Miyu has been keeping her three baby teeth in a small jar I got from Daiso. She’s been asking me for a while now why the tooth fairy still hasn’t visited her. Well, that’s because the tooth fairy has been out of touch but is finally getting her life together. It may have taken her a few years, but so what?
No, what I’ll actually say to her (once she discovers the money in the jar) is “See, you just have to be patient. The tooth fairy visits eventually.” Then I’ll most likely have to explain what “eventually” means. I’m happy to report that Miyubear received ¥1,000 ($10) per tooth. 🤓 💰💰💰
Ken was shocked when I showed the jar to him, commenting how he only received ¥500 ($5) per tooth when he was a kid. I couldn’t really sympathize because when I was a kid, I don’t recall ever receiving anything from the tooth fairy. He asked me why I didn’t put the money under her pillow and I shrugged, saying this was more convenient. Plus, this non-traditional tooth fairy is a few years late, might as well consolidate.
