Good morning, and boy do I have a cute story for you all today!
I’d like you to meet my sister Alli and her family.
Don’t they look like a nice bunch of folks?
Well, I’ll tell you something.
Last week Alli was feeling
The cause of the frustration?
A little ol’ tooth. You know the kind.
The kind that are stubborn.
The kind that need to be pulled right out of their home
so that big grown up teeth can fill the space.
The kind of teeth that live right here in this pretty little mouth!
Well, this pretty little mouth kept
saying things to her mother like…..
Please don’t pull it out.
It hurts too bad, Mom!
Don’t make me do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would rather clean the toilets for 10 years than pull out this tooth!!
(okay, I made that last one up. Couldn’t help it.)
Alli had heard these dramatic statements one too many times….
Did she get angry?
Did she curse?
What kind of mother would curse! Certainly not me!
Did she get out a string and tie one end to the tooth and the other end to the back door?
The girl is much more clever than that!
She simply said….
“You know dear. I just heard that the tooth fairy is running a special. All kids that leave a tooth under their pillow tonight will receive FIVE DOLLARS instead of the usual one dollar.
But there is a trick.
The special is for one night only.”
“Hmmmmmm……” said the pretty mouth with the loose tooth.
And then the pretty mouth and the girl bounded off
After a whole 15 seconds of consideration
the pretty mouth
“Hey Mom! I pulled out my tooth!!!”
“Really!” said the wise mother.
“Who would have guessed!”
