The Lost, Lost Tooth

Dear Tooth Fairy,

I wish I could give you my tooth but I lost it. Could you still please leave me a treat? Tooth Fairy - do you have a castle made of teeth? Will you write me an email back and try not to wake me up?

Abby (age 5)

Dear Abby,

Congratulations on loosing your first tooth. Please be very careful with the next tooth you lose. If you save that tooth for me, I will tell you what I do with all the teeth. I am leaving you some money to buy yourself a treat.

The Tooth Fairy

Epilogue: After spending a good bit of time looking for the lost tooth, Abby admitted to us that she accidentally ate her tooth while trying to fit it back in her mouth. Ugh...
Also wanted to note that the tooth fairy does not do email. :)
