Last night the tooth fairy had to show up .... my best friend randomly commented that she had a few Bakugan she found in her garage, and I jumped at the chance!!! We instituted a "the tooth goes in a bag so the tooth fairy can find it" rule, and this morning he found the bag with 3 shiny quarters, and one little Bakugan. (Daddy saved the cards and the other 2 for bribery/later teeth).
He ran into our room jumping up and down that the tooth fairy gave him a Bakugan! He gave two of his quarters to his brother (which he'd said he was going to do, which was why the tooth fairy was so nice), gave one quarter to his sister, and kept the Bakugan. (Boy, what a surprise).
A few minutes later I hear a gasp that could only be a child gagging or hyperventilating. I jump out of bed, RUN to the living room, and find him with his mouth wide open, "Mommy," he whispered, "look what it turns into!!!" (It's an exceptionally awesome one that has a snakelike neck).
sadly, I have the sneaking suspicion the tooth fairy will be visiting again tonight for the other top tooth. But nothing can be as cool as finding a new Bakugan toy under your pillow. .... I never considered using little toys until yesterday, it turns out the kids are more excited for those than money, who would have guessed?
