Me + Tooth Fairy = Not good

Boo lost a tooth at school yesterday. That is such a big deal to a little kid. They get to go to the nurse, get a tooth box and carry it around the rest of the day.

She was on Cloud 9 when she called after school.

Then I went and messed it up.

The Tooth Fairy and I have a love-hate relationship. I love that she exists, but HATE that I am that stinking Tooth Fairy.

For the third, yes I said third, time in a ROW the Tooth Fairy has failed to leave money for Boo.

Yes, I have failed again.

I blame the fact that our thermostat was not working. It was cold in our house.

Told Boo that the Tooth Fairy does not come into houses that are too cold, so when Daddy fixed it I bet she would come.

I think she bought it.

Only time will tell...

How much do you think therapy will cost in 15 years?

Therapy will cost more than money from the tooth fairy!

we always forget. daddy told them that sometimes she 'hides' the money. amazingly, daddy is the one who always 'finds' it the next morning.

That darn tooth fairy! I hear that she is always forgetting some houses!

I hear you! Sometimes the tooth fairy just doesn't have cash, either. When that happened the last time it was raining that night, so Miss P decided the Tooth Fairy can't come when it's raining or her wings would get wet. I was all, "Um, yeah, I bet that's it!"

Maybe you could tell her that the tooth fairy didn't recognize that fancy new box she got at school! I always try to convince my kids that maybe they hid the tooth too well or put it in a weird spot and the TF just couldn't find it! I assure them she will return the next night for a second look. =]
