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!**
