(Forgive the lateness of this post, but we have been without internet for 4 days.)
Wednesday night Erin & I went to karate for her lesson. The lesson is 45 minutes long, & then we have a 15 minute leadership lesson. I usually sit with my friends Angie, Michelle & Barbara so we can chitchat. Class was going really well for all of our children. They were focused, paying attention & generally doing what they were supposed to be doing. I do admit to enjoying watching the lessons. I'm pretty darn proud of my girl.
The regular lesson ended on time, & the leadership class began. During one of their exercises, Sifu Helana had them at attention ready to move on. Erin raised her hand & when she was acknowledged said (plain as day) "Excuse me Sifu but I have to give this to my mama. My tooth just fell out." The look on Sifu Helana's face was priceless. She couldn't believe that Erin waited to be called on before saying anything & of course, how many people have teeth that just drop out of their mouths?
Erin ran over to hand me her teeny tiny bit of a tooth. When class was dismissed, Sifu had the entire class yell out "Congratulations Erin!" So cute!
Once we got home, Erin was reminded where she had to sleep in order to have a visit from the Tooth Fairy. She wasn't happy about it but followed through. Apparently, during karate, her friend Dakota told her that he saw the Tooth Fairy, & she has blue wings. WHAT!?!? I had to think quick for that one!
About an hour after bedtime, Erin went to David saying "It's not fair. It's not fair." She woke up long enough to ask me why Dakota got to see the Tooth Fairy. I explained that there are different Tooth Fairies for different areas & that they have different things they want. In our neighborhood I was told the Tooth Fairy doesn't visit children who are not in their bedrooms, & she certainly doesn't want to be seen!
Anyway, the Tooth Fairy has decided that she pays $2 per tooth after the first one. Whew!
