The Tooth Fairy

Just before Christmas, The Girl lost a tooth. I know, very careless of her. (In fact it was a huge relief when it finally came out - both The Children have very tenacious baby teeth, which cling on even beyond the point at which the adult teeth have come through and most self-respecting baby teeth have conceded that their time really is up.)

Naturally, The Girl wrote a letter to The Tooth Fairy and put it under her pillow with the tooth. I was fortunate enough to see it.

    Day Tooth 5 Tooth five (That has come out not with dentist)

    Dear Tooth E Fairy,

    Please take this fifty pence with your own one in extange of 1 pound.

    The Girl xxx

    P.S. Please leave leave this note here and reply.

    P.P.S. What is is your is your name name?

    P.P.P.S. Please leave me a club penguin code coin that has not been used.

    P.P.P.P.S. As a present, take the little umbrellas.

The Girl was fortunate enough to receive a reply. (This may be due to her foresight in leaving a very small pencil under her pillow with the note.)

    Dear The Girl,

     Thank you for the umbrellas. I'm sorry,
     I don't have any club penguin code coins.
     Here is £1.

     Love from
          the Tooth Fairy

     (my name is a secret)

I expect she would have written more but it must be hard to lift a pencil, even a very small one, when you're only little fairy.

By the way, lest it be thought that The Girl is after all a Girly, Fairy-loving Type, here is the picture she had drawn on the other side of the letter:

Fierce Ninja Penguins and Puffles. That's my The Girl :-)

It's so sweet!
The tooth fairy that visited our house used to leave a little trail of fairy dust (looked suspiciously like very fine glitter) and she too had a short correspondence with my daughter who had written with questions. Like 'what do you do with all the teeth' and 'how do you get in my room'
Love the way that an un-girly girl is still taken with the idea of the fairy - or is it more the £1 and Club Penguin code coin (what on earth is one of those?!)

Oh, those lovely little memories! I think you can file this one under "why I scrapbook"

Fabulous! DS wrote a long letter once when he lost a tooth and had to plead for money anyway!
DS did Club Penguin a long time ago! DD still does Webkinz.

Children are just brilliant, aren't they?!

May much good fortune befall this wonderful The Girl, who is so business-like and straightforward and engaging. And of course, good fortune likewise to The Mother.

That's Great! I've got one or two of these put away.. teeth too. We had the "I lost my tooth down the plughole" letter as well.
The latest treasure was the Letter To Santa.
At age 12, I don't think he really thinks there is a Santa, but he wrote a very good letter anyway - Insurance, I think it was!
That's definitely a Keeper though! Like Sian said, one to note down in your "Why I Scrap" notebook.

Heather said...

what treasure! I wish my DS would develop a liking for the written word :(
He is an excellent reader but refuses to do any more than is necessary & thats homework & nowt else!!

Amy said...

Isn't it gorgeous that even though she isn't girly she is still at an age where she thinks there is a possibility that the tooth fairy just might come and visit .... very thoughtful to supply umbrellas!

Rachel Brett said...

How lovely, I can't wait for those cute little things with Adam. What a sweet letter to keep.

I love the drawing! Such a great note too.

The tooth fairy is really lame in our house, often not arriving for days after a tooth has been lost. But you know, just like UPS she gets backlogs sometimes.

Love the letter...what a great memory to be able to keep.
