Higher Goals

Corey has his first loose tooth. It's on the bottom and he wiggles it constantly.

The four of us parents often joked that when his first tooth came out he might try and milk us with the tooth fairy visiting both houses to leave money for him.

He's with us this weekend and we were told to make sure that if the tooth fell out, we had to save it first for show-n-tell. (Gross.)

Still, I thought it might be prudent to prepare for the financial requirements if the tooth fell out at our house. I asked Larry what teeth were going for these days.

"I don't know. Let's just ask him. His friends have most likely lost teeth already."

We called Corey over. "Hey buddy. What do you want the tooth fairy to bring you when your tooth falls out?"

He thought for a moment.


This is totally not my child.

"Dude, why would you want tomatoes for your tooth?"

"This past summer the squirrel came and took all my mom's tomatoes from her garden."

(Long pause)

"OK, Beefsteaks or Early Girls?"

When I worked in the bank (way before I had the girls), I started saving up Susan B. Anthony dollars specifically for my future babies' tooth fairy payouts. When the Sacagawea dollar came out, I started collecting those for Beanie - Punkin' Pie gets the Sue B. dollars...

Mama says that's so cute. I say you should give the kid a buck and a BLT.

Like Mrs. Chili, my son gets the sacagaweas. Just one. :-) I used to have a stash of those coins, now I have a stash of teeth. I'm not really sure what to do with them. :-) I've given a couple to his mom. Any ideas?
