    helped out with the tooth fairy thing.

    The note was in about 1 point font, and I got to figure out what it said.  Occasionally it is borne in upon me that my daughter is very like her father - I had a lot of trouble with keeping the laughter enough under control to read the note to my granddaughter.  I can make things up pretty easily, too; but not such a high flight as this was.

    It was an apology for going to the wrong house and then leaving the money behind by accident.  It thanked her for being so generous about providing her teeth, which are used to make fairy dust - Santa, his reindeer and elves are the biggest customers, and the Easter Bunny gets a lot, too.  She should brush her teeth at least twice a day and floss once because the fairies can't use rotten teeth to make fairy dust.  And, PS, thanks for the water.

    Strength and dignity are her clothing, she rejoices at the days to come; She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the law of kindness is on her tongue.

      My "santa" would chew down Rudolph's carrot so I could see evidence that they had come and gone overnight.  A tiny little note is an elegant touch!

      I lost a tooth in the dirt next to a tree once, but the tooth fairy found it there and left a quarter wrapped in a lot of (easy to spot) paper!

      All had to be pulled at the dentist's, and he wouldn't send them home for the tooth fairy because he said it was unsanitary.

      My Mom told me the Tooth Fairy was kind of dumb, and if we put a grain of rice under my pillow, she'd never know the difference. Sure enough, the next morning I found a quarter where the grain of rice had been.

      Unfortunately for my Mom, I got the bag of rice and dumped the whole damn thing on my bed, figuring to make a killing the next morning.

      Of course, I got nothing, and I was afraid to say anything. When I got home from school that day, the rice was gone. Mom never said a word about it, and I didn't dare ask. From that day on, she paid up front for my pulled teeth.

      The note to your granddaughter should become a family heirloom! How adorable!
