The Tooth Fairy Rides A Motorcycle

Little Miss is officially without her two front teeth. She lost the first one on Thursday at school, and the second one came out last night. She's quite proud, and I have to admit that she's pretty cute without them. The morning after her first front tooth, she proudly announced that the Tooth Fairy had given her a quarter from Arizona, and she was thrilled.

Last night? Ahem.

I have to admit that I was once again down all weekend with a migraine. In fact, the only reason I even knew that Little Miss had lost a tooth was because she came (quietly) into the bedroom to tell me that she'd lost it and proudly display her grisly trophy. My husband, thankfully, took charge and insisted on finding a different state quarter for her. He went through his change bottle and discovered one from South Dakota that he put aside for her.

This morning, she announced that the tooth fairy didn't come.

Oh, that's too bad, Sweetie, I consoled her, while mentally wringing my poor husband's neck. What do you think happened?
Oh, she announced with no hesitation at all. Mister Man already told me that it was too windy for her to get her on her motorcycle. She has to wait until it's safe to ride it before she can come.

Huh. Who knew.

This afternoon, I made a quick visit upstairs to her room to verify the location of the tooth. It was under her pillow, as usual, and it again had a note included with it. I'm pretty sure the Tooth Fairy is going to tell her that she can't grant the power to fly, but ummmm how exactly do I bring this up with her to find out why she needs to fly and who and how she is challenging (which is what I think the note says.

So how did you kids - or how do you - show their imaginative skills?

Haha, you know me... I like to imagine that I have fairies that come to my house and help me out! That is so cute of Little Miss with the Fairy's motorcycle and her wanting to fly! I wanted to fly, too, when I was little, but I think if you offered me the ability to fly now, I'd want an injury-free guarantee to go with it. BTW, we also had a few 'almost forgotten' tooth fairy visits. I can relate!

LM is fantastic...I just love how she keeps you guessing...
I would write back and tell her that unfortunately it's not in the TF's power to make her fly....she's just in charge of teeth...I'd keep in short and sweet...
ah, kids are grand...

Sandra - I actually used to dream ALL the time when I was a kid that I could fly. I believed I could. I suppose I'm lucky that I never tried....

Holly - She totally does. I did write back. Did you know the Tooth Fairy has VERY tiny writing because she's so small and writes in green gel ink? No flying. And she's yet to bring up the flying conversation with me. I'm a little afraid ;)
