The tooth fairy in our house has got a bit side tracked and forgot to check for teeth!
This isn’t the first time either that the tooth fairy has fallen asleep on the job, but this time I think I may have been found out!
When the boy lost the first tooth it was all very exciting, and he was given a very shiny new £1 coin, the next couple of teeth were also collected. Except when the boy wrote a note saying he wanted to keep them, then one night the fairy forgot. The boy fairy thought he would help out and left a £2 coin well that was it, much confusion because how much should a tooth be worth? So we helped by saying it might have been to do with how clean the tooth was.
Then the all important lost tooth at school, and even one which we think was eaten for breakfast. Last week another tooth loosened! Ok I think they are getting some help, but I was told ” I think this one might come out while I am at Grandad’s” Hmmm I think with some help it just might was my reply.
Well guess what it did come out, and in Sainsburys, so an extra, extra special tooth. The letter goes like this:
Dire tooth fery this tooth is a speshl tooth because I lost it in sansbrus with my granddad. I hop you injoy it. hopful I wile have a nuther tooth for you luve E
It wasn’t until we were in the car the following morning that the boy said that he had checked under his pillow and the tooth was still there. He did have a quiet word with Daddy and said “I have written the tooth fairy a letter (or should I say Mummy) !” So I have been rumbled, and when he gets home from his holiday at Granny’s I think it will be suspect that I have stripped and made the bed and the coin is waiting for him.
I have written a reply just in case, left-handed so it doesn’t look like my writing of course. What age did your kids work it out? and does this mean that Santa will be under question this year?
