Sometimes, The Tooth Fairy Sucks

A very excited Journey ran into my room yesterday with a huge smile, and holding something behind his back. “Guess what’s in my hand”, he exclaimed. I was already aware; his newly toothless grin gave him away. Not to mention he has been wiggling his front tooth non-stop for the past week. However, I played along, claiming ignorance. He then revealed a tiny tooth. I asked if he was going to leave it for the Tooth Fairy, and he replied “I think the Tooth Fairy got fired, because the last time I put my tooth under my pillow nothing happened”. OOOPS! In my defense, we are in a recession and sometimes layoffs are necessary. No one is safe, not even the Tooth Fairy.

The Tooth Fairy was rehired for a one time engagement, and left Journey $2.

Very cute. My daughter will not pull her teeth out.. she literally lets them fall out. The last one came out in her sleep. I can sympathize as I really hated it also!

We made a sign for the door "Ozzie's tooth HERE" with an arrow. Then we put the tooth in a baggie and taped it to the sign. NO WAY was that ol' tooth fairy going to miss that thing!! If the tooth isn't in the baggie, then the Tooth Fairy can't find it (too much mess in the boys' room, I said).

Your son is precious. You letting hair grow or keeping it real short for summer? One of mine can...not...grow... hair. He has fuzz. period. fuzz.

The boys usually request two haircuts, 1. Mohawk 2. Almost bald. Anything longer usually results in little boys with crazy hair cause they NEVER comb it.
