World's Worst Tooth Fairy

I'd like to think that I'm to a point in my life where I'm mature enough to recognize my own faults.  Well, I'm here to tell you that I am, in fact, the
World's WORST Tooth Fairy
Don't feel bad for me; I mean if there was one isolated incident that led me to this realization, then I would understand your need to contradict me.  However, I have proven this fact over and over and over again.  Examples:

Tooth #1:  I dressed up in all black, so that if I accidently woke him up, he wouldn't see me.  Only that I did wake him up and now he thinks that the tooth fairy is this big scary monster that dresses in all black.

Tooth #2:  I forgot all about the tooth and as we searched for the $1 that the tooth fairy should have left, I threw it under the bed and told him that it must have fallen out from under the pillow.

Tooth #3:  He never got anything for it, I forgot so many times that he forgot too.

Tooth #4: (Last night!)  I was DETERMINED not to forget this time.  I had stayed up late, working on homework, cleaning the kitchen, making throw pillows for his new bed.  Jumped in bed and forgot to play the role of tooth fairy.  LUCKILY, I woke up around 2:00 to use the restroom and realized that I had forgotten.  I didn't want to turn any lights on, so I grabbed my cell phone and dug around in my purse for a dollar bill.  I found one, slid it under his pillow and went to sleep.  This morning Daniel woke up and ran into the kitchen to tell me that the tooth fairy left him $10!!!!  Wow, I freaking give up! 

Every time I fail at being a good tooth fairy; I've some how proven to myself that I'm not a good mother.  Maybe it was my subconsious that grabbed for that $10 bill, knowing that Daniel deserved some sort of compensation for the Tooth Fairy's previous mistakes.  Or maybe...I just need one more chance to prove that I can do this and that I can do it right!

**However, I do take pleasure in knowing that I'm a pretty great Birthday Planner, Easter Bunny and Santa Clause!**
