Toothless in New York

This is too cute to keep to myself.

My five-year-old daughter Amanda lost her first tooth a few weeks ago. It was so loose that it came out while she was eating a banana.

Unfortunately, she didn’t notice it right away and must have swallowed it by accident. Baby teeth are small! She was a bit upset because we were planning on leaving it under her pillow for the tooth fairy.

We went with Plan B: leave a note.

On her own, Amanda wrote a note that any art director would be proud to commission. It’s the perfect “little kid writing” — written in crayon, backward S’s and all.

The tooth fairy apparently accepted her apology and took the note in exchange for a crisp dollar bill.
