Yesterday, I had a mom fail. A huge one. The tooth fairy forgot to come and trade my son’s first lost tooth for money.
My son was devastated. Like, sobbing and crawling up in my lap devastated. And I felt horrible. I blogged about it. After I blogged, the Tooth Fairy Saga continued…
Yesterday afternoon we went to lengths to ensure that the tooth fairy did not forget my son again. He asked his older sister how the tooth fairy is supposed to know when he loses a tooth, and she gave him a rather, well, unconventional answer: apparently, the tooth fairy has installed a mini-cam in his nose that extends down to his mouth and watches his teeth. Prepared with that knowledge, he wrote the tooth fairy a note.
Let me give you a close-up of that note:
There’s no other way to say this than with emoticons: 😂😂😂
At the suggestion of a dear friend, I also posted my own note to the tooth fairy along with these pictures on my Facebook account. After all, perhaps my daughter is wrong about the mini-cam? Perhaps the tooth fairy uses social media instead.
It’s now 7:42 a.m. on Saturday and my son has still not awaken, but something tells me the tooth fairy remembered him this time. We shall see tomorrow, with the Conclusion of the Tooth Fairy Saga…
