Our Tooth Fairy must have dementia… or a black heart.

She failed BIG back in Feb ’09. After 5 days of waiting, Olivia decided to leave a note:

I've been waiting...Fast forward to oh… say… A MONTH AGO… When Olivia swallowed a tooth.

And the Tooth Fairy failed to come.

And then 2 weeks later (when we were in Orlando) another tooth fell out… and she dropped it on the rock-like ground in one of the cabanas at the Hard Rock Hotel. Gone forever.

And that Tooth Fairy? A no-show.

And then Sunday afternoon – yet another tooth.

I have good friends who know the Tooth Fairy track record around here. My friend Jennifer was at our house when Olivia lost her tooth. She (being a GOOD mom, ahem) sent me a text later in the day…

One would think.

Mother. Of. Pearl.

Olivia decided to leave a note for the Tooth Fairy Monday night… locked away safely in a ziploc baggie… with the lost tooth – TAPED TO HER BEDROOM DOOR.

Thank goodness the Tooth Fairy goes for an early run most Tuesday mornings, otherwise… This is the note she left:

note to the tooth fairy

So I lost a tooth as you can see, but I also accidentally ate one and I literally lost one in Florida. Thanks.

I know the Tooth Fairy probably owed her at least $20. But she only had $6.

The good news is, the oldest is done losing teeth, and Olivia is nearing the end of her baby teeth era. But Lucy. She is one of the only kindergarteners who has not yet lost a tooth. Which means – our Tooth Fairy HAS A WHOLE MOUTH OF TEETH LEFT.

    My son has lost 2 teeth and the tooth fairy only remembered once.

  2. OMG. That reminds me…my daughter has been losing many teeth and lost one this past Sunday at a Disney water park (what is it with losing teeth at theme parks?). Thankfully, we found it before the wave pool washed it away. But…it’s still in my bag! I keep forgetting to give it to her to put under pillow so the tooth fairy can come. Ay!!!

  3. I love it. Too funny. In playing the tooth fairy have forgotten to make pick up a couple times. So the Reminder would have helped me out. LOL

  4. Yeah I’ve forgotten my son’s tooth on at least two occasions. Luckily that dollar makes up for it. Plus he’s a light sleeper and it’s really hard to fool him unless it’s like midnight but I’m never up that late. That is why the tooth fairy forgets at my house.

    Love her notes!

    Your tooth fairy must be working swing shift at our house. She once ignored a tooth, even after the kid wrote her a reminder and taped the tooth to the refrigerator, for two weeks.
    I don’t know what I’m gonna do with her…
    I just wish our honesty with our kids hadn’t laid the blame squarely on my doorstep.

  6. Mine just lost her first…..
    No note was required, but I’m a keener. Ask me again at the end of this gig.

  7. oh girl – I almost made it through with a clean record. But then, for Jackson’s like 300th tooth, I blew it. Like three nights in a row. And then the 301 too!
    Fortunately, at Christmas, I told him the truth about it all. I gave it to him straight. So now the pressure is off until Olivia starts… sigh… you know — I am going to make JACKSON the tooth fairy for her!!!!!!!! He will LOVE that!

  8. This is hilarious. You kill me.

  9. oh crud, you just reminded me that my youngest dd lost 2 teeth last week, about a day apart, and the tooth fairy has been MIA.

    …and…I’m too tired right now at 1 a.m to go scrounging for change.

    bad mommy

    Lol. Too funny! I love that your daugther wrote such detailed notes to the tooth fairy. I have 2 boys and the oldest is slowly getting close to that losing teeth stage. I have to admit I’m a little nervous about the whole process. It was cool when I was a kid, but now….maybe a little gross. 🙂 This Mom’s Guide (http://www.1dental.com/moms-guide/#loosing-teeth) has offered some great practical helps on caring for kids’ teeth from infancy through the teen years. Very glad to have this resource.
