Tooth Fairy Alert: A Special Request

Hubby and I and 3 other couples just returned from a New Year's-slash-early 40th birthday celebration in Vegas.

I'd tell you what happened, but with that whole "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" pact you make when you get off the plane and all...

It's pretty much top secret.

Or completely boring.

Or completely amazing.

I'll just say no one was tattooed {I think} and there was no tigers in our room and we may or may not have seen Chumlee from Pawn Stars.

Okay. Done.

So we arrive home and drive to meet the family and out jumps my littlest K smiling with THIS FACE:

Holy toledo, the kid can whistle now...or stick a straw right through that gap....or...wait....how many teeth were in that spot?!

I don't know about you, but that is a massive void and the tooth fairy better be on her game because at the last dentist appointment the dentist said her adult tooth is WAY up there.

Like, she wasn't suppose to lose that tooth for another 2-3 months or so.

Like, that adult tooth won't be here for another 4-6 months.

Oh well.

Of course the excitement builds as she anticipates who will be visiting under her pillow that night.

Mom, does the toof {and yes, now she lisps} faiwwy bring other stuff besides money?

Like what do you mean?

Like a suitcase. 

Uh, what now?!

{Friend from school} got a suitcase thingy when she lost her tooth.

Like to pack clothes in for a trip?!

NO! Like the one I got with Rapunzel on it with whip gloss in it.

Ohhh! Yes, like a little tin lunch box!

Uh huh! Uh huh! {nodding crazily}

Yeah, no.  I'm pretty sure she only brings money.
 What's the tooth fairy bring in your neck of the woods?

    Oh, how I miss the toof faiwwy dayz. (Oops. Got a little carried away there.)

    Today we actually have Dentists visits! How's that for timing. I'm pretty sure I won't be hearing any braces suggestions, but I'm crossing my fingers any way.

    Well the tooth fairy bring money over my way. Just have to tell you that myf four year old granddaughter asked me if I would give her my dentures so she could put them under her pillow for the tooth fairy so she could get a bunch of my, LOL.

    Cold hard cash at our house. Works pretty well. Sometimes she forgets and we all suffer, but she's typically pretty consistent. :)

    How adorable! I can't say I've ever had any requests like this for 'our toothfairy,' and I do think I'd stick to cash... It's a bit difficult to sleep with a lunchbox under your pillow. ;)

    The tooth fairy always brought money. There was a time or two when the tooth fairy fell asleep or couldn't find the tooth. So she had to pay twice as much. :)

    awww I love this, I would make sure to provide her with enough money to buy one or buy one and give it as a tooth fairy gift. There are no rules when it comes to the tooth fairy. Is her Lisp like Cindy from the Brandy Bunch? So cute btw.

    haha, that's so cute! I really screwed up a couple years ago. I had just become a step mom to an 8 year old and she lost her tooth and I totally flaked on the tooth fairy thing so we just told her the tooth fairy must be running late and made up for it the next night. It was always money when we were young(and not very much) but we were kids and a quarter was like gold to us!

    It was always silver dollar coins or two dollar bills in our house.

  13. Tawnya said...

    It has always been money in my family, but my son has not lost any teeth yet. I teach preschool and it is amazing to me how much the price has gone up. Some kids are getting $5 or more now!

  14. flairshare said...

    That picture is priceless!!! Money is always expected though.

  15. Evelyn D. said...

    when i was younger we didnt do the tooth fairy thing. we just threw our teeth away, i didnt even know it was something widely done

  16. Heather Kelly said...

    My son is 5 1/2, he should be losing his teeth soon. I can hardly wait!!!

  17. Marysa said...

    My daughter turns 6 in 2 months, we are waiting for her to loose teeth! I don't even know what the 'going rate' is :)

  18. Elisabeth said...

    I love it! Only $ here too.

  19. Joy H said...

    What a cutie! Hope she enjoys her tooth fairy money :)

  20. Mary said...

    My son was a little weird. He hated the idea of the tooth fairy reaching under his pillow, but he didn't complain when he found his money under there!

  21. Katharina said...

    Only money here... my daughter was always nervous about some fairy person flying into the room when she was sleeping. I'm glad she didn't consider asking for something besides money... it may have made for a lumpy pillow if it was too big. :-) Katharina

  22. Kayla Rice said...

    Coins here. Maybe I will give them some dollars at some point. :)

  23. Shelly Peterson said...

    too cute! I've only ever givin momey, but its usually quarters. For some reason growing up my mom put our tooth in a cup of water instead of under the pillow, I know kind of weird, but I do the same with my kids

  24. Jenn said...

    Very cute. We leave dollar bills. When my first tooth fell out, my grandparents happen to be visiting,and I woke up to a Little People's castle at the foot of my bed. Score!
