Letter to the Tooth Fairy

My daughter, (please, let her marry a wealthy man), just lost her first tooth. She left this note, in grey crayon, for the Tooth Fairy:
Dear toth fery
Can yuo giv me 20 dolrs?
Unfortunately for her, the Draper Tooth Fairy is a little absent-minded (as all my children know) and forgot to retrieve the tooth that night. In the morning, I saw her thinking deeply about something. She said, "The Tooth Fairy didn't come last night. [Ouch.] I wonder if it's because I asked for 20 dollars."
She's a thinker!

That darned Tooth Fairy is very forgetful! My daughter lost a tooth and took it that night to a slumber party with cousins. When I realized that she took the tooth, I was worried. Afterwards I asked her if the tooth fairy had come and she said "no" but she said that the Tooth Fairy also did not visit another cousin who had brought a tooth. Sadly for the cousin it was the second time, once at home and once at the slumber party. Maybe the third night for the cousin??? LOL

Hahaha! I love this story. My poor kids - they have never even heard of the tooth fairy. I keep forgetting.

My children have resorted to a sort of self help tooth fairy. Tragic.
