We are a married couple who adopted our little Russky, Nikita {aka Nicky, Nicky noodle, little man, Nikoli, the Nickster, crazy dude, goofball, puppy love, etc...you get the picture!} from St Petersburg, Russia four years ago. Join us as we stumble through the joys and perils of parenthood, while our son teaches us a few things along the road...


How Dare the Tooth Fairy Leave "Paper"!!!

nick lost his first tooth while we were in san diego, on our way to the zoo...while eating an apple...and must have swallowed it...and never said a single word about it until daddy randomly noticed he was missing it when we walked into the zoo!  then, all heck broke loose, because "it bleed" and nick is NOT a fan of the "bleed".  after calming him down, and surmising that he swallowed it, and telling him that it's ok to tell us that he's lost a tooth, that it's a good thing & that he will get money from the tooth fairy for each tooth, all was good.  we didn't have a real tooth to put under his pillow, so instead we used a piece of folded paper as his "tooth" {may have been daddy's folded up beer label...may not have been...}.  here's how things went down the next morning:

momma:  good morning nick!  what'cha doin?  did the tooth fairy come see you?
nick:  no!  she didn't leave me anything!  see!
momma:  looks like there's something there...
nick:  yeah.  just this paper!  {of which he had wadded up because he apparently didn't have a clue what it was...or probably thought it was still the "tooth" we had placed under there the night before}
 momma & daddy:  well...that looks like that's money!
nick:  this paper is money?  but it's not coins!
momma & daddy:  yeah bud!  that's $5!  it's worth more than the coins!
{if the tooth fairy had known she coulda just left a few quarters...}
 nick:  oh!  this is a lot of money?
momma & daddy:  yep!  you can use it to buy something you see while we're out & about today!
nick:  really?!  i can BUY something?!
momma & daddy:  yep!  anything you want that costs $5!
 nick:  granny!  poppa!  look!  i got MONEY!!!
nick has since lost his 2nd tooth...of which the tooth fairy paid him in a sandwich baggie full of coins.  she ain't no dummy! ;o)
xoxo...liese :o)
