One of my daughters is gaining all her teeth and the other is losing them. Blake is the only child with a full mouth of teeth and he is not too happy about it.
Skyler is my “Words of Affirmation” child. She is forever writing little cards and notes to us and her friends. I find notes stuck in my bible, she adds notes to Blake’s lunch box, daddy receives them on his desk and even Tori gets little pictures. It is quite sweet. If the notes are reciprocated it goes a looooong way! This is how Skyler receives and gives love, she feels valued and special when verbally praised.
She even leaves notes for the tooth fairy….a new addition from my childhood memories of the never seen, tooth stealing, money giving, winged lady. Yesterday’s lost tooth was left by the side of Sky’s bed in a plastic baggie, on a pillow with the following note:
“Thank you for all the money you have left me for the teeth I have lost. And please don’t forget to leave money this time. Thank you!” Skyler
I thought the 20 rand the magical lady (that is a nice way to think about myself, a magical lady…you never know what is up my sleeve..hee) left would be a welcomed wake up surprise but Skyler was a bit perturbed that the tooth fairy did not take the time to write her back. As if I don’t wear enough hats now I have to be a note writing tooth fairy.
Do you think I can put that on my résumé?
