As if having her birthday and Christmas all in this month, she also is awaiting a visit from the Tooth Fairy tonight. Yup, lost another tooth tonight. She called her dad to let him know and I overheard the comment "man, I am just rolling in the money now, aren't I?'. She has also taken to shaking out each Christmas card she opens in case a birthday or Christmas check has somehow gotten lost in the card.
Another funny story (to me anyway)-last week I had ordered something online for Elena. She later remarked about how neat it was that I could use pretend money and order real things online. I tried to explain that it was real money, but somehow clicking a button can't be explained that it's just like paying with cash. When I was her age, my parents used cash and checks, maybe occasionally a charge card. There were no ATM's, if you needed cash you had better get to the bank on Friday nights, the night they stayed open til 8:00 PM or Saturday AM when they were open from 9-noon. If it was Sunday, you were SOL. Most stores were closed on Sundays also-not a Blue Law thing either.
