Her Tooth

Snow White has lost another tooth. And can you believe it? The tooth fairy forgot to come AGAIN?! Why do we have this seeming inability to get this simple task right? Someone is going to revoke our parenting license over this eventually, I just know it.

As usual, we tell them that the tooth fairy definitely came. She just forgot to take the tooth with her. We tell them to go check again. By this time there is now money hidden somewhere near the pillow or maybe inside the pillowcase so that we can claim they just overlooked it the first time they searched. Do you think God forgives those kinds of fibs when we get to heaven? She'll be too old to believe in the tooth fairy soon. I just can't bear to break it to her yet that the tooth fairy is just an imperfect parent who loves her.
