Visit From the Tooth Fairy

Typically, the elusive Ms. Tooth Fairy leaves money in exchange for teeth under pillows.  Growing up, myself, I remember Ms. Tooth Fairy having her own money tree that grew with abundance.  Miracle Grow, she must've given the dang thing, because I remember at least one instance in which I received a big, fat twenty dollar bill under my little princess head.  I do, however, remember going through a lot of pain at the dentist office for that sucker.  A molar with a root about a foot long.  You think I'm kidding?  It was double the length of the tooth itself, but I digress...

Tonight, we discover that Ms. Tooth Fairy's Money Tree o' Abundance is missing.  We think that Congress took it.  In it's place, she's forced to offer an IOU.

And the inside...the coupon! Think it will suffice?  :)  Now, if only the snaggle-toothed boy will go to sleep.  His nosy brother, too.  Ms. Tooth Fairy is dead tired and wishes nothing more than to flap her tiny little wings into bed.

Busted by my own daughter!! So, where DID you learn to clip coupons? Are you really my daughter? Jesus, I'm laughing so hard I'm crying. You don't get your baby teeth back - they're mine. Paid for. and mounted on a 18K gold charm bracelet. I really do love you even if you're not my daughter. MOM
