The Tooth Fairy is Fired

In the past couple of weeks we've had three girls; Penny, Danya, and now Gloria, lose a tooth. Every single time they put their tooth under their pillows in a little plastic baggie. Every single time the Tooth Fairy forgot to show up. Fortunately the Tooth Fairy, upon being informed the next morning of her abysmal failure by a weeping little girl, was able to swap the tooth for a baggie with a buck in it while the kids were getting dressed. Then their mom claimed that they had simply overlooked the money that the Tooth Fairy left for them and they needed to look again.

It's sad, but true. Personally, I think the Tooth Fairy needs to be fired.

Ya know...she's been known to do that a time or two around here as well. I wonder if the Easter Bunny would be interested in taking up the tooth fairy gig? Hmmmm...LOL!

Nah, he'd probably leave candy instead of money. Not good for new teeth growing in. :)

I let my kids be the tooth fairy for each other. I would give them the money and tell them to sneak it under their sister's pillow in the morning. It was great fun and always ended with lots of giggling when they were caught. My kids loved playing tooth fairy more than getting the money for their own tooth.
