I’m going to make this short and sweet.
How am I expected to keep up with Santa Clause, the Elf on the Shelf and now the tooth fairy? I’ve pretty much become a big fat liar all in the name of “magic”.
Thank goodness The Plan is now in on the Elf thing because according to him I’m “slacking” in that department. (I keep forgetting to move the darn thing so he’s stepped in to help so I can stop making up stories about why the Elf is stuck. )
Yesterday though just took me over the edge, Baby Girl lost a tooth. Literally. It fell out of her mouth and into the great abyss of her classroom never to be found. She got home worried that she would not be making any profit off this tooth and decided to write a note to the tooth fairy explaining the situation.
This morning she woke up and immediately looked under her pillow. Nothing. I completely forgot. The tooth fairy had not come. So what do I do? What I do best. Make up some story about how she forgot to put the note under her pillow and how things under pillows is what makes the tooth fairy’s bell go off so she knows to come and check. ( Maybe I should do something constructive with my lying and write children’s books).
Baby Girl bought my story and will try again tonight by putting the note under her pillow. All I have to do is wait till she’s asleep, pull out the note, leave some change, and remember to move the F ing Elf. Sounds simple right?
