Yesterday I volunteered in Dallas class at school and noticed a strange phenomenon going on amongst his peers. They all looked fairly normal until they opened their mouths, and that's when you saw it. Every single one of them looked like a toothless Hillbilly, or the kid on the cover of Mad magazine. I realized how grateful I am that you go through such an awkward stage of losing teeth when you are too young to care. In fact Hallie can't wait to lose her teeth because she thinks it's cool.
So Dallas recently lost another tooth and lucky for him the Tooth Fairy decided she'd better get back in his good graces so she put a little more effort into her offering. Dallas didn't get any old dollar bill this time, let alone one he'd seen before. I think she learned her lesson on that one. No this time the Tooth Fairy wanted to prove herself and left a Sacajawea golden dollar coin. I think the boy was a bit confused since he'd decided he didn't believe in her anymore, but let's just say this time there was some magic back in his eyes the morning after she appeared. That's how I like it, no more suspiciousness.
