The Latest Volley In The Tooth Fairy Game

So at bedtime last night Cora asked Maddie to come into her room after books had been read for some “help on a little note”.

Yep, Cora wrote a note back to the tooth fairy.

Here’s what I read when I sneaked in to read it last night:

Dear tooth fairy,

Today we lost my kitten’s tooth and my mom found it. My kitten’s name is Satin. Satin is very playful and it wou8ld please me and Satin very much if I received a toy that Satin could play with instead of my feet. Whenever I get cold I put my feet under the covers only to wake up in the morning and find my feet with scratches on them.


p.s. Did you print your recent letter?

Do you see what my child did there? Who would deny a sweet kitten a little toy, especially when that toy would keep the sweet little kitten from tearing up the darling child’s tender toesies? And is I did deny said child the toy, she will end up SHIVERING AND COLD at night, afraid to use her blanket lest it make her toes an alluring child.

In other words, I’d be depriving my child of basic shelter.

Oh, she’s good. She’s very good.

It’s on.
