The Jig is Up

Sunday Evening:
Savanah- Mom, I lost my first molar!
Me- Awesome! Let’s see.
S- What should I do with it?
Me- Put it under your pillow for the Tooth Fairy.
S- OK.

 Monday Evening:
S-Mom, the Tooth Fairy forgot my tooth.
Me- Well maybe she was just backed up and busy from the weekend. Leave it there, maybe she will come tonight.

Tuesday Evening:
S- The Tooth Fairy forgot my tooth again.
Me- Really? She must be really busy. (inside my head-‘Crap!’)
S- Mom…..You are the Tooth Fairy……and you’re Santa Claus.
Long awkward look passes between us.
Me- I don’t know what you’re talking about. That’s craziness!
S- (Eye Roll)

Wednesday Evening:
S- Mom, just take the tooth. You don’t have to pay me.
