Last night Megan was complaining that her loose tooth was bugging her, so I tried to pull it out. I got my shortish fingernail under the edge and pulled. I even twisted a little bit. I pulled till her eyes got big and she said, "OW!" And then I decided that it wasn't ready yet.
Today Megan wanted to call her friend Scottlynn to play. Because I had Den Meeting and physical therapy this afternoon, I said she could go to Scottlynn's house if that was okay with her mom (Miss Amidey).
I should have known better than to send my loose-toothed child into the Den of the Evil Tooth Pulling Queen. By the time I got home from doing my duty in the Church, I found these pictures on Amidey's blog:
That Woman did it again! And My Child let it happen! A pox on them both! Okay I guess I'll let Megan off the hook because she's underage and didn't know better and I have taught her so very well to obey her Elders. Or is that Elderly? Well, people with gray hair anyway.
So later this evening Megan came to show me the tooth in a ziploc sandwich baggie. "Mom, since I know you are the Tooth Fairy and since you always forget for three days, can I just put this tooth on your dresser and get my dollar out of your coin jar?"
So ya had to spoil that little ritual too, huh, ETPQ? I think I'll send Megan over to your house to collect her tooth bounty from now on!
