alert: bad mommy
so y'all know about the lost tooth from yesterday.
here's the rest of the story (i feel like paul harvey now).
h came straight in the door and put the tooth beneath his pillow. we proceeded with our usual afterschool routines: snack, play, homework, dinner, bath. it was a little late when h went to bed, and even later when i finally got s to bed, and since i had already drunk my alloted 1 glass of cheap cabernet and t was out, i decided to just hit the hay myself.
but i forgot about the tooth.
this morning after getting dressed, h excitedy flipped his pillow, and what did he find??? his rotten old tooth. i felt like i had "bad mommy" tattooed on my forehead. what a failure i am! i could see that he was upset, and i was just kicking myself, so i suggested emailing the tooth fairy to make sure she knew about the tooth.
she wrote back... this very sensitive note:
I am sorry that I didn't leave your money under your pillow last night. It was a very busy night and by the time I got to your house, I had run out of money! I will go to the ATM, and I promise you'll be first on my list tonight.
You are a very good boy, and I'm excited to get that tooth from you!
The Tooth Fairy
that's nice and all, but i will be kicking myself for the rest of my life.
