The Tooth Fairy

The Tooth Fairy at our house is forgetful and sleep deprived. Seriously.
Last night she almost put a $20 bill under a pillow for a tooth. That would have been a serious mistake. Thankfully at the last minute she noticed her failure and corrected it.

The Tooth Fairy here also forgets when the tooth owner is being a brat. The last lost tooth was under the pillow for almost a week before the tooth fairy got around to visiting.

But here is something that the Tooth Fairy at our house is pretty proud of: keeping track of those lost teeth. She collects the teeth in little baggies and puts them in a Book of Secrets (teamed up with Santa etc) and lines them up in the order they were lost, where and what payment was made.

Look at those tiny cute little suckers. I don't know what she'll want them for... but a good tooth fairy keeps inventory. (I have my lost teeth still)

Olea has lost a few teeth at school. So I thought it would be a good idea to thank her teacher properly for helping out the Tooth Fairy. I need to remember this for all my kid's second grade teachers. It's easy and handy as I am sure more than my child has lost a tooth at school. I have a bunch of 1x1inch ziplock baggies in a larger bag and I tied a note, "For the Tooth Fairy's Helper."

Carry on.

  2. That's a great idea! You continually amaze me.
