The tooth fairy is fallible

Over many years, the tooth fairy came to our house. Sometimes she was on time. Sometimes she was on vacation and arrived days later–once it was multiple missed days for which she sent her apologies.

This audio reading was from 1981 and it was the tooth fairy’s first chance to make a payout for our firstborn. Still, she muffed it and to this day she is sad for disappointing little Robby.

These days the tooth fairy has issues too. Good thing she eventually catches on to her slip-ups and, even if late, pays up for the teeth.

If I hear correctly, instead of a dime or quarter, the tooth fairy has inflated her pay for teeth. I guess teeth are worth more these days.
