After losing his second tooth in the middle of Michael's bead aisle, Nick was anxious to get home.
So he could go to bed. At 4:00pm. So the Tooth Fairy could come and bring him money.
I convinced him that the Tooth Fairy wouldn't come until everyone was asleep anyway, so he might as well stay up until bed time. He reluctantly conceded. And now, he's snuggled up in bed, "Cuddly Dino" in his arms and his tooth in a little baggy under his pillow. With one eye open, no doubt.
Delaney is so excited at the thought of A! FAIRY! IN! HER! HOUSE! that she probably will also sleep with one eye open. (I feel a little bad lying to her.)
Tonight, I'm going to have to call on all those sneaking around skills that I perfected in high school. Nick has already stopped kissing me at the bus stop. I don't want to kill the fairy for him as well. He's already growing up too fast. He will be six a week from tomorrow. SIX! Where has the time gone? And where was I?
Where is the Turn Back Time Fairy when I need her?
