Santa = Free Right?

Sweetums and I recently went to her school book fair. I informed her of the allotted amount of books we would buy and we went on in. She quickly found an overpriced toy item and begged to purchase it. She was even willing to trade some of her allotted books for the item. (What a sacrificing gal.)

I being the ever perfect mother informed her we were here for books-and besides that thing was overpriced and I was NOT going to pay that amount for such a thing!

So Christmas morning when she discovered that very toy in her stocking, she quickly exclaimed, "Mom, look what Santa brought me! Now you don't have to pay too much for it--we got it for free!"

In our house there are technically two Tooth Fairies and two Elf On The Shelf helpers-- have been for years...Technically.

However ONE of them is out of town.
THE ONE that actually remembers they have a job. THE ONE that actually remembers to do that job- BEFORE the kiddos search, look, seek, become disappointed, cry and get boohooish.

And unfortunately because the slacker is the one home, and a tooth has gone missing and the tooth fairy was LATE, and Fiddle the Elf has been "watching" us for several days without moving, the eldest child of the house has personally recruited herself into early "helper of the magically creatures of the joint." Sad, but true.
