Parenting is full of moments that make you think, "this isn't in the manual!" Last night, I participated in an event, where, although I'd had lots of experience as a patient, I'd never been a doctor:
I slipped a piece of mint dental floss over my daughter's tooth, and with a quick yank, she was soon to be richer courtesy of a visit from the Tooth Fairy.
She was good with it until she noticed a little bit of blood...then she turned into a backup singer for an opening act heavy metal band. My ears have recovered, and she happily bounded into my home office this morning and gave me the full report on the fact that the Tooth Fairy visited, left her a dollar (cost-adjusted since I was little), and she was thrilled!
Ah, to be young again.
