While she was standing right there with his money in her hand. So she was all, "come on, baby, lets go pee in the toilet". Fortunately he obliged her and did so. She ran back in to the bedroom and did the old switch-a-roo, monies for tooth. She then tucked him back in and hoped he was none the wiser.
Fortunately, he seems happy with his loot. Shew. And he looks kinda funny without those 2 front teeth.
Today's Lesson: This fairy stuff is complicated. And potentially expensive.
