Oops

So even after my post last night about my second chance of redeeming my Tooth Fairy abilities, I again completely forgot. I ended up with a very dejected 6 year old at 7am. So this lame Tooth Fairy told her to to snuggle up in my own bed and that I had to use the bathroom. I went and performed the Tooth Fairy duties and since it was still dark outside, I told Bugs that there was still a chance that she'd come. A short time later, I pretended to hear tinkling and told Bugs to go check. Redeemed. But I'm feeling pretty stupid and if she doesn't figure it out, then she's not as clever as I thought she was. Perhaps she wants to believe so badly that she'll let it slide.

4 backward glances:

Food for thought: Our tooth fairy, Puxtawonkamie, is often delinquent. She has so many teeth to collect that she often misses us the first night. But she adds an extra coin for every night that she doesn't make it. She's awesome like that! Almost makes the kids hope she doesn't show up for several nights.

Lori, you're a lifesaver. Thanks for the tips. Bugs got a letter from the Toothfairy in the mail today explaining that particular "procedure". And now I am off the hook.

So been there! I got off the hook once by suggesting we look under the bed. Once I crawled under there we miraculously food the dollar that must have slipped under there!

Loved your last post too!

We once forgot 3 nights in a row! We gave the story about so many teeth to collect that she can't always make it on the first night. The will to believe inthe tooth fairy makes almost anything believable. Our almost 10 year old was desperate to be allowed to spend the money from her money box so she "stole" £10 out of it and told us the tooth fairy left it for her! She believes so strongly that she thought we'd accept it.
