Mary Grace just lost another tooth, and it reminded me of something I've been meaning to tell you all.
We give her a dollar coin every time she loses a tooth, but some kids get $20s (I'm guessing these are the parents who stop at the ATM on the way home from work!) and others get toys. She noticed the disparity, and do you know what I told her? I said that every family has their own Tooth Fairy - just like every neighborhood has their own mail carrier - and some Tooth Fairies are more liberal than others.
I might have also mumbled something about how those other kids may or may not be able to go to college after their parents have spent all their money buying baby teeth... but she didn't hear that part. Heh heh!
So if you have a stingy Tooth Fairy like we do, feel free to explain it thusly when your kids notice.
