Our tooth fairy got a bit bored last week waiting for Paige to fall asleep. The result was two $1 bills being folded into a chain. That went over pretty well. Then the tooth fairy got lazy with the second tooth of the week and just folded them in half. Paige said it looked like an alligator mouth. With the third lost tooth she was anxious to see what the tooth fairy would make.
Crap! Time to enlist the tooth fairy’s helper. Most people know him as Ryan. Ryan has also helped make the tooth-money exchange for us. He stays up late and Paige has been waking up to try to catch sight of the tooth fairy. He can wait her out better than we can. He’s also much better at origami than we are. He’s the one who started this with the money chain. I didn’t get a picture of that before Paige unfolded it to see how much money she got. I did get a picture of the latest though. Ryan made a flying bird (pull the tail and the wings flap) and a butterfly. He’s tapped out on origami, he broke out his dollar bill origami book to practice for the next tooth.
