850. Tooth Fairy

The Tooth Fairy made an appearance at our house the other night.  She had planned in advance this time and gone to the bank to procure some fancy gold-colored Sacagawea coins.  Adults, of course, know that Sacagaweas are worth a dollar.  Our six-year-old, however, was not aware of this.  We heard him squeal from the next room: 

“One million dollars!  The Tooth Fairy left me a special gold coin that is worth one million dollars!” 
Uh-oh.  This might not go so well after all.    



  1. Love that he must be on top of the world about his treasure! Perhaps time to procure some foreign coins that are worth one-millionth of a dollar. It could prove just confusing enough, especially if they are shiny!

  2. What to do if you forget to put that coin under the pillow? "Oh no, we forgot to leave the window open; the tooth fairy could not get in." True story.

  3. So awesome! My boys would probably think those gold coins were pirate booty. Argh!

  4. And this is why we did $2 bills.
    Although there was one time when I was sick with e coli and hubby was away for work and the tooth fairy couldn't get in the house for almost a week. She made it up to her by giving her a note of apology and an electronic device.

  5. awwwwwwwww. . .that is hysterical and heart melting all at the same time!

  6. Whoops! I had a similar problem once with my youngest's teeth. Nothing smaller than a five and no coins except pennies. The tooth fairy set a new inflation rate I'm sure!


When you write a comment, it makes me feel like I won the lottery or at the very least like I ate an ice-cream sundae. (This has nothing to do with the fact that I did just eat an ice-cream sundae.)
