When I first started writing on this blog I wrote a post about my daughter Alivia. She has lost a total of 5 teeth and 2 of them have been pulled out by her kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Johnson. Alivia is now in 1st grade at a different school, but still keeps in contact with her especially when she has a wiggly tooth.
Well last night, after returning from a visit to Mrs. Johnson’s home, my son asked if she was a dentist or something because I was telling my husband how quick she pulled out Alivia’s tooth. Nope, not a dentist just a talented teacher. She has kids that are in older grades coming back to her to pull their teeth. Alivia might be the first one though that attends a different school and makes a house call.
In case this is too small to read, this is what she wrote:
Dear tooth fairy I got my tooth pulled but I could not find it please leaves some money under my pillow.
My sister is brilliant, for the note worked. After a quick potty break at 3:30 this morning the beautiful, oh so slender tooth fairy with much skill flew into Alivia’s room, read the note, checked inside the mouth for an empty space, slipped some quarters under her pillow and even kissed sleeping beauty on her cheek before going back to bed.
Needless to say we woke up to a very happy 6 year old this morning!
After taking this picture, Alivia went back upstairs to get ready for school when I heard her tell Aaron, “Fine, I’ll give you a quarter.” How low is this boy going to go? First he tells her the tooth fairy is fake, then tries to enjoy in her reward. I’ll have to make sure he never gets one on one time with Amiyah! Luckily, the tooth fairy came to the rescue and Aaron left for school with empty pockets.
Wouldn’t it be great if when we get unfocused on our calling that we could just write God a note saying:
I have lost my focus and can’t find it, but please still bless me and use me for I still love you.
Look inside my heart if you don’t believe me.
Thank God He isn’t a fantasy.
