So grown up and yet still so innocent.
I love it!
Captain Obvious lost another tooth recently. He thinks he is so sly now because he knows the tooth fairy is me. Of course I tease him and insist its not me. So when he lost the tooth he came and said “Mom, don’t forget to put money under my pillow.”
Right. Thought I. If he was gonna be like that there would be no money from me!
Well, Daddy came to the rescue and had a brilliant idea to give him a roll of pennies. He slipped them under Captain’s pillow bright and early then hustled off to work.
When Captain Obvious woke up he yelled, “Mom, the tooth fairy is a thief!”
“What? What are you talking about, just calm down.”
Apparently the very same roll of pennies that hubby took from the window sill in the kitchen had just been rolled by my toothless son. “That was my roll of pennies mom!”
“I’m sure there must be some explination.”
Scarfunkle joined in, “Maybe she ran out of money.”
Now, here was my chance, “Wait just a minute, how do you know the tooth fairy is a she?”
The boys looked thoughful for some time but soon came to the conclusion that it must be Dad then.
Shoot, caught.“Well,” I had to think fast, “I think you must not have looked well.
“I looked good but this was under my pillow. I’m telling you Mom, the tooth fairy is Dad and he just took my money to pay me.”
“You’d better go look more. Look on your desk, in your bathroom. EVERYWHERE!”
While he was looking EVERYWHERE I quickly penned this note…
…and miraculously was able to sneak it (along with some original money) into his room while the kids were looking in the school room.
When Captain Obvious found the note there was silence in his room for a good three minutes before he stole down to the main area with the most rediculous look on his face.
I managed not to die laughing and asked him what was up.
He read me the note.
His brothers though it was the coolest thing ever and for now, I’m off the radar.
Dad might still be the “alternate” but Mom is certainly NOT Tooth M. Ferrie
