the tooth fairy...

my eldest lost his last baby tooth the other day...i still can't believe he is growing up so fast...he is such a kind and generous kid...at the indian party i got such a compliment...one girl visits my other friend quite regularly,them being family and all...and we were chatting about kids and she said that she's met this utterly uber cool boy visiting with my friend's son a few times...and she was going on about him having such a gentle spirit and how he had such good manners and how she was so impressed with him...and it turned out she was talking about son...how cool is that!...wow...i was blown away...i was so proud....anyway, so my cool boy lost his last baby tooth...and him being the sweet kid that he is when his little brother brought him his shoe to put the tooth in, he played along and made a big hooha about putting the shoe out where the tooth fairy was sure to find it...to his brother's delight...he's figured out the whole tooth fairy and santa clause deal long ago...unfortunately...but obviously still enjoy the benefits too...but having a little brother and lots of little cousins he plays along never giving them any hint...so i saw he was writing a note and putting it into his shoe...when they went to sleep...i quickly got the cash to put in the shoe...cause it has happened before that the darn tooth fairy forgot to put money in the shoe...unforgivable i know but it has only happened once...and his note read
..."tooth fairy: you can't afford to put money in my shoe...so 50c will do just fine..."
can you believe it...it broke my heart...so i gave him extra for that last beautiful baby tooth...just to show him that the tooth fairy can still afford it...he mustn't worry about that...just for his last baby tooth...then left him a message....
"thank you sweet child for giving me such beautiful teeth over the years...i still have every single one of them...and will treasure them always...i will miss being your tooth fairy so very much...always look after your adult chompers ok?...i love you so much...your tooth fairy..."

that child...he breaks my heart sometimes...it's the end of an era...

oh that is SO sweeeeet!
my darling damien put ALL his teeth in his slipper- and wrote letters to santa till he was 13 (coz he knows his mommy gets a kick out of it)- and still hunts easter eggs and decorates his granny's christmas tree with his cousins (coz its a family thing we do)!
