First off, let me just say that after reading your comments on my use of the paper clamp to fix my hem, I did NOT use this
as a “temporary” fix. This did NOT buy me more time to get my butt and my beloved pants to the tailor!
And let me tell you, I did NOT have about 4 hours of insomnia the other night. If I did I would NOT have make things worse by laying in bed thinking of good nursing stories to share with you. Counting sheep may have been more relaxing!
Ok, before you go, you know how I said I was a “natural tooth fairy”…
Well, you be the judge…
My precious little children are not paid in ½ American coins and ½
The children’s tooth fairy does not do this so they cannot compare their loot to their friends.
Cheap? Not Me! (I mean Not their Tooth Fairy!)
Okay, do NOT think less of me, but…
Once upon a time this tooth fairy did NOT fall asleep while waiting for the little cherub to fall asleep. I was NOT awakened in the morning by a sad little face at my bedside …oh no! what to say to this poor little kidling? what to say?…
I did NOT say…
“Oh sweetie, the tooth fairy did not forget you, no, it must be that special time of year, yep, it must be the… the… TOOTH FAIRY CONVENTION”
(Slight relief crosses child’s face…)
“Yes, sweetie, once a year the tooth fairies have a big convention and when that happens the tooth fairy comes the next night… and guess what?! … The tooth fairy pays double when they do come! Yeah!”
(Big smile on little darling’s face.)
Whew… wipe brow…dodged that bullet!
After that, I did not start doing a special little tooth fairy trick…
This tooth fairy does not go in for the good nights kiss and slip her hand under the pillow, grab the little tooth and then slip the coins under in return. No, not while my childen are awake!
No, that would be too risky! Not me, it would have crushed the wee ones to find out MOMMY was the tooth fairy! Not ME!
I am so excited to be off to see what you did NOT do again this week on “Not Me Monday”!
