Don't Let the Kids Read This...

Punkin lost another tooth over the weekend. It was loose late last week, and she sat down to write the Tooth Fairy a note about it.
Dear Tooth Fairy,

I love you. You are so nice. My tooth is very loose.

Are you tired?

Are you big, small, invisible?

Do you live with Santa Claus?

Do you wear a pretty dress?

What tells you when there is a tooth under a pillow?

If you would like to write me letters, you can.


The Tooth Fairy took some time out of her busy schedule today to formulate (and print off on a printer so no one would recognize her handwriting) her reply. That reply should appear under Punkin's pillow sometime tonight.

Part of me feels like I'm being mean to perpetuate this, and part of me would feel really bad for not answering her letter.

And part of me knows that if she got that letter dusted for fingerprints, I'd have a lot of explaining to do...

Kelli--you shoulda worn gloves--then there are NO fingerprints!! Don't you watch CSI??

That is so sweet! How old is Punkin now? I think i started asking Santa Claus questions like that when I was about her age...Mom explained that with all the children all over the world he wouldn't probably be able to answer me, but on occasion he did--in my next-door neighbour's handwriting too, come to think of it!

Hugs to you my dear! I hope you haven't been too busy recently!

What, you didn't buy the $10 one?

Bad mommy, no chocolate for you!

Just kidding, here, take two for your troubles.

Wait. Are you saying YOU'RE the tooth fairy??? GAH! I can't hear you!

Circus Kelli said...

Effie - I know, my bad, huh? Hugs right back at you.

Kittn - Thanks! Wait, someone ate my chocolate...

Eclectic - Um, no, well, I didn't just come right out and say that directly, did I?

*wonders if the Tooth Fairy wears boots*

Circus Kelli said...

Mr. B - Hmm... We should have asked her that, too...

LadyBug said...

Awww, you made me smile this morning. Love and hugs to you and your sweet clowns, CK.

Bone Machine said...

I was wondering if the Tooth Fairy wears a feather boa.

The time is not right uncle Doug said to slay the precious things of childhood.

Punkin's letter is so profound for an eight year old, at least I think so.

Kudos to Mom !

Of course you perpetuate it as long as you can. Kids have what, eight years (stretching it) when they can suspend disbelief and be filled with wonder and joy on a daily basis. As we get older, life conspires to suck all our wonder away and make us work for every ounce of joy we find.

Oh, we can experience wonder, and we do find joy. But remember when it was so easy? Anything you can do to stretch that time out for your kids will be a reward in itself.

Our tooth fairie pays according to how clean the tooth is. She's weird that way.

Circus Kelli said...

LadyBug - Aww. I'm glad. Right back at you, doll.

Bone Machine - Only for special, more formal occasions.

Doug - I agree with you. ;)

Nilbo - You're right, of course. She's already 8-1/2 and I can't imagine it will take long before she's asking pointed questions about The Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and The Tooth Fairy, too.

Lynn - Yeah? Hmm. Our tooth fairy pays a flat rate.

Kelli, Santa & the Tooth Fairy would always leave my kids notes. If the kids took the time to write them notes, or if something they were really wishing for wasn't going to happen.

Santa had a cool red glitter pen and the Tooth Fairy had a gorgous violet glitter pen. They both wrote in the best as could be caligraphy (old high school books would be unboxed for the occasion). They are all kept in their respective baby books.

I hope one day they get a kick out of them.

AND, I'm wondering how my teeth Bloggy and Bone have left in their mouths right now!
