Tucking Emma into bed tonight she says, "Mom I have been keeping a secret from you and Dad. But I really need to tell one of you because it isn't working."
Sticking her tongue through a hole in the side of her smile she continues, "I lost a tooth two days ago, but for some reason the Tooth Fairy won't come. I put the tooth under my pillow when it happened, but it's been two nights now. I didn't want to tell you because I was going to surprise in the morning when there was money under my pillow."
Oh my precious precious Emma, I'll let you read this someday and fill in the gap. I just love you and your sweet innocence. Please, oh please, don't ever grow up. xoxo
