    Pulled a lose incisor on my little girl yesterday evening and that darned tooth fairy didn't put any money on the pillow.

    Of course I slipped some dinero to mom and she put it under the 'far' pillow.

    Dontcha know the tooth fairy doesn't want to wake you up?

    I'm just not the best at being the tooth fairy.

    Go figure.

    I always gave 4 quarters, tied into the corner of a baggie, replacing the tooth that was tied into the corner of a baggie.
    One night I didn't have quarters and had to tie a $1 bill into a baggie. My daughter cried when she saw it! And she didn't buy the excuse that paper $ is easier for the tooth fairy to carry.
    I had to break a 1 for the fairy [​IMG]

    I suppose it's cuz I'm the one that usually get's the money after the tooth is pulled.

    When I was a kid my family always did the tooth in a glass of water. We were the only family that the tooth fairy did this with. I think it was easier for the tooth fairy not to wake the sleeping child. Of course we never got cash money....

    Well, I was going to say that but I didn't want to point out that you have a career slightly more lucrative than my own.

    Easter morning the kids woke me up and cried "The Easter bunny forgot us!"

    Thankfully, after the kiddos sadly went to make beds, get dressed, brush teeth, etc., etc. we noticed a plastic egg on the table (just can't figure out how we missed it [​IMG] ) with a clue inside that led to the mailbox. The mailbox had an egg with a clue that led to the sandbox, which led to the trampoline, which led to the chicken coop. And wouldn't ya know, that silly Easter bunny left their baskets in the windows of the coop! Whew! [​IMG]

    Hehe, we did that on my son's B-day... and wrote all the clues in RUNES... with a single rune in the corner.... after finding his small gifts per each clue then he had to translate AND unscramble the overall clue that led him to his big gift. The kids had a BLAST... one clue was "Where does A keep his dustbunnies"... under the bed... stuff like that.

    Never thought of doing it for Easter though... hmmm *wicked grin*

    I figure there's a reason that fairy has wings. God knows I can't walk through their dark room without stubbing at LEAST two toes and of course that means chocking back the *bleep* so you don't wake them.

    We use the gold colored Sacagawea dollars for teeth. The kids call them Fairy Dollars and no common greenback is an acceptable replacement!

    The Kinder Major is ten now and has long since realized who the real source of her Fairy Dollars is but she still plays the game. After all, you disrespect the Tooth Fairy and you don't get no more Fairy Dollars!

    Which reminds me I need to go hunt some more up.
