she lost her first tooth... (actually she has lost two, i am a little delayed in finally getting this post written)
that night when she went to bed she was quite excited for the tooth fairy to give her some dough. i had to go up to her room at one point to request she settle down to sleep.
her response: "mom, the tooth fairy STILL hasn't come!"
me: "well you need to actually go to sleep for her to come"
her: "i lay my head down like this (she demonstrates a most restful pose) and close my eyes, then i check under my pillow but she still isn't coming!"
me: "again, you have to fall asleep for real"
her: "ugh, i am just so excited"
when she lost her second tooth she heard (from a friend who has a more generous tooth fairy) that if she left the tooth in a glass in the kitchen she might get more money for it, so that is what she did. she did get a slight increase for that tooth. the ease of getting the tooth undetected was worth the extra coin ;)
