Hmmmm…. it has been a while since I posted.  I think that’s an indication of and result of the craziness that is life with three young kids.

Fiona lost her a tooth for the 2nd time yesterday.  She actually has one or two adult teeth coming in too.  She put the tooth under her pillow last night.  Fortunately, the tooth fairy remembered to visit even though he was out until about 1am and was tired and the tooth fairy’s spouse (who is keeper of the fairy presents) was sound asleep.  Fiona reports that the Fairy left her a little velvet bag containing:

  • a bicentennial quarter
  • a Virginia quarter
  • a new penny with Lincoln sitting on a log on the obverse
  • a canadian penny
  • a wheat penny
  • 2 gold statue of liberty dollar coins

The tooth fairy’s spouse (really more of a tooth co-fairy) had the fantastic idea of leaving Fiona special coins and trinkets instead of a set amount of money.  This works great for Fiona because treasures excite her much more than money.  Also, it keeps us out of the whole “How much money does the tooth fairy give at your house?” debate.

Word on the street is that the fairies set aside an Indiana quarter last night because the know that Brendan will be very excited to get a coin with a race car on it when it’s his time.
