The Tooth Fairy Is A ThiefA Story by shweta
tooth is not the only thing this tooth fairy is taking away..
My five year old daughter was excited; she just lost her first tooth. It was loose for a week. She kept wiggling it, until it finally came out. What a scream! “My tooth came out. My tooth came out. I’ll look ugly for the rest of my life.”
“Oh darling you will not look ugly, a new better tooth will grow in to replace it.”
“Are you sure?”
“Can I stick the old one back in so I’ll be pretty until the new one grows in?”
“No that would be yucky”
“Then what am I going to do with it?”
“Put it under your pillow, of course.”
“Under my pillow?”
“Yes, under your pillow. Then, the Tooth Fairy will come and replace it with some money.”
“Oh goody, I like money. How much will she give me?”
“When I was a little girl, it was a dime, now I’m not sure but I think it might be a dollar or more. Now put the tooth under your pillow and go to sleep. OK?”
And as I stared at the tiny winged creature, she got off my purse and left a dollar under my little daughter's pillow.
