The Tardy Tooth Fairy
I'm kind of a forgetful mom. Oh, I remember to pick the girls up from school when necessary, and I pay the bills on time and I usually make it to all the dentist appointments. But when it comes to certain things, I am the worst.
The tooth fairy that visits our house tends to be just as forgetful. I fear my children have had quite a disappointing experience with the tooth fairy, because she tends to let a tooth sit for at least two weeks before she replaces it with money. Such forgetfulness is inevitably followed by awkward questions:
"Mom, do you think the Tooth Fairy didn't see it?"
"Mom, why didn't she take it?"
"Mom, are you the Tooth Fairy?"
All questions that one would THINK would remind said Tooth Fairy to get on the ball. Well, keep on thinking that because it doesn't happen. The worst part is, by the time the boys start losing teeth, the Tooth Fairy's mind might just be gone completely.
My poor deprived children.
