Tooth Fairy Steals Money

So whenever one of my boys looses a tooth, my first thought is, "Crap, do I have any singles in my wallet?" This time, Lucas lost a tooth and I knew I didn't have any singles, or have 4 quaters to fake it with. How do I get change for a $10 bill at 8pm on a Tuesday night when my husband isn't home? I didn't get change. I took a single from Lucas' wallet, praying that in the morning he wouldn't count his money and notice he was a dollar short. (He didn't!) It's amazing how quickly I get over the guilt!

Oh my goodness, this is hilarious. I can't believe the tooth fairy gave your kid his own money. That is freakin awesome. I agree. 2 points.

Frauke, I give you a point from stealing from your son. Another for being unprepared. And yet another for posting this, so I don't have to post another story about urine. :)

+3

I'm going to knock spice girl's +3 down by -1 for paying it back. You're back to the totally awesome +2 and I am SO remembering this for next time so I don't have to dig dimes out of the overstuffed chairs!

Robbing Peter to pay Peter? Priceless. The federal government is calling, they'd like your help on some things...

I don't think Lucas' wallet has enough to bail out the government, but if he looses another tooth, I'm all set!
