It seems she swallowed this one too! In light of that the Tooth Fairy decided to play a bit of a game with her…

Dear Noelle,

So you are 7 years old and have lost your 8th tooth. And your sister now has 6 teeth??? This is almost too much to believe. Speaking of not believing – I’m not sure I buy your story about losing another tooth. Where’s the tooth at this time? I suppose you’re going to tell me you swallowed it again, right?

Okay, so I checked your mouth and you are missing a tooth. I guess that’s enough proof. Why are you hiding them from me though? Since you hid your tooth from me I hid the money from you. I hope you can find it!

Brrr, it’s starting to get cold here again. I don’t know if I like these different seasons or not. It’s not this cold where my family moved to. It’s actually pretty warm all throughout the year. That’s the good part. The bad part is I miss all my friends. What do you do when all of your friends live somewhere else? I’m making new friends though. That part is really fun. On top of that my dad loves his new job. I get to watch him a lot as he trains all of the new fairies to do their job.

I don’t have much time tonight. I spent most of it trying to find your tooth. I looked all over and couldn’t find it. You definitely found a good hiding spot for it. Wait until you see my hiding spot!

I enjoyed seeing you again, even if you were sleeping. Thanks for being my friend.

Sleep tight my little one. Until next time…

Love, the Tooth Fairy

I wonder how much longer she will want letters from the Tooth Fairy?

Tooth number 7? Here we go… The way I figure you’ve lost about 1 tooth per year. You are almost 7 aren’t you? I come by every so often to visit but it has been quiet around your house here lately. Why is that? You are never around during the day anymore.

I did notice one other thing – your sister has 2 teeth now! She is so, so cute. I was trying to check her teeth this afternoon and she slobbered all over me. She would have bitten me too if I hadn’t flown out of the way. She’s quite a character. She reminds me of you.

So where did you lose this tooth at? I was trying to figure out tonight but the only thing I heard was reading and SPCS. Now, what does that mean? Oh, how I wish I could see you and talk to you. We could be such good friends.

I don’t know how much more I’ll be around. My dad got a job transfer. He is now head of the Fairy Farm. This is where we all go to learn how to do our jobs. I hope they’ll keep letting me come see you.

It sure is amazing how things change over time. You’ve grown up so much. You seem so smart and creative. Before long you’ll be in school and I won’t see you at all. How did things change so much?

My dear Noelle, I’ll never see you face to face but I think about you often. I hope you remember me too. Please say you’ll always remember me and never lose touch. I’ll always remember you.

Sleep tight my little one. Until next time…

Love, the Tooth Fairy

And the saga of losing teeth and growing up continues… I love my family!

Six teeth already??? Please stop it! You have the weirdest way of losing your teeth! I heard it was coming out so I stopped by earlier this week but all you were doing was wiggling it around. And it came out in cantaloupe? Oh yeah, and who is this Tom fellow you keep talking about?

 You sure are growing up fast. Time flies (and so do fairies). I noticed all of your kindergarten stuff lying around and it made me tear up a little. Oh how I wish I could come see you when you were awake. We could have so much fun. They tell me it is against fairy rules though.

 I took a peek at your little sister tonight. She is so sweet with her bottom all bunched up in the air. She was a little gassy though. Whew! I tried to see inside her mouth but she had her thumb in it. You know that will make teeth crooked don’t you?!?

 Well, I must be going.  We’re going to Disneyland to see my cousin Tinkerbell and her friends.

 Sleep tight my little one. Until next time…

So #5 came out a little more quickly than expected.  I was taking my daughter’s shirt off tonight while she was getting her pajamas on.  Somehow the shirt caught the tooth and it came flying out.  I almost feel bad – it wasn’t that loose at all!  It came out really clean and didn’t bleed for long.  Oh well!  Here’s what the Tooth Fairy said…

******************************

What in the world are you up to?  Wasn’t I just here a few days ago?  And now you have another out?  I didn’t think you had any loose teeth in there…

So I did a little checking around and I guess it wasn’t your fault after all.  The fairies are saying that it was your dad’s fault.  They are saying he knocked it out when he was taking off your shirt.  Is that true?  I don’t know how things like that happen but that is too funny!  Maybe you should give him the money instead.

While I was here I decided to check on your sister and she still doesn’t have any teeth.  Your dad didn’t pull those out did he?  Your sister sure is a precious thing.  She looks beautiful, just like you did when you were a baby.

By the way, what is it with all that snow?   My wings are getting frost on them from all that blowing.  Tooth Fairies don’t normally dress for that kind of weather.  We would rather dance around in the spring showers and fly underneath the beautiful harvest moon.  I’ve got just one word for this weather – brr!!!!!

Sorry I can’t write much this time.  This was a quick stop on my way home.  I wasn’t expecting to be here you know.

Sleep tight my little one.  Until next time…

So we lost our fourth tooth.  Actually, our oldest daughter lost her fourth tooth but it was a family affair!  Man did she put up a fight.  The irony is that it pretty much fell out into my wife’s and and we all started laughing.

Here’s the letter that the Tooth Fairy left…

*****************************************************

My, oh my, oh my!  I don’t think I’ve heard that kind of racket in a long, long, time!  You sounded like you were in quite a bit of pain there.

I do hope you’re okay.  Things looked beautiful inside your mouth!

If I know children – and I do, I’ve been working with them for a long time – you’re probably just fine.  I bet you were fighting with your parents because you didn’t want your tooth pulled out.  Am I right?

There are times in life where parents seem like your worst enemies.  The truth is that there aren’t two people who love you more!  If they are like most parents they will love you no matter what and always look out for you.  I bet you have some pretty special parents too.

Speaking of special, what is that little bundle of joy behind the couch?  How cute is she!!!  I bet you are one proud sister.  There’s only one problem… she doesn’t have any teeth yet.  I wonder if I’ll be writing letters for her one of these days.

It sure looks like you have one amazing family.  I can’t wait to get back and tell everyone about the new baby.  We just adore little ones.  To be honest, they aren’t really that little.  They are bigger than me, and I’m full grown!  They are just little to the rest of you.

P.S. Why do you have a tree with lights growing in your living room?

Sleep tight my little one.  Until next time…

Can you believe it?  Our daughter has lost her third tooth already.  This one sort of caught me off guard so the Tooth Fairy was up late into the evening composing the text of this letter – and I think it shows.

I only hope this creates wonderful memories for her.  Maybe she will pass some of these memories and traditions on to her own family one of these days.  Who knew something so simple could bring both a child and the parents so much joy!

What family traditions do you celebrate?  What memories of growing up do you have?

Whew!  That was a tough one.  It’s about time.  I thought that tooth would never come out.  This one leaves a nice big gap in the front too!  It makes you look really cute!  Six years old and you’ve already lost your third tooth.  Just how many more do you think you’re going to lose?

I remember there was this one girl who had a tooth just barely hanging on.  She wiggled and jiggled it but it just wouldn’t fall out.  She was so scared to just finish the job.  She wouldn’t even let her parents touch it.  I thought I was going to have to call out the FairyFighters (This is the team of fairies we call to help with the teeth that are especially hard to pull out).  The FairyFighters came but fortunately I didn’t need to use them.  The tooth fell out while she was brushing her teeth that night.  The FairyFighters were a little disappointed.  It’s not very much fun to sit around all day.  They wanted in on the action.

I hear you have a sister on the way – or is it a brother?  Do you have a name picked out yet?  Does she have any teeth?  If she does, pull them out for me.  Babies teeth are so cute!  I bet you will make a great big sister.  You will have to tell her all the secrets about how to get the teeth out.  Show her how to brush good too.

Okay, so what’s the big idea!!!  First you don’t have a tooth.  Then you switch rooms.  Now you drop it in the pocket of a pillow.  I finally found it but it took me forever.  That is a cute pillow, by the way.  It is almost like my pillow back home.  Mine is just a little bit bigger and the blanket isn’t sown to the pillow like yours is.

All this talk about pillows makes me very sleepy.  I miss home.  I miss my family too.  Sometimes all of this traveling isn’t as much fun as it seems.  I do love the smiles on your faces though!  I think I’m going to head home now.

Sleep tight my little one.  Until next time…

Love, the Tooth Fairy

P.S. Tell your sissy I said hi!

So she lost her second tooth… This time she didn’t swallow it.  She sure did baby it forever though!  And sure enough, the Tooth Fairy didn’t fail.

Recently our daughter started kindergarten and moved into a new room all about the same time so that definitely caught the attention of the Tooth Fairy.

I sure do hope the Tooth Fairy never has writer’s block!

Boy, aren’t you a tricky girl.  First you hide your tooth and then you sneak into a new room!  Don’t worry though.  I found it.  What will you try next?

That tooth looks beautiful.  It makes me proud.  So did anyone have to pull it out or did it come out on its own?

As I was flying around tonight I heard some talk of you being in kindergarten.  Is that true?  I remember kindergarten very well.  We had a tooth chart just like you – except, we filled it up with teeth that we got from other little children like you.  Tooth fairies don’t have teeth you know, just wings.  For recess we would play tag with the cicadas.  They were ugly too – but we didn’t tell them that.

Your new room is very pretty.  The color looks beautiful in the dark.  I should come see it in the daytime while you are at school.  Maybe I’ll even hide in the corner and try to surprise you when you come home.

Sleep tight my little one.  Until next time…
