Tooth Fairy, Earrings, and Sisters

I try to keep my full-out bragging to a minimum here on the blog, but this is one of those times (like this one from last summer) where one of my kids has stepped up and out of the realm of just being cute, sweet, smart, funny, and good-natured in the eyes of their adoring parents and has done something so genuine and thoughtful that I just can't help but do a little brag post.


Exhibit A:   A letter written to the tooth fairy after s/he'd forgotten to come seven full nights after losing her tooth. 
Of course the tooth fairy came that night. 


Exhibit B:  As soon as she had her tooth fairy loot in hand, Emma started bubbling with excitement about how she finally had enough money to buy a pair of the handmade earrings the school lunch lady sells to the kids for $3 a pair.

 My thought:  Oh, they're as cute as can be for her newly pierced ears (that are now totally healed from the freak gym class incident).


Exhibit C:   The attached note. 

After all that build up of having to remind the tooth fairy to come, all Emma really wanted was to buy a special present for her big sister.

Exhibit D:  One very happy 12-year-old sister. 

(and a mom with a tear in her eye).

Awwww! You have every reason to brag...besides, you remind me that my girls DO have it in them to do something besides beat each other up.
