Last Friday Ben came home with a tooth on a necklace hanging around his neck.
He dutifully tucked it away for the fairy that night.
She didn't show.
Night Two: (yikes) no show again.

And there is a den mommy who has us beat--she is an identical twin. She and her sister married identical twin brothers. They live next door to each other. She has a set of 11-year-old twin boys, and a boy in first grade.
