Tooth Fairy

Today is one of those “bad mom” days. Ethan had reminded me to be sure to leave a little something under his pillow last night, and I completely forgot. I figured I’d try again tonight, but in the meantime I’ve been very busy at the computer, telling the kids to get their own cereal, and mothering entirely by ear. That’s how I heard this conversation:

“Okay. Can I open my eyes yet?”

“Not yet…. not yet… okay… now! Go check under your pillow. I think there’s something from the tooth fairy!”

[He goes, checks]

“Hey, thanks Mary!”

“What!? What makes you think I am the tooth fairy?”

“Well, you made it a little obvious.”
