Tooth Fairy....

...so Erin woke up this morning...but didn't look under her pillow. Aaron asked her if the tooth fairy brought her anything, and she said no. I get the death stare, but yell "check under her pillow!!" To which I get "shut up!" Sheesh! Anyway, he takes her to look under her pillow, and she exclaims "Wow! A Jesus coin!" I never noticed the similarities between the Statue of Liberty (which is on the reverse of the coin) or John Quincey Adams (who is on the face of the coin) and Jesus, but there you have it. Statue of Liberty I buy.... but not J.Q. Adams. By the way, the tooth was found on the back of the toilet downstairs. Was before Erin found it, so it will totally be like magic when she discovers it empty. I told her that the Tooth Fairy would know that she lost her tooth. And she did. So there.

...Another funny Chez Byers this morning.... Aaron went to the grocery this morning and bought Toaster Strudels. The twins both wanted one, so in the toaster they go. The toaster pops up and I put the things on their plates. I go to get the scissors for the packets of icing, only to find that they've both gotten the packets open on their own. When I expressed my suprise, Griffin said "We're big stuff!" Totally my phrase.

The tooth fairy traditionally leaves the money under the pillow, DUH to Aaron who was probably the one who yelled at you.

At maria's house the kids leave their teeth in a glass of water and when they find their coins they are in the water and the tooth fairy has left behind some of their favorite color in the water and a tiny bit of glitter. That's how they know the fairy is real, I guess. Her youngest daughter drank the glass of water! Maria almost died...The girl said "I drank the water, now I have some of the tooth fairy's power!"
