Tooth Fairy Stomping


The Tooth Fairy crept into Nick's room last night, slipped her hand under his pillow...and he sat up. So, she quickly fixed his blankets and pretended like she was just checking on him. About 20 minutes later, my husband (wearing his wings and throwing glitter)crept into Nick's room and...he woke up. So, again with the bed adjusting and good nights. About 30 minutes later, Mr. Tooth Fairy snuck in again and SUCCESS! Mission accomplished. Four shiny quarters for a teeny-tiny tooth. I took it and hid it so well that I will have no doubt forgotten where I put it next time the TF visits. Just like I did with the last one. It's around here somewhere.

Anyway... early this morning, our toothless son comes into our bedroom carrying his flashlight. My husband is getting dressed and Nick asks him to empty the pockets of his jeans.

"Why?" my husband asks. A reasonable question, I thought.
"I want to see if you have my tooth," came the reply.
"Why would I have your tooth? The Tooth Fairy took it."
"No, I think you have it," he says, rooting through my husband's jean pockets, examining everything with his flashlight.
"Why would you think daddy has it?" I ask.
"Because I heard a lot of stomping around."

Oh.

I have no idea what he's talking about, but I have a feeling the magic is gone. My husband was definitely not stomping and Nick was definitely asleep when the switch was made...

It makes me a little sad. :(

That stinks! He's suspicious! I had a heck of a time making the switch myself! I went to a little thing hanging on the outside doorknob after I struggled a few times.

The tooth fairy was supposed to leave a note....did she? That may take away the suspicion.

Lunhatikk said...

Naw that's so sad. Storme still fervently believes in the tooth fairy and he's 10! He's so sweet in his innocence... however I might have a little to do with his continued belief seeing as one time I FORGOT to exchange his tooth for money and while he was disappointed it didn't stop his belief especially seeing as I 'wrote the tooth fairy an email' and he got one back apologising!

THEN can you believe it?! I forgot again last teeth he lost, not only did I forget the first night but the 2nd and 3rd nights too! OMG did I feel bad!! So I typed him out a letter from the tooth fairy apologising. He was so wrapped, he also got extra money for the delay.

Tooth fairy's (his is called Mr Bucktooth Fairy) excuse was he was on holiday visiting his family in Canada and had a 'relief tooth fairy' taking his place and she missed his name ;)

The things I'll do to keep the innocence and magic alive. I hope he never resents me for it lol. I'm all for magic.

Lunhatikk: Do you think your 10 year-old might be milking you for more money? Just kidding! His innocence is so refreshing this day and age.

On the brighter side, Nick is a smart kid.Ü Cheer up dear. You and your hubby are such good parents to him.

The Peach Tart said...

Nick is growing up.

brainella said...

He's suspicious but does not have proof. :-)

Daffy said...

I'm with brainella...he's probably just hoping to find some reinforcement that TF is REAL! I love the wings and throwing glitter. I can picture my hubs doing that -literally- LOL...

Last year my neice decided she was going to write a letter to Santa outlining everything she wanted. She then hid it very very well...her momma couldn't find it. It was the neice's theory that if she still received what was on her list then Santa in fact was real and if she didn't, then she had her suspicions confirmed. She held fast the little bugger, and didn't peep a WORD about anything on her list. It made everyone a little sad but now she's in on helping keep the magic alive for her little sister....

Just make sure you're consistant with the amount you leave. My first clue was that when I was at my parent's house I got a few quarters for a tooth but while I was at my grandpa's one summer I got a few dollars. And of course hide those teeth!! I found my teeth probably the time after grandpa's.

Shannon said...

He's one tough cookie, hard to fool. But I think there is still hope. I agree that consistency in the future will convince him. Good luck!!

CanadianMama said...

I LOVE that your hubby wore wings and threw glitter - hahaha!

The Waylaid Wordsmith said...

Awww, that is a little sad. Why do they get old SO FAST?

Tattoos and Teething Rings said...

Oh no! Don't let him grow up, do something!

Noelle said...

oh no! we avoided this by having the kids put their tooth in a special glass with water in it on the kitchen counter. in the morning, the water and tooth would be gone and in it's place would be money. worked great until hubby drank it one year... ;)

panamamama said...

My middle one is at the same stage...

Nicole said...

Aww! I'm glad I still have a few years before I have to start planning out how to make sure she believes in all of those things.

By the way, I have something for you on my blog!

That One Mom said...

Bittersweet. I don't have much tooth fairy time left either... And I'm not sure that Santa's gonna fly this year, either...

Amo said...

Ah, well it is going to happen eventually. It stinks that they have to find out the truth and all the magic is gone. I remember when i found out there was no Santa. A boy at school told me when I was in second grade. I wasn't angry though b/c I still got presents.

Christie O. said...

hahahah! ok well he's onto something and that's sad! why do kids grow up so fast!

Conquer The Monkey said...

he's too smart!!!!

Tiaras said...

aww - yes, too sad!!

Amanda said...

Wait. My husband always wears wings and throws glitter.

And we don't even have kids with teeth. Is that bad?

Neva said...

Hahaaaa, this has so almost happened to me. I am the tooth fairy in our house. One time I forgot and my kid freaked out on waking to a missing tooth and NO money. While I was helping her look I snatched the tooth that had fallen on the floor and dropped the folded dollar. Bada bing!
They have also pinned their tooth bag to their pillow and that was a feat in contortionism to get it out without waking the little monkey!

Nahl said...

No, no...no way, is the magic gone! The tooth fairy was a bit ill so she couldn't leave her magic in the room! She must return-she MUST.

abby jenkins said...

Ah the age of innocence...I think this certainly calls for some hidden glitter somewhere...

Susan Fobes said...

I was such a lousy toothfairy (forgetting the payments on at least two consecutive days!) with my daughter that I finally had to fess up. My son still believes but I am not sure for how long... It is sad, isnt it?

Unknown Mami said...

Aww, that's too bad. RIP Tooth Fairy.

Mrsblogalot said...

Start talking up Santa...maybe all is not lost yet!!! (-:

Noelle said...

good morning! i have something for you...come by and check it out!

Momma Such said...

I was so bummed when my oldest stopped believing. However, he does still pretend b/c he LOVES the fun in it, so that helps me. :)

Clueless_Mama said...

I can't wait for these days, but I too will be so sad when it is gone. Maybe you were able to save the magic??

The Penny-Pinching Mama said...

awww! That is sad. I'm looking forward to the Easter Bunny, Santa, the Tooth Fairy - and God knows what else!

He probably doesn't want to come out and tell you he knows for fear that he won't be able to cash in! lol

Elizabeth said...

That's okay the magic is gone. It's kind of nice, as a kid, to know that your parents go through so much trouble for your imagination. I remember when I found out Santa wasn't real...I was like, gee, Mom sure does hide a lot of crap in her closets.

Nezzy said...

That tooth fairy can be a noisy little booger!!!

Have the best day filled with blessings!!!

Sissy said...

Busted!

jenie said...

i'll try to keep this in mind so when my Anya loses her first tooth i can accomplish the feat nicely ;)

SPEAKING FROM THE CRIB said...

i will get back to read this post! promise! i'm just so stinking far behind! ahhh!

SPEAKING FROM THE CRIB said...

this tooth fairy has a bag full of teeth - somewhere. and i am loathing the day when the magic is gone!

thanks for visiting me over at the crib for pee pants day and i also had an evil teacher who spanked me and made me pee my pants

damn you mrs hard! evil teacher with an evil name

Holly said...

Oh man. Ya think he was just playing you to see if the tooth fairy exists or not? That is young to not believe.

Michele said...

Aww, that is a little sad that he is getting suspicious... but glad to hear hubby didn't get busted.

I'm not looking forward to the "magic" being lost either... although I do always feel a little "pang" of guilt for lying. Funny mix of emotions

Hope you find that other tooth - you're too cute! My aunt did the same thing with my cousin's first tooth - he's 47 now, she still can't find it, but she still searches for it every once in a while. Cracks me up everytime ;)
