Dear Tooth Fairy: A Business Proposition

While we don't usually focus on non-Lovey repair stories, tonight Amalia had a reasonable inquiry for the Tooth Fairy.

She lost her front tooth today, and in the traditional accompanying letter she asked if the Tooth Fairy read the news.

"Why do you ask?" I asked.

Because if she did, reasoned Amalia, then she would have heard of Lovey Repair.  "And if she's heard of Lovey Repair, maybe she would want to bring us any broken Loveys she finds."  She continued that the Tooth Fairy would bring them to us for overnight repair. And we would, of course, finish the job with plenty of time for the Tooth Fairy to return the Lovey before the young owner woke up.

Right, mom?


The Tooth Fairy did leave a 1935 half-dollar and a note back.  But I haven't ready it yet :)
