I have 4 kids that range in age from 9 to 3 years old, so children losing teeth is a pretty common thing around here and will be for years to come. My 6 year old lost her 4th tooth today. And just after I told her to go find her tooth fairy pillow, I set my tooth fairy alarm.
What? Don't you have need of a tooth fairy alarm?
You see with life being rather busy and all, and the commonness of the tooth fairy visit around our house, sometimes I forget about the tooth fairy coming. So, now I set a calendar entry with 2 different alerts, 15 minutes and 5 minutes, before the time the tooth fairy typically comes to remind me to watch out for her visit. I hate it when I miss seeing the tooth fairy when she's here! I intend to print out my blog some day for my children to be able to read (and not feel so bitter about their lack of baby books or scrap books), so I won't reveal all her secrets, but that tooth fairy is really interesting to talk to! Talk about some crazy stories? Well, the tooth fairy has some good ones!
Anyone else have a need for a tooth fairy alarm? Never forget another visit! Trust me it is a bad feeling the next morning when you realize you've forgotten about the tooth fairy -- only happened once to me and I learned my lesson, always with the alarm now!
