Our 7 year old daughter gets up from the couch after dinner last night and declares “I LOST ANOTHER TOOTH!”
It was actually kind of freaky, considering, we knew it was loose, but it literally fell out of her mouth when her tongue went against it! So she got a baggy to put it in, laid it under her pillow, and my husband confiscated it after he tucked her in. Brought it down, reached into his wallet and realized – no cash. “What am I going to give her?” he said to me.
“Why not quarters? She can count money now honey, she’ll know its the same amount.”
“Oh, ok!” So he took the baggy and went over to our ‘vacation jar’ and filled it with 8 quarters. Or so he thought.
She comes shuffling down the stairs with baggy in hand this morning while I’m on the phone with my mother, and she goes “It’s one-hundred-and-seventy-five!”
I looked puzzled. I took her baggy while talking to mom, and counted. 8 coins. As I counted, though, she says “the token doesn’t count, mom, it has ‘no cash value’.”
HAHA, hubby gave her a Chucke Cheese token! Slackin, I tell ya!!!
