I want to tell you what I found under Deep Sleepers bed a couple nights ago when I was the tooth fairy. But first let’s walk down memory lane a few steps. When I was little, I remember losing teeth. I remember going in the bathroom and pulling off a long stream of toilet paper and then wrapping the tooth up in a tight cocoon. I would place it under my pillow and wake the next morning, reaching under and pulling out the same wad of toilet paper, only instead of the tooth it was usually a few dimes. What? You only got pennies? HA! Loser.
But nowadays there are “special things” kids use. From pillows to stuff animals with a “tooth pocket”, to special bed side containers. Now don’t get me wrong, I think these are really cute and a great idea. But where’s the challenge? Every parent should have to experience the rush of shop lifting a tooth. Pure adrenaline people!
So no – I don’t see me spending 30 bucks on something like this. I’ll stick to the toilet paper roll, thank you.
And this brings me to why I started in on this whole tooth fairy saga. I learned that Deep Sleeper is a planner. And I was impressed. The other night when I was searching under his pillow for his tooth, I also felt something I didn’t expect. I pulled it out and saw this.
A zip lock baggy with some “example” coins thrown in
Does this mean he thinks the tooth fairy is stupid? That she needs a clue as to what is expected after she grabs the tooth? Did he put higher value coins in his bag so she would be pressured to at least match it? Yes he is a planner. And he is a business man. I like it.

P.S – I am going to an Alpaca convention for the next two days. Should be fun. See you on Monday.
