My son and daughter are both grown up now, successful adults with jobs and lives of their own. I suspect the reason I have kept their old teeth all these years is that every night the Tooth Fairy paid my kids a visit wasn't only a magical experience. For them, it was also a practical learning experience.
There are so many awesome things about being a mom. This is just a little glimpse into the last week of my life and the reasons I wake up every morning with so much hope. Maybe this will be the day motherhood pays off. Maybe this will be the day that I figure it all out. Only to lay in bed again at night deflated. Today is not that day.
