The tooth fairy has a bad history at our house.
He/She doesn't come for days on end.
Tonight that is going to change.
I talked to one of my friends about their family's tooth fairy and she told me that once, their fairy forgot to visit for over a month.
Guess how much that child received when the fairy finally visited?
Yeah, a lot.
I guess that fairy must have had much guilt.
Our fairy probably doesn't feel guilty yet, probably just shame.
I'm thinking mr. b might do well tonight.
I'm also thinking that an enterprising child might use the delinquent fairy situation to his/her financial advantage.
Here's the plan:
-loose the tooth
-quietly, while everyone's distracted, make the "guess what?" announcement
-hide the tooth
-once a week, while everyone's distracted, make the "no tooth fairy visit" announcement
-after a sufficient amount of time, make that announcement in a much louder voice, stressing how long it's been since the tooth came out.
If that child lived at my friend's house, they'd make some serious cash.
One week from tomorrow morning, miss h and miss s are scheduled to each get four wisdom teeth removed.
I don't think the tooth fairy's going to go for those.
I think their mouths might have already tapped out their tooth fairy accounts.
Especially after their procedures.
I guess we'll see.
Alright, I've got to go check on little mr. b.
