It seems that Santa (yes the very same Santa who tracked down a certain Bionicle) was able to talk to the Tooth Fairy and pull a few strings and retrieve that long lost "Toothy".
You should have seen his face. It was priceless. Priceless.
I am so thankful that we've been able to enjoy yet another magical year with BubTar. I know the number is finite and somewhere in the not-so-distant future will end altogether, but for now I am completely happy having a little boy who wholeheartedly believes that Santa has the foresight and clout to get a lamented tooth back from the evil clutches of the Tooth Fairy. And that, to me, is the joy of Christmas, alive and well for one more year.
