THANK YOU everyone for emails and comments. I really appreciate this. I am trying to say that you are not alone, and people are saying, you are not alone either, right back. So thanks for that.
Franny came back with more than stories. She also came back sans toof. She lost her first top tooth a couple of weeks ago, and hot on the heels of that was her other top front tooth, at her dad’s house.
I was disturbed by how big of a window it left. It just felt naked somehow.
There, that’s better. Curtains make naked windows cheerier, don’t you think?
Franny lost her tooth to the “tooth fairy” at her dad’s. Here she keeps them in a special treasure box. I believe that children should keep their body parts so they can choose to sell them on ebay when they get broke and famous.
“How much did the tooth fairy leave you?” I asked.
“A dollar,” she said.
“Did you wake up when your dad came in?”
“How did you like the tooth fairy experience?” I asked.
Franny thought for a moment. “Well, everyone said it was going to be pretty exciting, but it was really not that exciting.”
“I’m sorry,” I said.
“Do you want to go out for ice cream this week to celebrate?”
“YEAH!” she said.
