I don't know about your house but here the tooth fairy pays for dental assisted evacuations of teeth. She might even pay a little bit more than the average tooth for pain and suffering. So the tooth fairy made her fourth appearance at the Palizzi house last night. In exchange for a moldy molar, Julian got $5.
Gabriel, who's been down with a fever all week, woke up SO excited.
"Mommy, I SAW the tooth fairy!!"
"Oh..." I gulped, "You did?"
"Yes! She was beautiful. She had a crown and it went like this." He said as he made zigzag lines with his fingers. "She had a purple dress on and it had sparkles. And she was happy."
Swoon, dude. Swoon.
Today, after a month in preschool, he cried at school. His beloved Miss Ann made the grave mistake of giving Owen a big triangle on an orange piece of paper and not purple. He cried and said he wanted his mom. For a boy that refuses to hug or kiss me before leaving, I have to admit it made me a little happy.
