Wanted: New Tooth Fairy




For the third or fourth tooth, Sophia's tooth fairy has completely snubbed her.  The anticipation of waking up to something clanking under her pillow has been far too disappointing lately!  Nothing, but a leftover tooth in her little box.  Does anyone know where we could procure a responsible tooth fairy that is consistent and thoughtful?  Is it so much to ask for to drop by for at most a minute and slip a little something under the pillow for a little girl who is waiting for some tooth fairy affection?  My only thought is that our tooth fairy must have a family of her own and after getting her own kids safely tucked into bed and the dinner dishes cleared and washed and everything shut down for the night, maybe she takes a side trip to the couch to watch her latest DV-R recordings for "just a few minutes" before she winds down to take off on her tooth fairy flight.  Then suddenly finds herself drifting off to slumber without remembering her duties.  Yeah, I could see that happening for sure.  


But, if anyone knows of a more reliable tooth fairy needing a gig, let me know. I can't take the disappointment in a certain 7 year old's eyes even one more time!


Tooth #8 bites the dust!  Our jack 'o lantern this year is going to be identical.  ;-)

Love this post! In addition to a new tooth fairy, how about a fairy puts the kids to bed and clears and washes the dinner dishes too?

Nice story, but odds are that the tooth fairy is just lazy or cheap :-)

Ours has a tendency not to make an appearance especially if the tooth donor has been talking back and rude to Mom or Dad! [thankfully it was only one time, maybe the tooth donor has realized the error of his ways]

We found that when the kids thought the toothfairy had forgotten them that she had hid the money somewhere else in the house to make it more fun. Hmmmm, that could have been done any time during the day or night. Sometimes she left a little extra if it had taken a few days.

Good luck!

I think we are registered with the same tooth fairy... just ask Erika. She had several teeth that didn't get picked up for a day or two!
