Tooth Fairy Mystery
M. lost his tooth at school. We forgot to put it under his pillow so we did it the next night. I remember thinking "oh I am too tired. I better tell D. to do the tooth fairy duties before he comes to bed." And that was the last I thought or did anything about it until the next morning. M. was already awake but hadn't looked under his pillow yet. I couldn't think of a way to get in there and make the exchange without him seeing me. He knocked on the bathroom door to tell me the Tooth Fairy left him a gold coin, but that the tooth was still there. I explained that TF must have been in a hurry since he'd said 4 kids in his class lost their teeth over 2 days. She'd just come back for it later (but he wouldn't get any more $). Later I thanked D. for remembering. He said he didn't do it. I told him to stop kidding. He was insistent that he did not put the coin under the pillow. I know I didn't. So who did?
