Every school day my son requests his doodle...the one I draw on his snack bag. At times elaborate, whimsical, topical, but mostly just whatever he is into at the moment. I am NOT an artist, but indulge this request each day for fun. This is a daily musing about his requests.

Wannabe Dentist or Fetish Queen?
Oscar is officially a jack-o-lantern. He is currently missing both front teeth, making 4 losses of babies in total. Show of hands if you knew they were also called milk teeth, cause I sure didn't & have yet to find out why. Of course, Oscar awoke this morning to cold hard cash - the 4th transaction he's had with the tooth fairy to date. I did a little digging into the origins of the tooth fairy and her popularity - seems this business is dominated by either her or variations of mice throughout Europe. I think given the choice Oscar would choose the babe, because he is a total sucker for a cute girl. I can't answer his continuous questions about "why" she wants the teeth without making up outlandish stories (this by the way is one of the best parenting perks imaginable).Each time I change it up a bit, and never commit fully but hypothesize this is the way it is. This morning I told him she makes jewelry out of it and sells her wares at the Brooklyn Flea. I promised we would check out her stall next week. Happy Friday & have an awesome weekend ;) xoxo
