You know it's bad when you can't afford to be the tooth fairy.
Caleb keeps losing teeth and I don't have a dime! Just today he lost another tooth. Then he put it in a little paper cup filled with a little water (the tooth fairy pays more for clean teeth) and set the darn thing right next to the sink in the kitchen. So guess what I did when it was time to tidy up in the kitchen? Yep, looked at that little paper cup and knew it needed to be thrown away. I dumped the water down the kitchen drain and threw out the cup. Then I started to rinse the dishes in the sink but the sink was plugged so I ran the disposal!
You can imagine how Caleb felt when he came in, so excited and asked me where I put the little cup with his tooth in it.
So how do you fix that you wonder? You write a note to the tooth fairy explaining that you put your tooth in a cup cept your mom cleaned the kitchen and threw the cup away and don't forget the p.s. part.....the tooth was extra clean!
Anyway- a small part of me was so excited because then I wouldn't have to figure out where to find a buck. What ever happened to $.25 for a tooth? It's Geoff's fault. All his fault. He's the one who started handing out dollar bills for teeth. Well so now I have to make up for this whole thing and make it really good. Maybe I'll just stick my credit card under his pillow.
Come on guys- add your "you know it's bad when....". I'd love to hear it. Come on! There's got to be something better than mine.
