That's what I get for trying to be non-sucky mom.

My son came home with one of these again today.

Which, you know, means he lost another toofusus.

I threw that sucker away before he could stick that needle in my arse cheek like he did last time. Just in case you were wondering.

Anywho, the tooth fairy in this house has a habit of forgetting to visit. Over and over and over. And over.

Well, come heck or high water, I wasn't going to forget tonight. I went in as soon as I thought they were sleeping.

Let's just say I was wrong.

Let's just say that my son flew to sitting position faster than a bat out of you-know-where, right when I bent down to slip a buck under his huge pilla.

Let's just say his huge noggin (it's a virtual planetoid) hit me right in the mouth.

Let's just say I screamed out a very loud "$%*&!!"

Let's just say I am ashamed for such a loud expletive.

And here I sit with my front teeth feeling slightly loose and a fat lip. So, I'm kind of in a bad mood.

This tooth fairy stuff can suck it.

all i can say (after I finish giggling) is that i agree. The tooth fairy really has a hard time at our house too...my kids have resorted to writing notes along the line of, "dear tooth fairy, so I put this tooth under my pillow for 3 nights now...when are you coming." Yeah...even that doesn't work.

That's too funny!! When I was little, my mom had a 'tooth pillow' that we would put in the living room or dining room...basically any room other than mine! It was a little heart pillow with a pocket for the tooth & money. It was actually pretty cute. Apparently, it was a really great idea! Maybe you can come up with your own cute tooth holder craft? =)

Bwhaahaaha! Sorry for your pain but I was more concerned for the little bloke's belief in what fairies usually say!
My li'l grandie scored $10 once 'cos the fairy had no small change in her purse. Boy was she disappointed with the next tooth.

I love tooth fairy stories. My niece kept her tooth and replaced it with a pebble under her pillow. My sister caught on and the tooth fairy left her a very punishing note. She never did that again.

We always had battles with our son and brushing his teeth. You know, he said he brushed them but he really didn't. So, one year we forgot to leave money too. When our son came to us with the tooth and said he didn't get any money for it (because we forgot), we told him the tooth fairy only took clean healthy teeth and apparently she didn't want to pay for his yucky unbrushed tooth (although he had probably brushed it). He looked puzzles, sad, brushed the little tooth and tried again the next night. Tooth fairy took it and we had less battles with brushing his teeth.

Oh, ouch! I feel your pain. Not that that's happened to me, but you know what I mean. The tooth fairy usually forgets around here, too and is known to leave money is weird places. Wear a helmet next time, just in case. ;o)

Oh oww...motherfriggin' owwww....

My son was a very light sleeper.

The tooth fairy that visited my house was practically a yoga contortionist for the sake of the tip-toeing.

Emily said...

that is hilarious! I haven't had to do the tooth fairy thing yet, but after that story I am looking forward to it!

I always forget! Good thing Conal remembers.

LOL! I am glad it isn't just me! I hate being the toothfairy! I usally say,"Oh yeah she gave me your dollar. Here ya go!" They don't care they just want the money!

Dude, sorry about your lip and your tooth. Ouch!

Leca said...

Ha! We just had an ooopsie this morning for the bagillionth time ourselves. My mister had to "find" the dollar that had mysteriously fallen on the floor. Our daughter believed it thankfully enough. I always swear I'll remember and I never do.

Jane said...

LOL I'm not laughing AT you I'm laughing....okay, I'm laughing at you!!! :D The tooth fairy ALWAYS forgot around here too especially by the time child #4 went through it all. So when she would come out disappointed in the morning I would just say the toothfairy must have been very busy last night and she's running a little late but I'm sure she'll be around soon...and while she was getting ready for school, I'd slip in and do the exchange! All was fine then.....

Audra said...

Awww! That is sweet. My mom had a tooth fairy pouch made out of satin that she put our tooth in and under our pillow.

My kids had a tooth fairy pillow that I left on the bed next to them so I wouldn't disturb them...thankful they were heavy sleepers!

Jen said...

He is getting so big. I think he looks more like Jeff. I love the glasses. Lucas was just saying the other day that he wishes Jamison was still here so he could have his friend back to play with.... Awwww! We do miss you guys! Wanna come out and visit?

Teri said...

That sounds like Murphy's Law right there. Maybe trying to be a good mom isn't worth it? ;)
