"Uh, um..., I was hoping to make a couple extra bucks," was all I could come up with. I know I've posted about the whole Tooth Fairy thing. As a parent, we each get to choose how we want to handle this one. We do the Tooth Fairy thing.
She was appalled that I would even consider swiping her tooth just to make a couple extra bucks. She then gave me the "How could you!" look accompanied with the, "I'm in the money$$" look, and walked off with the bagging letting me know she was going to place it under the pillow.
She then proceeded to tell the boys and my dear husband how wrong I was to partake in such underhanded schemes. "Ugh! Mom!"
I was caught red-handed. What to do?
Carry on, business as usual I guess.
She placed the tooth under her pillow again last night.
This morning she walked down the stairs swinging the baggie commenting, "She didn't come."
I then looked over at my husband. He had fallen down on the job last night, obviously. His look to me was, "What?"
I know I'm so wrong, but I said to her, "Well honey, since you didn't actually lose that tooth last night, you're on the back-logged file. She has to get fresh teeth first. Don't worry, she'll come."
On the way to the gym this morning my hub and I were having a conversation about the whole tooth thing. He then says, "Why do I have to double-pay? I already paid. I don't want to double-pay."
He will double pay. It's the right thing to do. Or maybe I will double pay. One way or another someone will be paying. Good thing I didn't let her clean out my underwear drawer.
