Tooth Fairy Fix
Now I have a 7 year old daughter. Love her to death, she honestly brings joy to my life, but she kills me sometimes. She lost her first tooth a couple of months ago. Now she waited for this event forever. She has an older brother and had seen him getting money, so she knew what she was coming to her. She played with this tooth all day long, lost it I don't know how many times, and drove me batty. So we wrapped it up in a napkin, put it under her pillow and she had to wait. The tooth fairy must have had a hard time finding something the size of a pea in the middle of the night, because the next morning my daughter found it on the side of her when she woke up. From then on I knew I needed something different for her. My mom saw this idea and made a pillow just for her tooth. She loved it and so did the tooth fairy. It is now a ritual when one of my kids loses a tooth, they know it goes in the pillow and it does not get touched after that. The tooth fairy does not have to hunt in darkness for a tiny little tooth and my daughter has never woken up with her tooth still there again.
