When did the tooth fairy get so rich? I want to know. Maybe there is something I’m missing, or wasn’t told?
Jasmine recently lost her second tooth. This momentous event happened while Jasmine was spending the night at her Nana and Papa’s house. The next day, while unpacking her bags, I found a $20 bill in Jasmine’s backpack. I asked Jasmine “where did you get this money?” Jasmine quickly replied, “from the tooth fairy.”
Wait a second, I thought to myself. The tooth fairy is now leaving $20 bills? I was in shock, and suddenly, I saw dollar signs flashing before my eyes.
I don’t know if my mother-in-law realized the mistake she had made by leaving that much cash for a little old tooth. When Jasmine lost her first tooth, the tooth fairy left a modest 2 bucks under her pillow. Sean and I used to get a quarter, or sometimes, we might have received .40 cents, you know, if the tooth fairy was feeling generous.
Does Jasmine now expect a $20 bill every time she leaves a tooth under her pillow? If so, we’re going to be broke. But in all seriousness, it’s not happening. I refuse to give that much for a tooth. I think kids these days get way too much anyways. If the tooth fairy wants to leave a $20 bill when Jasmine sleeps at her Nana and Papa’s house that’s fine, but around here, the tooth fairy doesn’t have that kind of cash.
