With the tooth fairy, you can’t be too careful

A story of a cautious grandson.

My 7-year-old grandson recently lost his first tooth, but before it could be placed under his pillow, it went missing. The next morning, his 4-year-old brother asked him if the tooth fairy had come.

“Yes,” he replied. “And I made sure that I slept all night with my mouth open, so she could see the space!”
