Yesterday, our youngest kid lost her final baby tooth. So I thought I'd do a brief recap of the Tooth Fairy at our house.
Back when she was 5 or so, one of Joey's classmates told her than he'd seen the Tooth Fairy and that she was super tiny.
So after losing her next tooth, Joey found, under her pillow, a teenie tiny note about the size of a postage stamp written (with an incredibly sharp pencil) on a regular sized piece of paper. She was enthralled with it. And carried it around with her for almost a week, reading it over and over.
Here's the close up...
And last night, almost 6 years later, when I pulled that original note out of storage to scan for this post, Joey sighed, "Ohhhh, I loved that."
Originally the Tooth Fairy brought money and received ambitious requests like this.
But after we'd established that the Tooth Fairy was indeed a wee little thing, it only made sense that what she'd bring in exchange for teeth would be tiny as well.
So she started bringing things like this.
Here's what the Tooth Fairy left one night when Joey lost a tooth while she was spending the night at Aurora's house. In case you couldn't tell, that's a tooth in there for scale. ;)

Is it just me or does that last bit seem vaguely threatening? At least it didn't mention anything about pliers. Which reminds me of this, the best costume ever. If you don't have kids, that is. Or if you don't mind your kids sleeping in your bed for the rest of their lives because they've been so traumatized.
