Forgetful Tooth Fairy

The dreaded happened….I woke up yesterday morning to hear my sweet Davis say, “Mom, the tooth fairy forgot to come.” The disappointment in his face – gut wrenching. I consoled him the best I could with tales of how the tooth fairy had too many teeth to get to last night and she probably didn’t get to our part of the world last night. Surely she would start here tonight. It worked pretty well until he came home and told me that his friend (who lives right by us) lost a a tooth yesterday and the tooth fairy came to his house. Dad saved that one with, “well maybe when she was here you were about to wake up and she didn’t want to get caught.” Yes! Good save John! Davis is sure that is what happened since he said he was trying to catch her last night! Phew!

I decided we needed a note from the tooth fairy so I made up a little note, printed it, and sprayed it with glitter.

Then I rolled it up and tied it together. Our boys always get a toothbrush or floss from the tooth fairy too. I think they look forward to that more than the actual money!

You can download the letter yourself! The download includes a second blank frame so if you want to write your own personalized note you can.

Hopefully the tooth fairy will be a little more diligent tonight!

    My son is 11 yrs old. He lost one of his baby teeth a few days ago and kept forgetting to put it under his pillow,until last night. I totally forgot 🙁 and he was so upset this morning it crushed me. Thanks for the “Tooth fairy is late” note. I hope it will cheer him up when he gets home today!
