Teeth

Last week, Seth lost a tooth. He named it Bob. He was happy with the four quarters the tooth fairy left him.

This week Sophie lost a tooth. It was a baby molar. It also came out with a cavity.

"Mom? How much would it cost to get a cavity filled at the dentist? "

"I don't know, maybe $100 or more. Why? "


"Well....don't' you think that you should at least pay me half of that for saving you all that money? "

HUH???

"Well, if I hadn't worked hard to make the tooth loose, and hadn't worked hard to pull it, then you would have had to pay the dentist to put a filling in it. Therefore I SAVED you money. I think you should share that savings with me. Don't you?"

Uh.....NO!

She comes from a line of lawyers, can you tell?

She settled for a 50 cent bonus.

Wait a minute....did I just PAY her for a cavity??

Sherry, That is too funny. Sounds like something Baby Monkey would try to pull.

She's very smart. Maybe she'll become a negotiator.

That is funny! She is one smart girl. Is she going to follow her big sister into lawyerhood?

What would Dad have said about you paying extra for a cavity?

That is so FUNNY! I once found a cavity when I got my tooth pulled too. But I never thought that would be a good way to make money. Too bad I've already lost all my teeth!

That is too cute!

I think I would be glad you are only paying her 50 cents more. You could have paid $100.

Smart cookie you have there!

Trickster. You should've given her at least a dollar for her hard work of trying to get at least Fifty cents.
