The tooth fairy needed to pay a visit to the Worley's this week. Maddy came home Monday missing a tooth.
This was somewhat of a surprise as we did not, or should I say, I did not know the tooth was loose. I know you're thinking that this is not surprising, but when I say I micromanage everything-I mean there is no stone unturned in our house.
She enjoyed a carmel apple sucker during lunch and in the process launched the tooth from its resting place in her gums.
Well, at 2 am I awoke to Koda whining. Time for a potty stop. I made my way downstairs to let him out. After taking care of business, I headed back upstairs anxious to go back to sleep.
As I tried to nestle back into sleep, I began dreaming that all my teeth were falling out. Common dream. Can't explain it. I just suffer through it.
Anyway, I sat straight up in bed realizing that Paul and I had both forgotten the duty of the Tooth Fairy. I frantically woke Paul up and sent him off to complete the delivery of the dinero.
30 seconds later he's back.
"Um, yeah she's awake."
"What do you mean she's awake."
"I mean, 'Hi, Daddy' she's awake."
"No she's not, sometimes she seems awake but she isn't. Try again."
30 seconds later.
"Yeah she's awake."
I proceed to take care of it because obviously this calls for mom. So off I go to cover up any chance that we have blown our cover. And honestly to see for myself because I am sure to some extent Paul is, well, inaccurate. She is absolutely asleep. I'm sure of it.
"Honey, what's wrong, daddy said that you're awake."
"I don't know mommy, but it's a good thing I am."
"Why is that?"
"Because Daddy's trying to steal my money!"
