My burning desire as a child? My ambition? My consistent answer to "what do you want to be when you grow up, Katie?"
Not doctor, not lawyer, not president.
I thought it sounded like an awesome job. Fly around. Collect teeth. Leave money for kids. Sign me up.
When my mom finally set me straight (waay later than normal) regarding my future career and um, the fact that shhh....she's not real. I lost my sh%$. For days, I am told. Tears and more tears and "why did you tell me's???".
See? Not too smart.
Anyway, zip forward 30some years and guess freaking what?
I AM THE TOOTH FAIRY NOW.

Ella's lost 5 teeth already and I'm sort of a pro now.

I am so pathetic. ;)
E's letter to the tooth fairy....
Regarding my half marathon training. (I am doing Disney Princess Half at the end of Feb.) It is going great. I am really loving running 5-6 days a week...shocking the hell out of me.
