after giving odin a sacagawea one dollar coin for his first tooth and a two dollar bill for his second tooth and three magic stones for his third tooth we were all curious what she’s bring for the fourth, especially given such short notice!
and it seems that the the tooth fairy decided to show her philosophical side this time around and left a card with “Love Joy Widsom and Kindness” on the front cover under his pillow.
on the inside of the car we found a small pouch with four seeds and a poem:
here are four wishes i have for you
plant them well so they grow in you
plant each with care deciding just where
the fruit of the harvest we will reap
and in our hearts it will keep
we explained that the tooth fairy meant the four seeds were magical and represented Love, Joy, Widsom & Kindness and that she wanted him to grow those things deep in his heart. or something like that.
it was a little complicated but he thought it was a mighty thoughtful gift.
we’ll try to plant the seeds and see if they grow anything real along with a metaphor. who knows, maybe we’ll end up with a giant beanstalk in the backyard.
