Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

the tooth fairy confessions

Since this week has been a tough one for Nessa(see post), I've been thinking a lot of the tooth fairy in our house lately. Nessa kindly reminded me that the tooth fairy at our house is not very good. We have to e-mail it often to remind the fairy of its duty or at least that's how I explain it to my children.

Anyway, a funny story came up that my children remember happened to Nessa when once, out of sheer desperation, I had asked my husband to help me with improving the tooth fairy operations. Of course, I can't remember everything but Nessa had remembered. Our recent conversation went something like this:

"Mom, don't you think the tooth fairy is forgetful?"

"Yes, I think so."

"One time the tooth fairy gave me a sucker under my pillow."

"What?! A sucker...what do you mean? I don't remember that. I don't think that's what...I(um, cough) I mean the tooth fairy would do."

"Don't you remember the tooth fairy gave me a sucker, you know, a lollipop?"

"I just don't get it, why?"

"That's what I was wondering the next morning. I didn't think suckers were good for your teeth. That's what the dentist said when I told him about it."

"Oh, great. Well, I'll have to talk to the other tooth fairy about this."

"Yeah, tell the tooth fairy I'd rather have some money like other kids get."

"I'll keep that in mind."

As you can just imagine what I, as a mom, was thinking from the above dialogue like what was the dentist really thinking when Nessa told her about tooth fairy sucker's and so on...?Anyway, when Nessa put her certificate from loosing this last tooth - actually having it pulled at the dentist's - the tooth fairy was determined to give money.

Well, as we skip to the next morning, it turns out the poor tooth fairy was still a bit forgetful due to a late night being on call, so to speak, but managed to slip $3.00 dollars under her pillow in the hours during breakfast without being caught in mid-morning daylight. The usual is $2 but an extra dollar for Nessa's bravery and having a forgetful tooth fairy couldn't hurt either.

Maybe, the tooth fairy needs to set an e-mail alert program or cell phone alert or something.....?

Luckily, Nessa's happier with her money this time like all the other kids that have normal tooth fairies.

the toothfairy always left us $1, and I suppose with inflation my kids should be getting more, but they aren't. Just $1. Morrigan got an extra quarter for the tooth that got pulled last year, the one he broke out on Ambrose's head.

That is so funny! Wow, things have changed since the nickel or quarter we used to get:)

Perhaps, I'm thinking, the tooth fairy left too much money. Lucky!
