Drew lost a tooth the other day. It's a bottom side tooth that isn't real photogenic. Since my blog posts aren't any good without pictures, I'll use this picture from last spring. There are several teeth missing to go with my "story".

Anyway, back to the story. Drew lost a tooth. I wasn't even home. The first I heard of it was at 4am when Drew was yelling that he couldn't sleep. I went in there to figure out what was going on. He was talking about the tooth fairy and how she hadn't been there yet, and how that surprised him and the rambling went on and on.

Whew...as much as I don't like being woken up at 4am, it was nice to be given the opportunity to shoot the tooth fairy a quick reminder.

The tooth fairy apparently got the reminder because Drew was a happy camper the next morning with a new $1 to his name.

Then, we had an interesting conversation...

Drew: "Mom, I saw the tooth fairy last night."

Me: "huh?"

Drew: "Yeah, she wasn't at all what I had imagined."

Me: "Uuuuhhh....why not?"

Drew: "Wey'lllll, she was BIG....like human sized! And, she didn't even have any wings!!!"

Me: "Huh."

Drew: "Yeah."

That was the whole conversation. No further questions, no connection of the dots. Too funny for a smart little guy.
