National Tooth Fairy Day (Feb 28): The Tooth Hurts

Most of us remember losing a tooth in elementary school and being really hyped that we were going to make bank. I’m talking about the tooth fairy of course. The entity that parents told children about who takes your tooth in the middle of the night while you are asleep and leaves cash or other small trinkets (which was both creepy and enchanting all at the same time).

Recently, my six-year-old little sister lost two of her teeth at the same time. Well, one was really wiggly and the other was just starting to give so my mother just yanked that one out for my sister anyway (ouch!). My little sister was betrayed, but she was still super excited to put her teeth under her pillow.

The TOOTH HURTS

She decided to put one tooth under her pillow at a time for two nights instead of putting both teeth under her pillow at once. Her logic: “But what if the tooth fairy comes and two teeth are too heavy?” Can’t fight that logic. So she put her first tooth under her pillow and I think that she was so excited she passed out from enthusiasm and she was knocked out cold.

In the morning she woke up and shouted, “The tooth fairy came!” She pulled out a dollar from under her pillow and suddenly her excitement level dropped from a 10 to a solid 8. She said, “Aww, I only got a dollar.” And she made a pouty face. My parents jokingly told her that maybe she must have been hit by the recession. Obviously, that word was a little too advanced for my sister to grasp.

The next night the “tooth fairy” must have felt bad and so my little sister woke up and found a ten dollar bill in her pillowcase. She was like, “Wow, I’m so rich now!” Then she turned and asked my parents, “But wait, this time the tooth fairy put the money IN my pillow, what the–? Doesn’t it go under?” Obviously, we explained she had to make such a large sum of money safe and secure. My little sister closed her eyes, crossed her arms, and nodded approvingly, “True. True.”

Main Points

  • It doesn’t matter how old you are if the tooth fairy paid a visit, don’t burst a kid’s bubble.
  • That period of childhood wonder is so brief and children and adults alike should make it last while they can.
  1. Evaluate earnings
  2. Complain
  3. ???
  4. Profit (sometimes if you pout, it helps if you are a cute little munchkin)
  • My little sister is a champ, two teeth out and still standing.
  • She’s also super rich, maybe if I’m nice she could give me a loan some time
  • The tooth fairy’s not a lie, it’s an exaggerated tooth (I mean truth)

Something Old, Something New

Something old, some thing new. My boyfriend accidentally agreed for us to attend two events happening at the same time on the same day. Our options were to either celebrate an old marriage (50th anniversary) or a new marriage (Jack and Jill). We were the only couple brave enough to offend both parties and make an appearance at both. In other words, leaving a party early/showing up late at another). It all worked out though.

The first event was the Jack & Jill. My boyfriend joked about how he literally changed the diapers of the groom-to-be and how he was getting old. They gave away sugar eggs as party favors, held raffles with tons of cool prizes, and had a 50/50.

The anniversary party was at the couple’s house instead of a restaurant. They had old wedding photos hanging from balloons, they recreated their wedding party photos, and there were plenty of refreshments. There was a bar, cupcakes, chocolate fountain, candy, etc… Both events were beautiful and it is great to see how love can be celebrated with friends and family, old or new.

When you’re accidentally double-booked for events do you celebrate a new marriage or an old one? Something old or something new?
