“Mum!!! Whatever you do while I’m at school….. Don’t touch my pillow!”
Still waking up I reply, “Ok but why?”
“My tooth is still under it.”
SHITTTTTTT!!!!!!! The effing tooth fairy never came!!!!
“Oh, Girl Child! Didn’t the fairy come?”
Inner voice in my head was really tearing the tooth fairy to shreds! How dare that winged wagon forget my Girl Child!! Is it not in the job description to come and take that yucky tooth away and leave a few coins?!
Outer voice was calmer while hiding the stupidity of forgetfulness! I mean as a single mother I really have nothing else on my plate! Shame on me!
I did sneak a look under the pillow while Girl Child was in school. Yes, the tooth was still there in all its glory. But wow, look at that! The silly fairy had left the coins under the sheet instead! The heat must have gotten to her! All is forgiven!
The loot hasn’t been discovered yet. Roll on bed time!!!
