The Tooth Fairy doesn't exactly have the greatest repuation in this house... in fact many complaints have been made.
Yet, despite her attendance or lack thereof, teeth continue to come out.
She is currently 2 teeth behind.
Tonight, after asking Muffin to put something away in my jewelry box, she discovered the stash hidden secretly in the back corner. All the baby teeth that I had been saving... (just couldn't bare to chuck them!).
'Mom! Why are there teeth hidden in your jewelry box??'
'Never mind, and let the dog in...'
So I played the game of distraction, because I just didn't know what to say. She is 9 after all, and this charade will not last too long.
A few minutes later, I overheard her telling her brother....
The verdict? (according to them)
I stole the teeth from the Tooth Fairy.
Yes, I am officially known as the "Teeth Thief"...
(go ahead and say that 3 times fast!)
