Tale of a Tooth

Eric woke me with exciting news this morning.  “Stephen lost his tooth!”

I raced downstairs to admire Stephen’s new gap.

“How did you lose it?”

“Well, I was chasing Adrian around pretending to bite him.  And then…um…something happened and it came out!”

“Uh-huh.  Something like you biting Adrian?”

“Um…I don’t know.  Something.  But anyway, then I stopped and looked for the tooth!  I found it.  I was amazed by how small it was!”

“Amazing!  It is small!”


“I’m going to tell my teacher at school!  This is going to be the best day ever!  My friend J down the street got $5 for his tooth from the tooth fairy.”

“I don’t think our tooth fairy gives that much, since we have 4 kids.  She can’t afford that.”

“Well, A got $5 dollars yesterday for his tooth, too.  So he has the same tooth fairy as J!  I hope that fairy comes to our house.  She’s the best one.”

When the Vogan Tooth Fairy stops by tonight, she’ll be leaving him $1 and a pack of gum.
