tooth fairy? no way!

My dearest tooth fairy,

To meet you is a pleasure
And a pain at the same time;
I’ve been waiting since last September,
School year ended and you didn’t stop by.

For eight years I kept my tooth clean;
Brushed, flossed and rinsed.
Only for yesterday to say
Good-bye in blood and in pain.

I hid my special tooth under my pillow,
But you must have read my mind;
You forgot to put a dollar and
Left my tooth for me to keep forever.

Mom said to try again tonite,
But I refused to let it go.
This tooth was loose for years,
And when it finally left my gums,
It left a mark so painful I decided to keep it with me forever.

I’m sure you’ll visit again,
I have more teeth for you to keep;
But this one you can’t have,
It’s for me to treasure.

I got overwhelmingly busy this morning that I forgot to put a dollar under my 8yo's pillow this morning! So when he woke up, he came downstairs smiling because the tooth fairy didn't take his precious tooth. I told him to put it back under his pillow but he said, NO WAY! This was too painful of a memory to just give it to the tooth fairy for a dollar!

  1. That is a great poem, sorta' funny that your son decided to keep the tooth..Kids grow up so fast...I just hope we won't lose our teeth, too as we grow old :) Wonder where the fairies are when we do? :)

    Thank you for visiting me today and blessing me with this award. Thanks for your thoughtfulness. Congratulations to you! God bless you and your family. May your dad continue to recover in the Lord's strength.

  2. It's a rite of passage, isn't it --losing the front teeth? :)

  3. I don't blame him for wanting to keep the tooth! I'm sure it is worth much more than a dollar to him. : )
    Thanks so much for the award. I love to read your blog. You always have such uplifting posts.

  4. How cute..he wants to keep his tooth. How sentimental of him!

    And thank you for the award, my friend!!!

  5. I remember that moment of realization that I had forgotten the money. I totally hid it under my other daughter's pillow and then suggested that because she sleeps in her sister's bed sometimes that maybe the toothfairy stuck it there by accident. She believed it!

    My girls always wrote letters to the toothfairy to ask if they could keep their teeth. The toothfairy always replied back by saying that that was fine.

  6. @rcubes - that's so funny! Yeah - where are the tooth fairies when we get like "Benjamin Button", haha!

    @Buckeroomama -- welcome home!I guess my little guys is getting older....

    @Pam, my little guy actually said, "priceless!"
    - no money can buy, lol!

    @Alicia, you're welcome pal! I think my little guy wants to make it difficult for the tooth fairy since it took weeks for that very loose tooth to finally come out - and painfully!

    @Chocolate Covered Dreams - thanks for the tip! My 8yo was sleeping at his brothers' room so I can definitely use that alibi!

    Peace :)

  7. Thank you for the award sweet lady. That is my biggest fear to forget the money under the pillow. My youngest is just now starting to lose we go again. I love these time with them.

    Hope you are well. Have a great day!

  8. That poem was so sweet!! How adorable that he decided he'd rather keep the tooth!!! My daughter just lost her first one and it never dawned on me to let her keep it!!! I did stuff it away in my nightstand though because I couldn't bear to let it go!!

  9. That was such a lovely poem.


  10. thanks for the award jenjen... my son right now has his first two loose tooths... he can't wait for them to fell. I have no idea when they are going to come off, your son's took a year?! don't know if Robert can be that patient!

  11. @Lori, thanks for the visit - as always!
    @Helene, my 8yo kept his in the jewelry box..
    @Veronica, thanks for the ((((hugs))) - yours, too!
    @Leyda, my 8yo's tooth was somewhat loose for a year but took that long for it to finally say bye-bye..

Completed my first 16 Week IsaBody Challenge: Believe You Have A Purpose

My family is what matters most to me.  I’m 51 and a mother of 4 (ages 14 – 26). I wanted to be healthier, more active and stronger not just for me, but for the people I love.  I wanted to set an example for my family that we each possess the tools to master our wellness and vitality. I've always been petite except when I was pregnant ( when I gained an average of 50 pounds per pregnancy - 4 times!) Over the years I had tried various diet and exercise regimens, and I did enjoy a degree of success, but the results were not to the level I hoped for, and they were somewhat short lived.   Achieving stable, long-lasting results proved stubbornly elusive.    Then when I hit menopause everything became more difficult.    My body stopped cooperating altogether, and I was constantly grumpy. My waist and hips expanded and I found myself napping in the afternoons.    I started to accept the idea that there would be this new, less vibrant version of me. I just completed my P

SPICE-up a young child's development: social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional

Children are the precious gems of a family. When they’re young and innocent, they are like sponges that willingly and quickly absorb any knowledge and emotion. That’s why at an early age, we encourage our children to read, be creative, be happy and feed their curiosity. With all the technology and instant gratification that children get from playing video or computer games, asking a child to read a good book has been a challenge for some parents .     “Your children are not your children.       They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.       They come through you but not from you,       And though they are with you, and yet they belong not to you.       You may give them your love but not your thoughts,        For they have their own thoughts.        You may house their bodies but not their souls,        For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,        which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.” -                     Kahlil Gibr

Immigration and Family: Will my mom ever get to see my daughter walk down the aisle

Last year when my father passed away in the Philippines, I went home and took some time to visit the U.S. Embassy in Manila to ask what the options are for my mother to return to the U.S. The consul reminded me of the 10-year travel ban. That on or after November 8, 2015 — not earlier – or 10 years after my mom, was deported in 2005 for overstaying her visa, I can email the U.S. Embassy and inquire about my mother’s approved petition. I asked if I need to file another petition, and she informed me I didn’t have to. I asked if I could… and she stopped me and said to ask everything on or after November 8, 2015. This is where I am, and where my thoughts are drifting as I celebrate this month my 16th American birthday. I am counting the months, the weeks and the days. My daughter is getting married in January 2016 and I would love to have my entire family, especially my mother, to be here when that momentous occasion happens.

Helping others surpass their goals and expectations

"It's not about the end goal. It's who you become by consistently pushing to the edge of your limits." - Robin Sharma Do you ever wonder why you stumble on new things?  Do you ever wonder why unsuspecting strangers cross your path? Do you ever wonder why your mind takes you to a direction you didn't think exist? I was walking to StarBucks to meet my husband when I noticed a sign...

Still shaky, skidded in snow, but so blessed my guardian angels are looking after me!

"Never again wonder, what to be thankful for..."   - Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life It’s yet another snowy day in New Jersey. Beautiful, yes but dangerous! In line with my goal for this month is to get back on schedule. I got up around 4am to get my 15yo ready for his Model United Nations conference. (Thankful that our neighbor offered to drive him to school by 5:30am ) I got my 9yo ready for school and I'm thankful that my other neighbor offered to drive him to school. I then drove my husband to the train station to Manhattan. I decided to stop by the Community Center and decided to run a fast 5K on the treadmill. I was 1 mile short because I was so sweaty and hot. (Note to self: dress lightly next time) While cooling down inside the car, I read Day 14’s chapter of Rick Warren's the “Purpose Driven Life” book. I felt really good because it just reminded me that there is always something to be thankful for no matter how awful yo
