Tooth Fairy

So the Tooth Fairy was scheduled to make her first appearance at Casa de Dummies last night.

#2, who shares a room with #1, was not convinced that he wanted some "strange lady" creeping around his room in the dark (that'll change soon). As a matter of fact, he shared with me that he "hates her" and doesn't want her "stealin' things or touching his stuff." I guess the paranoia has not subsided as I'd hoped it would. However, he was pretty psyched about the fact that she would be leaving some cash. I didn't have the energy to tell him that the money would be the sole property of #1 to do with what he chooses. I mean, he grew the tooth so it's only fair that he keep the cash.

#1 thought it would be a nice idea to leave the Winged One a little note. It read:

Dear Tooth Frairy,
My tooth fells out when I was bushing my teeth this moning. Plesea leave me some quarters. You can have the tooth.
Your fiend,

Here is what her response was:

Dear #1,
Thank you kindly for allowing me to keep your mini chomper as a souvenir. It's about time you had something for me! I was starting to wonder if you were EVER gonna lose a tooth. I'm glad you only requested a couple of quarters, it being a recession an all. Please make sure that you brush these things a little bit longer, and hitting them with some floss every now and again would be nice too. Hope to see you again soon. Your second row of teeth is getting pretty crowded and would probably love it if your baby teeth made a little space for them. Thanks again.

Your Friend,
Tooth Fairy

Hubby wanted to leave a note regarding the recession and various economic woes in lieu of the coinage, but I thought that would be a bit harsh.

Hubby also refused to dress up in a pink gown and wings, just in case he got caught.

Hubby is no fun.

This is too funny! I just love it. His note was much better then my daughters. She wanted to know what the tooth fairy does with all of the teeth and why they have to be white. The letter back was quite a bit longer.

What a great post! Love the note.

My 4 year-old didn't want Santa getting into our house and requested that he just magically get the presents under the tree. After all, if he could fit through the chimney, surly he could a few get a few gifts down there without breaking and without entering our house.

I can only imagine how unimpressed she'll be by the tooth fairy...

I never thought to leave a note for the TF when I was a kid. My daughter is getting ready to start losing teeth maybe I will have her leave a note this time. If you ever talk hubby into the outfit we must have pics lol. Great blog!!!!

That's hilarious. I love that he didn't want some "strange lady" walking around his room in the dark.
