The Tooth Fairy has proved popular on the blog

When I say popular I mean in the makemeadiva blog’s own limited way. The search engines provide hits at least once a week on the tooth fairy post, she who comes with a bag to carry the teeth and the dough, this idea being my eldest’s the time before last she lost a tooth. She lost another last week and in an awe-inspiring display of 6 year old logic she has decided that no bag would be suffciently capacious and no fairy strong enough to fly with bags of teeth and money. Her new theory is that the fairy carries a wand and turns gnashers into coinage of the realm. Amazing stuff, let’s hope she goes far.

A more concerning footnote. My youngest daughter, soon to be 5 but still only 4 had to be sedated today and suffer a tooth extraction. Aside from the guilt a mother feels when her own child’s gnashers turn out not be entirely perfect pearly whites I am now burdened with the sin of tooth fairy fraud. The clinic did not return the tooth to us, and so relieved was I that my daughter was ok I never even thought to ask about it. Fortunately I have presented her with a tooth that belonged to her older sister (tooth fairy forgot to turn it into money and I had to step in!). She is none the wiser, I am just worried that when the wand comes to turn the enamel into gold coinage the magic won’t work. You see the imposter is a canine and the real one was a molar. Let’s hope the tooth fairy can’t see in the dark. That’s why I picked this tooth fairy to illustrate my point – I find it a comfort…

  1. Poor girl! Hope she’s ok.

  2. She is made of sterner stuff than I am. The fairy took the fraudulent tooth though and that is the main thing 😉
