We're also really thinking that there was a whole lot less "losing" than there was yanking this time around. And we're thinking it may have had something to do with the fact that the Toothfairy gave her $5 bucks just last Thursday night for her ginormous front rabbit tooth, and here she noticed she had a sorta kinda loose one, and here it's just a week from Christmas, and here she hasn't yet bought presents for anyone, and here, it seems, the girl was presented with an easy, logical, and self-fulfilling opportunity for some easy cash.
So, I'm not sure how long she'd been plotting it, but sometime between the few minutes that the bell rang this afternoon at school and she stood up in line to leave, and when she actually came outside to see us, she acquired a whole new gap.
And there's already a monster coming in behind it, too. (Yet another maternal line inheritance, along with her gift of gab and hard-to-love toenails.)
