Strange Sighting

Hello, F.O.T.E.s! The Ewe apologizes for the lack of attention to the blog recently.
Well, I thought I'd share with you an odd appearance here at The Fold lately. My girls tell me that a squat little sprite visited them one night last week after I had tucked and prayed them into bed. They said she was wearing a red tulle tutu (yes, you read that right) and an angelic smile as she ballet-jumped into their room. They said she was doing dizzy, lopsided pirouttes and waving her arms around like a monkey. Her long, graying brown hair was flowing around her.
I should also tell you that both Carnival and Lovable had each lost teeth within the week and that particular night, they had scurried around dropping lost canines and incisors into Ziplocs--then stuffing the Ziplocs under their pillows. Yes, The Tooth Fairy exists here at The Fold.
The Old Gal had no trouble finding Lovable's tooth, but Carnival wanted to have a little fun at T.F.'s expense. Carnival had pushed her tooth way up under her pillow and T.F. was left with no option but to tickle the girl out of the way.
After depositing the standard dollar (inflation), the Round One grand jete'd out of the room with a flourish.
Last I saw her, The Tooth Fairy was in the bathroom, tugging the tutu off and stuffing it into the bathroom closet.
We did have some trouble with Musical that night. She was disappointed T.F. hadn't left her a dollar. I explained that The Tooth Fairy isn't running a charity and to get a dollar, you have to lose a tooth. She didn't like that plan and argued that it ought to count for something that she had just learned to blow a bubble with bubble gum. I assured her that, even though her name clearly defines her as the TOOTH fairy, I'd plead her case with T.F. and get back to her.
So, if you see a short little round lady in your children's room one night...CALL THE POLICE!!! This is a one-family only Tooth Fairy--but Walmart sells red tulle... WINK!
Well, must run...Y'all keep your wool dry!
