The Tooth Jar
By Mary L. Bushong
  

1     Lana sat next to Grandma. She enjoyed looking at the old photo album. "Who is this?" she asked, pointing at a picture. It was of a small girl with a wide smile. She had a big gap where her front teeth were missing.
 
2     "That is your mother when she was about your age. We thought her front teeth would never come in," said Grandma.
 
3     Lana laughed. "She looked funny with those teeth missing."
 
4     "Yes, she did," smiled Grandma.
 
5     "Did the tooth fairy take her teeth, too?" asked Lana. "She takes mine."
 
6     "We liked to pretend she did," said Grandma. "Your mom would put the tooth under her pillow and go to sleep. The next morning there would be a quarter in its place."
 
7     "What really happened to the tooth?" asked Lana.
 
8     "Well," said Grandma. "Maybe I shouldn't tell you this, but I kept them."
