My daughter, S extracted 6 of her teeth last week. And uptill today, she's still awaiting the tooth fairy.
The last time she extracted 4 of her teeth, she only put one of them under her pillow, but the tooth fairy left her $10.The tooth fairy usually leaves her $2 a tooth. She had wanted to put another tooth the next night, but her brother brought her other teeth to school for show and tell and lost them. So, she did not get any more money for the rest of those teeth.
This time round, she again put one tooth. But the tooth fairy did not come. She was really disappointed.
She is already 12, and she still believes in the tooth fairy and santa clause(!!). When I asked her: You mean you still believe that there is a tooth fairy?
Her reply was: Yes! If not, how else can I get money for my teeth?
I then told her that maybe she was not being honest with the tooth fairy, and the tooth fairy realised that she had planned to trick him like the last time hence did not visit this time.
So, the 2nd night, she put all 6 teeth under her pillow.
Again, no money. So I decided to tell her the truth.
I said: I guess the tooth fairy has been working very hard, especially with the hols and so many children getting dental operations this few days. So he is probably very tired and is at home snoring the night away. As for his wife, the tooth fairy god mother, she is also fast asleep as she doesnt want to be kept awake by his snoring, so she makes sure she is fast asleep even before he gets into bed.
See! I never lie to my kids!
So, do you think the tooth fairy should be visiting soon?
