Communication with the Tooth Fairy.

Email this morning from my sister with a photo of Seven-year-old niece sans her third tooth. With the amount of indoor-outdoor flow in that child's mouth right now, she could eat a carrot through a tennis racket racket.

What I love is the letter she had written for the Tooth Fairy. In it she said that she and several friends, "are up for training to be a fairy. I'm also wondering if there are any other types of fairys? From Seven-year-old-niece, a friend, another friend, another friend and another friend. PS: Mainly from Seven-year-old-niece!!! PPS: Nine-year-old niece wants to be a fairy too. PPPS: what's the difference between a pixie and a fairy?"

I'm dying to know what the Tooth Fairy's response was.

Apparently pixies can't fly.

You do have to point out to the darlings that the only way they'll be able to see fairies is when they can breathe through their ears (this takes a lot of practice). You can helpfully demonstrate this by pointing at a fairy (while breathing through your ears) and asking them whether they can see it. Interestingly, while practicing breathing through their ears, they *have* to keep their mouths shut.

My sister! I thought they could fly, but they just couldn't land.

My cousin! Nice. But ten bucks says they will get you back. Just. You. Wait.
