Fairy Thanks

We all know I suck as the Tooth Fairy. I am glad to say I feel like Iím in good company. The guilt has receded!

However, I will say, my Mom and TGOO did NOT suck at being the Tooth Fairy. I loved her so much, I even sent her a note! TGOO saved it, scanned it and sent it to me yesterday.

I do believe my drawing skills have not changed much. They may have actually deteriorated.

Fortunately my writing abilities have improved. I wrote this when I was 6.

I do have some debate in my head as to whether this was after the first tooth I ever lost. TGOO pulled it out and it flew out (he pulled our teeth out with string) and it promptly got lost in the shag rug that was of course 'in' in 1972. Mom and TGOO vacuumed the room finding the tooth in the dirt in the vacuum bag. The proverbial needle in the haystack.

Hubba saves things like that note. Don't you wonder what else she has?

I'm not sure I want to know. I know for a fact she has our teeth. I was kind of surprised they hadn't disintegrated!

I am also surprised your teeth haven't disintegrated. I had put one of my son's teeth in the pocket of a coat last year. I found it in December and it broke into pieces when I opened the napkin it was in.

One of my boys wrote a note like that.
Except, he requested a photo.
The Tooth Fairy responded by dotting his note with little blue stars. Because apparently our Tooth Fairy doesn't write in English.

(It was years before I got to use any of my blue stars again... just in case he'd recognize them!)

Mom doesn't have my teeth, she gave them to me. The molars have broken but the others are just as they were.

You were lucky, Dad only used string with you, I got the fork, the door knob, the pliers...I was just one big experiment for "how many different ways can I pull out a tooth."

When I had a loose tooth, Dad would punch me square in the mouth. This is the first I've mentioned it...

I hated the tooth fairy, mainly because of how I usually lost my teeth.

So *that's* what the tooth fairy looks like. Excellent rendition, Bou!

The fact that they still have that after all these years just proves that TGOO & Hubba are awesome!

I came home from the Army and the only thing my dad hadn't sold off for salvage was my Yearbooks.

I so admire your parents. Not that mine were terrible, just not quite "family wired" like yours are.

I am taking notes...
