So are kids.
I just tucked my son in, and as I was shutting the door- he reminded me that, "I'm sure hoping the tooth fairy will come tonight."
This is the same son who set up a mouse trap and stuck his tooth inside of it- hoping to once and for all trap the TOOTH FAIRY.
No wonder she's missed coming the last 2 nights. Probably forgot out of sheer terror because of that one horrific episode.
(For your information...the Tooth Fairy managed to extract the tooth from the trap- without snapping it- and also left a kind note behind begging him to never do that again. How she managed, (or why she even bothered!!!!) to lay the money in the trap without setting the thing off, still makes me shake my head.)
There's a small blizzard playing out side my window tonight.
I managed to walk in it all before it really started acting up....and found everything wearing a new Winters coat.
My baby spruce trees last week ~ Now dressed for winter
Proof that color can be found if you look hard enough
And my Thinking Bench feeling a bit neglected
And my Butterfly Houses I should have taken down.
I always thought I would have one more nice Fall day to do it...
I guess I pushed my luck.
The sound of the wind and knowing how cold it is outside, makes me realize once again how blessed I am to have a warm home and a bed with a feather quilt, apple cider to drink by the mug-fulls,
and a fire to sit beside while I drink it.
I am not taking anything of this for granted.
Now I need to go brave a different type of storm.
That of the Tooth Fairy.
Wish me luck.
(I don't THINK he has any sort of plan to capture her tonight.)
If there is no post tomorrow, you can assume the Tooth Fairy may have met her demise.....
