Tooth Fairy! You're Fired! (again)

I don't know what it is about the Tooth Fairy. She just doesn't like visiting our house. I can't understand it, night after night she forgets.

After the first tooth, it took her five days to remember, that's right FIVE days. Useless. The next tooth, she forgot again, several times.

Third tooth was her last chance. She failed, so we had to give her the sack and don't tell me under the circumstances you wouldn't have done the same. I graciously took up her duties, as the teeth continued to fall out, I coughed up the required gold coin there and then, on the spot, in the cold hard light of day. Good system, I thought.

Only it's much more exciting to get the coin under your pillow, or so I'm told.

So, we decided to give the Tooth Fairy one more go.

It's exactly seven days since the latest tooth fell out. SEVEN DAYS. Tooth Fairy still hasn't come. How can you forget for SEVEN days in a row? How? Again I say how?

Bad fairy.

Did Climber tell him that?

Maybe if you left her a note? Somewhere she would see it before she signed off for the night, like beside your bed.

They just don't make fairies like they used to.

Totally fired - don't even let her clear her desk, call security and kick her out!

That is one very forgetful/lazy/naughty Tooth Fairy. She has had her three warnings and now it is time to face Human Resources and move on out.

She's canned. Probably doesn't even deserve severance pay.

Guess what?!

The tooth fairy came last night.

She must be one of my lurkers.

I'm all for sacking the tooth fairy too. She does a shocking job of turning up at our place. It doesn't help when you have a sneaky 10 year old who loses teeth, and leaves them for the tooth fairy without telling us. I explained that nowadays the tooth fairy requires an e-mail from parents to alert her to the need to visit - she can't be flying by every house every night just in case.

And when she does visit, she never seems to bring the right change with her. I mean, Tooth Fairy, really, you can't expect to get change for a $50 note from under a pillow. Prepare yourself.

I'm not so sure it's the Tooth Fairy's fault.

At the rate my boy seems to swallow his popped baby teeth, I think there's every chance he's been chowing down on the gold coins in his sleep too!

If things continue to be desperate, it's worth sugesting it...

Explain that the tooth fairy was in Las Vegas watching boxing matches. I'm sure a good many teeth get knocked out there.

tooth fairies cannot fly with wet wings. If there has been a heavy dew that could be the problem...

Did they not tell you at Fairy School that a lack of punctuality was a heinous breach of conduct?

Punishable by years of therapy bills.

Never fear, they'll have their revenge ...

Your tooth fairy is only marginally slacker than ours.

Ours found that an oven timer, set to go off at 10pm, helped her remember her duties.

(Took a few years for her to work that one out though).

Hi Suse, you are brilliant! thanks!
Yes.

Also, if you are here to prompt another post, it's at least another week away. My Mum is staying while my husband is away. (10 day hiking trip.)

Hey guess what - on cleaning up the boys room today I found TWO teeth. Just scattered randomly in the room.

TWO.TEETH.

Bad mummy. Bad bad mummy.

Bloody TF. She not only forgets, but when she DOES remember, she puts the teeth in a little silver box, just designed for the purpose.

I mean, who'd-a-thunk a 9 year old would figure out that a silver box, engraved with "Baby's first tooth" would, in fact hold the very same teeth the fairy took away in the first place? How the hell did they get in there, I ask you?

Stoopid TF.
