Now I would like to say this has happened to our family only once, but that would not be entirely true. Sometimes, no matter how hard I try to remember I just plain forget.
Flash back to last week, which was very busy, but our son lost a tooth which he had been working on for close to a month. The tooth had basically been holding on out of sheer stubbornness! Whether that be my son's stubbornness or the tooth's remains foggy. Well the tooth finally came out at school. I greeted this news with happiness and joy as now I would no longer have to worry about him choking on it in the middle of the night.
Now flash forward to 6:30 am. I hear my son in the bathroom and realize the tooth fairy had not yet visited him. ACK! I wake the husband up, tell him to delay our son in the bathroom and then make a mad dash for my wallet only to find there was not a single quarter or dollar to be found anywhere. All right move onto the husband's wallet where I find only a crisp 5 dollar bill in residence. That seems a bit much for the tooth fairy, but there is no way that am I going to see my son's belief in magic destroyed. All right, 5 bucks it is!
I mad dash back to my son's bedroom, with a minor skirmish involving some cars and a train set. Not to brag or anything, but the leap onto his bed was of Olympic proportions. I snatched the tooth, stuffed the money under the pillow and raced to my bathroom to hyper ventilate.
My son was very happy to discover that the tooth fairy had left him quite a hefty sum. He now tells me that perhaps working on a tooth that long earns you more money from the tooth fairy. Oh brother!
Other mommies please tell me that you too have almost forgotten the tooth fairy.
