All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth

K.J. lost one of his front teeth.
Daddy had to help him get it out -- he used the old floss stand-by. And it worked like a charm! I can't really handle loose teeth. I don't know what it is, they just make me feel squeaky inside. Thank heavens for Dad's!
With the loss of this tooth, it signified something very important:
Another adventure for the tooth fairy.
I'm not quite sure what it is about the tooth fairy visiting our house, but for reasons yet unknown, the little midget has a really hard time fulfilling the fairy end of the bargain. I went right to bed without remembering about the impending visit, but the Double B woke me up at 4:30 as he was leaving for work because K.J. had woken up and was a little panicked because the tooth fairy hadn't come yet. I was thankful for the wake up notice. But then K.J. came and climbed in bed with me and tossed and turned as his little mind worried over another fairy oversight like last time (in which the tooth fairy forgot to come altogether). So I couldn't get up and investigate, you see. So I prayed really hard that I would wake up in time to check the tooth fairies progress before morning, and lo and behold, I woke up at 5:15. I got up to see if the fairy had visited, and I am not sure, but it looked like my whole house had been searched from top to bottom in pursuit of a dollar bill, but all the tooth fairy could come up with was a FIVE DOLLAR BILL. I mean, yes, front teeth should be more valuable then the run-of-the-mill tooth, but FIVE DOLLARS? I decided the tooth fairy must have given such a large sum to help K.J. prepare for the Christmas holidays... he does have a few presents to buy yet. That was the only peace I could find over such an overpayment. When my little boy woke up, he was thrilled to find his "bill" and was very, very interested to know who that president on it was (it's Abraham Lincoln, in case you are wondering). Little did he realize he'd been payed four times the legal limit of tooth fairy dispersion in our household!
I think the tooth fairy needs some serious help. I don't want to be rude, but it's true.

The toothfairy is very forgetful at visiting our house too, Elizabeth will be sure to tell you! Maybe we should sit down and have a chat with her.:) KJ is a lucky duck! All that patience pays off.:)

Once a little girl at our house got two $1 bills because the tooth fairy slipped a $1 under the pillow but forgot she had slipped in that $1 previously so she (or he?) slipped another $1 in.

The tooth fairy must have too much on their fairy plate.
