Emilia lost her top tooth last night. Why do we say that? Lost? My mom pulled her tooth.
She looks so funny without it, and she sounds a little funny, too. The tooth fairy was a little bit tired last night, I think. She left her a 5-peso piece and a quarter. I think she meant to leave two quarters, but didn't take time to look at what she pulled out of her fairy coin purse in the dark. Emilia was excited anyway. I asked her, "How did the tooth fairy know you are Mexican?" She said, "Maybe because I eat lots of tacos and tostadas."
