Advanced Parenting

Miniwether and Mambowether just showed up at our bedroom door hours past their bedtime. Turns out Miniwether had been playing with another loose tooth and it came out. She wanted to immediately put it in a ziploc baggy and stick it under her pillow for the tooth fairy. I explained that the tooth fairy had already logged her flight plan for the evening and couldn't change her schedule. Tomorrow night would be the soonest she can come. The girls thought that was reasonable and handed the tooth over to me. I put it in a baggy and stuck it to the fridge with a magnet.

Tomorrow morning I think Miniwether is going to find the tooth gone, 50 cents in the baggy, and a note from the tooth fairy saying how she was already in the neighborhood so she picked up this tooth, too.

Adventure! Excitement! Not Going To Get Caught Again!

Perhaps if I just tell the boys that from now on the TF visits baggies on the fridge we can bypass all this night-stalking behavior. Beanstalk has lost THREE teeth in the last two weeks!
