The Tooth Fairy

Despite my family's non-conventional holiday traditions as they relate to holiday characters, we do participate in "The Tooth Fairy". Our first experience with our oldest child, he didn't want the tooth fairy to take his tooth so he wrote a note asking to keep the tooth. It has continued ever since. And our second child has been doing the same thing. Early this morning Corbyn pulled out a loose tooth. Then as he was telling me about it Cole came up and said to "Email the Tooth Fairy". I asked him what he meant. He told me that I needed to send an email "so that it would know that Corbyn lost a tooth and to bring money". I don't remember ever having to email the Tooth Fairy about any lost teeth. When my four year old is telling me to email the Tooth Fairy, it makes me think of how the forms of communication Carey and I have chosen to use has had such an effect on what he understands to be the way to get ahold of someone.
