A Confession

Son number 1 lost a tooth and both J and I fell asleep and didn't perform our tooth fairy duties and Eldest Son was pretty despondent when he woke up to find out that the tooth fairy did not visit him.....

AHHHHHHHHH
I AM A HORRIBLE MOTHER.

So. Putting another dollar into the therapy fund then will go and put glitter on the DOWNSTAIRS window with some money (I usually do glitter from the boys window and all over their pillows -- so they see the fairy dust that the tooth fairy left behind...ok so sometimes I am a good mother) any way, I will also leave a note from the tooth fairy that the dog barked and scared her so she left his stuff there instead of under his pillow and she had gotten enough teeth that night so didn't need anymore and he could keep his.

I hope that works?
I could do it tomorrow, but I don't want him to think he was forgotten.
sigh....parenting is hard, especially when you flake on stuff like this!

I love it! A note from the Tooth Farie! Maybe the Tooth Farie could encourage him to store his tooth in a glass of soda for a week to scare him about the evils of soda? Or that might be pushing it.

OOPS!
Hope the window thing works for you, I think it probably will! Good luck.

OMG, you should be stripped of your mothering awards and kicked out of the club!

(I've forgotten before, too. Of course, I've usually screwed my chances at Mother-of-the-year by January 5th... so I'm no example to live up to!)

when I finally coerced C into letting the TF in the house, I did the same thing. Forgot all about it. Don't fret, you are not alone in your suckiness.
