My failure as a tooth fairy

Well, it's happened again. Naomi lost a tooth and carefully put it in an envelope under her pillow, and then, I promptly forgot about it. I'm the master of excuses for that slacker of tooth fairy...

"San Diego is a big city, and she can't get to everyone in one night!"

We'd long ago established that the Tooth Fairy is a local job (not like Santa who pulls off a world wide break-in in a single evening!). In Argentina, it was that tiny scamp, The Tooth Mouse...

"Oh he's just a little mouse, give it another try!"

Last night I took Naomi's tooth from the envelope and placed a dollar inside. The poor kid forgot to check, so I made her bed this morning around the little envelope and left it under her pillow. Hopefully she'll find it before the new tooth grows in!

We've entered into Round #3 in Small Press Idol! This is the first of our 4 page entry of "The People That Melt in The Rain"...

Oh, so funny. I could write a book on my failure as the tooth fairy! I have six children and I think I only succeeded on time with the first two. This week my youngest, who was so excited for the tooth fairy to come she pulled out her own, lost the first-tooth-ever. Wouldn't you know, I had to put an irate call into the tooth fairy's direct line to get that slacker to show up?

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
