I'm sure it will be a positive trait someday.

Olivia, made the mistake of losing a tooth over the Thanksgiving break and found herself without a visit from the Tooth Fairy. Two nights in a row.

She was more than a little irritated.

I told her the Tooth Fairy was probably on vacation. Perhaps she'd eaten too much pumpkin praline pie right before bed and couldn't tear herself away from her cozy, cozy pillow until at least nine each morning.

Total stab in the dark.

She didn't buy it. Not one little bit.

Last night, I found this note on my pillow...my cozy, cozy pillow.

DEAR MOM:

I'M PROBABLY ASLEEP RIGHT NOW BUT IF I HAVEN'T TOLD YOU ALREADY; (She didn't use the colon, I added that. I don't even know if i used it correctly.) IF THE TOOTH FAIRY DOESN'T COME TONIGHT, I WON'T BELIEVE IN HER ANYMORE.

FROM: OLIVIA

Is that a threat? Uh, yeah, ahem, the Tooth Fairy got off her duff and made an appearance last night with a cool crisp dollar and has cemented Olivia's belief in the little twinkling lady once again. At least for a little while.

And I think she's gotten, burp, rid of all the pumpkin praline pie.

What a hoot! Gotta love her gumption! We've forgotten TF too many times, too. Now, we just give her a ring on her cell phone in the morning and remind her to come with an extra 25 cents for the heartache. A little fairy glitter on the pillow and an extra quarter works every time. :)

I tell my kids that they need to write a note to remind me to call the toothfairy. :-)

We've forgotten the tooth fairy too...the next night my son left a note for the tooth fairy and, if you can believe it, the tooth fairy wrote back. Who knew?

Our problem seems to be an extremely forgetful tooth fairy. Not sure how to fix that. . .

we have experienced a similar thing in our home ... the tooth fairy does need to tear herself away from the pie on occasions ...it is amazing though we sometimes find the dollar has been hidden in other places .. we say the TF didn't want to wake them and hid it by the back door or under a pot ... WORKS EVERY TIME ...lol
