Rocky lost a tooth last night and made a point to inform both Dickidoo and I of the fact, proudly displaying the pearly white in a gallon sized freezer bag.  She also indicated that the past two times she had lost a tooth, the Tooth Fairy had neglected to visit and reward her for the cavity-free offerings.  With my paycheck considerably smaller now that I am only part-time employed I made sure that both Rocky AND Dickidoo were aware that I was no longer in charge of arranging the Tooth Fairy's visits.  Dickidoo rolled his eyes at me but instructed Rocky to place the huge plastic bag containing her tiny baby molar under her pillow... where it remained until she removed it this morning.

At 6:45 this morning she shook the bag in my face and informed me that the Tooth Fairy was fired effective immediately and she would find and hire a new, more reliable Tooth Fairy for any future missions.

Rachel is 11.  She does not believe in the Tooth Fairy.  However she DOES expect to find a coin or two underneath her pillow the morning following a timely  dental loss.  Needless to say she was not very happy when she left for school this morning.  I on the other hand have the pleasure of giving the Tooth Fairy 'his' pink slip.  Poor Dickidoo!  Hahahaha!

That sort of happened to us when Samantha was 6.  I had litteraly forgotten that she had lost a tooth.  That tooth cost me $5.

no tooth fairy??  ooooh myyyyyy.. next you will tell me there is no santa either!!

It's almost a little sad when a child doesn't believe in things like that anymore.. it's another step to adulthood.. which may or may not be a good thing lol
