I remember when my son lost his first tooth. He swallowed the tooth – which made for a little pickle when I tried to figure out how we were going to do the whole “tooth fairy” thing!
Daddy wrote a note to the tooth fairy explaining the situation and – good news – the tooth fairy did indeed show up! But not without my husband and I first having a discussion about the going rate for a tooth these days. My husband suggested a high price – I on the other hand tend to be cheap, so I threw out a low bid and we ended up in the middle.
Considering the cost…do you realize how much these kids have cost us? I’m not even talking about money here – I’m talking about time and energy!
Before I had my first child, I thought the hard part was going to be the pregnancy and delivery. Boy, was I wrong! First it was my nursing struggles but now the hardest part for me is taking the time and energy to train my children to do what is right.
