It's Official

I get the worst mother of the year award.

Gremlin #1 (she's 6) lost tooth #5 yesterday. Actually, she pulled it out herself, which I find very strange, but that's a whole other topic. She was quite excited, stuck the tooth in a plastic baggie and slipped it under her pillow. In my mother-stupidity, however, I forgot about the blessed event when I went to bed last night. Needless to say, she awoke this morning very upset to learn the tooth fairy had not visited and that her tooth was still under her pillow.

I'm wracked with guilt.

Dumfounded, DH and I scrambled for answers. Luckily, the bright girl gave us an out when she announced she'd been awake every hour last night waiting to see the tooth fairy.

Voila! That's why she didn't come! Because you were awake every time she tried to take your tooth!

Not sure she's buying it. Good ol' mom already screwed up Christmas when Santa used the same wrapping paper that we do (uh...gotta be smarter next year), AND put toys in gremlin #2's stocking that gremlin #1 helped Daddy pick out for the boy.

I'm in big trouble. And now I have to go read her a few chapters of Prince Caspian to make up for my utter stupidity.

OMG, I did the same thing with the tooth fairy one time. I urged my daughter to go back and look again, maybe she'd missed it. Meanwhile I grabbed my wallet, realized I had NO change, just a dollar, wadded it in my hand and went to help her look.

While she was searching between the comforter and sheets, I dropped it behind the head of the bed. She finally found it and figured she'd pushed it off the bed.

Whew! That was close!

I'm crackin' up about the wrapping paper!

I actually wrote an essay about that and sold it to One of my first piece for them. Will let you know if I can find it. It happens to everyone!

Teri's right Eli; it happens to everyone.

My husband is our "Tooth Fairy" around here, (because he's usually the only one with loose change in his pocket!) and he's forgotten several times.

I read your blog to my kids about poor Gremlin #1's plight and they thought it was cute then they proceeded to tell my DH and I how they used to be awake sometimes when the Tooth Fairy would come in and they would pretend to be asleep, then as soon as my DH left the room they'd snag the money and count it! The little rats! LOL

They've never believed in the Tooth Fairy or Santa because we never tried to convince them that they're real, so I guess that's good for us and them in a way. But I've forbidden them to tell their cousins that Santa's not real because their cousins still believe even at 10 and 8 years old. That's just too much work for me! LOL

You're a great mother and you have very good kids. You're there for them and that's the most important thing. A little small change missing once in a while isn't going to ruin the good work you and DH are doing with those cute, smart little Gremlins!
