So, I learned what the tooth fairy is afraid of

Today, I was told what the tooth fairy is afraid of. It started off as an innocent conversation between myself and my five year old daughter who has recently lost a tooth. She couldn't wrap her mind around the fact that she had to be asleep for the tooth fairy to take her tooth. I don't blame her at all, I mean, it's got to be difficult to fly around at night collecting teeth right? I've also spent a lot more time thinking about this today than I ever did as a child.

My daughter asked what the pretty winged, flying fairy wants to do with a bunch of old teeth and my response was pretty simple, we all have our things, I said. Some people collect bottle caps, others collect teeth. She of course wanted to take it a step further and ask why she's scared to come into her bedroom at night unless she sleeping. The conversation went as follows:

Natalie: I want to see the tooth fairy
Me: You can't see her
Natalie: Why?
Me: ummm beeecccaaaauuusssseee........she's scared of people, she won't come if people are awake
Natalie: oh, can I just leave her a note that says I'm nice
Me: Yea sure, we can try that
Natalie: orrrr maybe she's actually scared of you mom
Me: mayybeee I didn't even think of that
Natalie: I think she's scared of boobs....yea, she's scared of boobs is what it is

That could kind of almost be a children's book, she's so creative!

If that is the case she better avoid Washington D.C.

LOL. Something's obviously weighing on her mind! The tooth fairy doesn't want to be caught because if she is, she might be asked to provide a wish and that would take time away from collecting teeth. One of the toothpaste firms has a set of videos and games on the internet, the name is Nurdle or something similar. They ask you to sign up to their list (!) but it's free and the games are reasonable, with stories you can download and make and do crafts as well as on line games. If you search for Nurdle toothpaste you will find the manufacturer's name. The last time I was on the site (quite some time ago, there was a video or story about the tooth fairy.

Yes, there is definitely always something on her mind. I've come to find that out! Thank you for that idea! I love crafting ideas and games and such!

Very cute. My brother told my kids that the tooth fairy was building an enamel castle.

ha! That's cute, my imaginative little booger would want to see a picture of the castle! It would be an excellent picture in a children's book!
