tooth fairy? no way!

Thursday, August 20, 2009

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..
