tooth fairy troubles..

In the hub-bub of reading all the new material from the first day of school, along with getting dinner ready and just a general "fullness" to the house what with my Parents and Sister and her son here....
we lost the tooth that my son lost at school!
It was a pretty depressing scene when we went to go to bed and we couldn't find the tooth. So, I suggested that we write her a note. My son had said how she probably knows when teeth fall out because a bell rings or something. But he felt really bad that his tooth wouldn't go into her collection. After much discussion and persuading, he finally wrote her a note:

Dear tooth fary,
I lost my tooth. I can't give it to you. I am sorry about your collection.

Luckily the tooth fairy is a smart girl! How do I know? Because when he woke up this morning he had a note back....it had a picture of a tooth printed on it and it said:

Dear (insert my son's name)
Thank you for the note. I did hear my bell ring when your tooth fell out....And I even saw it go into the trash can by mistake. Don't worry; I saved it before it was too late and now it is in my gigantic collection of teeth. Keep brushing and flossing The Tooth Fairy

:) enjoy your day

Such a creative Tooth Fairy!!! And how wonderful that they both love school and their teachers.

I'm always so sad that by Middle School most kids have lost that joy of learning...and it's mostly OUR fault (teachers, that is). Or maybe a combination of children getting wiser, more independent, less compliant and teachers unrealistic expectations of perfection. After all, few first or second graders fail to bring out that maternal "aaw, isn't he/she cute?" in us, even when they're naughty. But fifth and sixth graders aren't quite so darling sometimes.

I gotta remember that this year -- 7th and 8th graders really can be obnoxious at times. Gotta remember that they are just BIG children who need as much love and care as the first graders!!

I left a comment on my blog about Shelfari. If it doesn't work, email me -- click on my profile page for the direct email.

So sweet! I like the bell ringing...I didn't know the tooth fairy heard a bell!

Such a smart kid you got there! Because the tooth fairy does hear something like a bell -- okay, it's really a ting-ting-ting she hears, courtesy of her trusty tooth-o-finder. It tings every time a tooth drops!
