The Tooth Fairy

by | Apr 20, 2008 | Baby News | 4 comments

This Morning Rascal lost his very first tooth!!! He is so excited!

Although, he was a bit concerned when he realized that tomorrow is Sunday.

You see, the tooth fairy forgot once when Capitan lost a tooth doesn’t work on Sunday. I reassured him that since it was his very first tooth, the tooth fairy might just make an exception!

Thank goodness that daddy the tooth fairy is back in town!

Captain lost another tooth this past week when hubby was out of town. On top of that, our sweet little 2 year old (who will be three tomorrow!!!) lost it! Before bed, I helped Captain write a note to the tooth fairy explaining the “missing” tooth. However, I woke in the morning to Captain standing there next to my bed waiting for me to wake up. As soon as I did, he said, “Mom, the tooth fairy forgot!” (Me to myself: OH NO!!! ARGH!!) Me, to Captain, “Are you sure? Why don’t you go to the bathroom and then we will check!” He said ok, and I quickly transformed into Houdini–I jumped out of bed, ran out to my desk for my purse, I only had 2 pennies and a $5… I grabbed the $5 (lucky kid!), ran to his bedroom, grabbed the note (which slipped out of my hand and is still under his bed–which reminds me, I better get it before he finds it!), I slipped the $5 under his pillow, ran back to my room and jumped back into bed, just as he walks out of the bathroom. It had to be less than 2 minutes all together. Whew! Anyhow, I then “woke up” and got up, and together we went to his room. He looked under his pillow… “OH! It must have been too dark earlier for me to see… Or maybe the tooth fairy was running late!” I replied, “Oh! Wonderful!”

I’m such a bad–totally forgetful–mom!!!!

Maybe we better start letting the tooth fairy know that we have a tooth instead of just hoping he’ll show up! What do you think??

    Ha Ha! You made me laugh. Try setting a timer when they go to bed for an hour. That always helps the tooth fairy “remember” it’s time to come.

    Haha! This was so funny I had to read it allowed to Andrew! We did THE SAME THING on Friday night. TOTALLY FORGOT and then I had to tell Christopher that the TF was so busy that night that he was running behind. So when he was eating breakfast, I did my job. Lucky for me I had a $1!

    This is great!! I love it when I am not the only one to do stuff like that! Our tooth fairy regularly delivers during the day due to her busy night schedule!

    Have I told you about the tooth fairy forgetting THREE nights in a row on TWO seperate occasions for the SAME child??!! Terrible tooth fairy here in New Mexico!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure.
