Tooth Fairy Chaos PG-13

Well, it has been a big week for us. Between school starting, Thomas's birthday, and my own inner struggles...needless to say, our hands have been busy. Well, while I was out doing some last minute school shopping, Hazel lost her first tooth. That was her first mistake. I think I needed to see the blood for it to register with me. I tried to make a big fuss when I got home, but my performance probably lacked enthusiasm. Well, the night rolled around and I went to bed. I woke up to a soft knock on my door. I cracked the door open, and there was Hazel. She said, " The tooth fairy didn't come." in a shaky voice while tears welled up in her eyes. I made up a passable excuse for the Tooth Fairy. She felt reassured. Then I remembered she had slept on the couch. So I ran to her bed and put the goods and a note explaining how she couldn't find Hazel or her tooth. Then I sent her to check her bed. She seemed relieved. I felt terrible. I am officially going to snap out of it.

Clever, Katie. Hazel lost her first tooth before Gus! He's gonna be upset.

I have almost always forgotten to play tooth fairy and have had to tell all kinds of lies to get out of the mess.
Congrats on the house. When do you leave?

The tooth fairy usually thinks my kids teeth are too yellow to take. She has passed on quite a few.

Um... Good save... But... Can't Hazel read this blog?

Our tooth fairy is VERY busy and quite often doesn't get to a lost tooth for a week...sometimes never. Very unreliable...I think we need to get a new tooth fairy.
