The lost, lost tooth
Addie lost her tooth on the soccer field last week. I promised her I would watch it for her during the remainder of her game. Then she was playing in the basement with her brothers. Lo and behold, she lost the tooth. She was devastated. But, we constructed a letter that invited the tooth fairy to leave a gift even in the absence of a tooth; I guess it's like casting an absentee ballot. Luckily for her, it worked and a dollar bill was found under her pillow the following morning.
