I'm ready to fire our Tooth Fairy

Elaine, I think you and I must have the same Tooth Fairy (see Elaine's comment on yesterday's post). Last night, TF did remember to come and leave money for Bri, but then she inexplicably left the envelope with the tooth still in it, sitting on the coffee table, for the girls to find this morning. Everyone knows this just isn't how it's done. She must take the tooth. She must. Why, it's almost as if she plopped her tiny butt down on the couch to watch ESPN and eat chips or something- then flew off to bed, absentmindedly leaving the tooth behind.

This was her last chance. She even assured me last night that she would not screw up, since we've had a few run-ins in the past over various children being forgotten. Her exact words to me were, "I won't let you down." Sealed it with a kiss and everything. Does anyone know how devastating it is to be forgotten by the Tooth Fairy? Devastating to the mother, that is- since she's the one who will be reminded of it time and time again for all eternity. Uhhhh, yeah- she's totally fired. Flap those tiny wings and hit the bricks, Tooth Fairy.

Ya, I've had problems with our tooth fairy too. One time we thought she totally forgot about T~. There was nothing under her pillow in the morning, but the next night she had left a letter along with the money explaining that our cat Tyler had scared her away the night before. She was really sorry and left extra money for our trouble. That seemed to smooth things over.

I think the Tooth Fairy Union is taking advantage of us mothers... I've had a lot of problems with our TF too! I can't even count the number of times she's forgotten to come and then I have to save her butt the next day by pretending to look for the money whilst actually sneaking it under the pillow myself... I swear, good help is so hard to find these days!

Our tooth fairy is apparently in competition with another fairy. Three times double the money has been left because fairy #1 leaves money, kid finds it, and fairy #2 thinks no money was left so leaves more money. Great for the kids, not so much for the fairy federal reserve.

Perhaps she was drinking while watching ESPN?
