What to do?
That's when the phone rang. It was my ten year old daughter, calling past her bedtime.
"Hi, Sweetie. What's going on?"
"Um...I lost my tooth and Daddy is asleep already."
"OK...you lost a tooth?"
It dawned on me a moment later. "You are worried that if you don't tell me that maybe the tooth fairy won't figure out that you lost a tooth tonight, huh?"
So tonight I will get home and need to make a special delivery to underneath my daughter's pillow.
Before we hung up, my daughter asked me what my puppet was for the day. I told her that I hadn't figured it out.
"Maybe it could be about my tooth?" she suggested. "Maybe you could even make a tooth fairy puppet!"
Of course, I can totally make a tooth fairy puppet. Thanks for the inspiration! So here we have it -- our sparkly tooth fairy.
Good night! I am heading home to figure out what the going rate is for a molar...
