Ready or Not ... There it Goes

Not to be outdone by her sister, Sheridan lost her tooth on Monday night. After the Seder. When she was WAY overtired and needed to just go...to...sleep.

Instead, in pure Sheridan fashion, she was fooling around on the step stool in the bathroom, and in the craziest, most unbelievable story, somehow managed to open up her mouth while Matt was washing her face. And the washcloth caught her tooth. Though Matt didn't have any idea. Because, before she even began to cry, Matt saw the blood. Blood that wouldn't stop flowing out of her mouth.

So he quickly took inventory, saw that it was her tooth, and frantically began searching for it. He was afraid she swallowed it. It took a few minutes, but they eventually found her little chicklet tooth on the floor. Under the step stool. By the sink.

And once she surveyed the damage, she was quickly informed by her older sister that she needed to buck up, because the tooth fairy pays top Rupee for the second tooth.

Sheridan sat down at the kitchen table and wrote her note to the tooth fairy. By herself. Boy was she proud.

And rich. Apparently, "T.F." (as she's affectionately known) slipped Rs. 150 (about $3) under her pillow sometime during the night. Though I have on good authority that she will pay a heck of a lot more when Sheridan finally loses those top snaggle tooth and black tooth.

Come to think of it ... where I can get a few extra Rupees. Anyone know what a balding, graying 39 year old is going for these days?

Sheridan's note to T.F. says..
"This is my second tooth. When my dad was washing my face
I was opening my mouth it fell out. Love, Sheridan"
