Santa Claus and The Tooth Fairy

Christmas Eve isn’t the best day to break your tooth. Christmas Eve isn’t the best day for someone in your family to break a tooth. Mom and I were tidying up the kitchen, getting ready for the next round of company to show up for Christmas Eve. Half eaten plates of food and cookies littered the island in the kitchen. We had already done some entertaining in the few days previous and received some tasty gift baskets from friends, so the goodies were abounding. As we rearranged and consolidated the dishes, Mom picked up a bowl of caramel corn that was all but empty. Not wanting any good food to go to waste, she tossed the final handful of caramel corn into her mouth. I heard a cracking sound and then Mom exclaimed, “Oh no!”

She held in her palm, a large piece of her tooth. “What in the world am I going to do now?” she asked, knowing that every dentist is on vacation for at least the next two days.

My son came running in and looked at the chunk of tooth in her hand. “Grandma!” He said, “Put it under your pillow and see if you get some money for it!”

Santa Claus made it to our house later that night, but apparently the tooth fairy didn’t. Mom didn’t get any money for her tooth. As a matter of fact, instead, I think she’s going to have to pay a pretty penny for it. At least she’ll be queen for a day, because I think she’s definitely getting a crown.
