We are suckers for good tooth fairy tales. The following story comes from a family in John and Heather's home town. (For privacy, the character's names are changed to "Mom" and "Daughter.") :)
Midori Yamada, "tooth fairy"
IT WAS A MAGICAL DAY when Daughter lost her first tooth. Mom told her to place it under her pillow while she slept so the Tooth Fairy would collect it and leave her a bit of money. Daughter was very eager so she did exactly as Mom instructed. Unfortunately, Mom forgot about the Tooth Fairy that night. In the morning, Daughter asked her mom why the Tooth Fairy didn't come. Mom, hoping for a path for redemption, told Daughter the Tooth Fairy sometimes needs two nights to get it all done.
THE SECOND NIGHT, Mom woke up at 4am and realized she still hadn't put the Tooth Fairy's money under Daughter's pillow. She fumbled for her wallet, opened it and reached for two $1 bills. Careful to not wake Daughter, Mom quietly tucked the bills under Daughter's pillow. Pleased with her work, Mom fell back asleep.
The next morning, Daughter flew open her bedroom door and exclaimed, "Mom! The Tooth Fairy brought me $21 dollars!"
"Mom! The Tooth Fairy brought me $21 dollars!"
Sorry, Mom. Daughter got the jackpot with that one. :) Send us a tooth fairy story of your own and we'll be glad to feature it!
