Worst feeling ever...

Yesterday, my child came into my room and woke me up, saying, "Mommy, the Tooth Fairy didn't take my tooth last night."

been there. (ahem, more than once.) someone should invent a tooth fairy reminder alarm or something. maybe there's an app for that? :)

Ha! No app, but we googled it and found out that the tooth fairy can't find the tooth if it is in a zip-lock bag. We fixed the problem and she came last night :)

Worse feeling: your child telling you that they know who the tooth fairy REALLY is and they say that YOU told them over the summer. Really, what? I wouldn't do that.... I think. I must be the worst parent ever! But actually, this has turned out really great for us.

Veena,

By "You" you mean you (Veena), not you (me), right?I swear I didn't tell your kid that. And if I did, my excuse is that I just had a baby and was on some pretty heavy ibuprofen, so I cannot be held responsible for my words or actions.

Veena said...

Yes, I mean ME! Sorry for the confusion. :)

This is a constant problem for our house. Happily, we live out in the boonies and everyone has trouble finding our house, so we just extend that problem to the tooth fairy.

That has happened at our house too many times to count. My kids started putting signs in their windows to let the tooth fairy know where they live. And they would leave her notes too.

Ha ha, and I love the responses! One time when I was little, the tooth fairy kept messing up for about a WEEK with the same tooth, so my Grandpa finally came over and handed me some money. I think he was a tad disgusted with the tooth fairy.
Glad yours figured it out the next day. Those darn ziploc bags

You put the tooth in a ziplock? Is that some wierd asian thing? No wonder the American tooth fairy got confused. Our fairy forgets quite frequently. And the 10 year old is not afraid to let her/him/it/us hear about it!!!
