We all know that tooth fairies are busy little creatures. Perhaps not quite as busy as Santa on Christmas Eve but they still have a fair few houses to visit each night. Add into the equation those frail wings that can't fly if the weather is too windy or rainy and you can understand that there may be the chance that the tooth fairy may get delayed and have to visit the next night.
But ours is very naughty! We have already let her off the hook once for forgetting...oops, I mean getting stuck in bad weather,... but twice is unforgiveable. We have decided that she should most definitely be sacked.
Ours is also rather stingy and gives a mere 50 pence for each tooth (it used to be less but there was a bit of negotiation a few teeth ago and 50 pence was the agreed amount. Luckily she had left an extra few coins in mummy's purse recently so a bleary eyed mum retrieved some coins, gave them to J who was still crying inconsolably and once he had the money he didn't seem to mind so much that his tooth hadn't been taken and that she had not even offered a note of apology this time as she had last time.
I think we may well have to put a recruitment ad out soon to hire a new tooth fairy because I think ours has had her last warning now!
Linking up to Actually Mummy's Wot so Funee and Mummy from the Heart's R2BC (hope it's ok to link to two linkies as I've not done that before). The reason this tooth coming out is good news is that it has been a rotting problem tooth for a long time for J and he did need to finally go to the emergency dentist late at night to get it out (it may well have been the trauma and tiredness of that which contributed to the tooth fairy forgetting to come!) But at least it is sorted out now.
