Fairies

In our house there are technically two Tooth Fairies and two Elf On The Shelf helpers-- have been for years...Technically.

However ONE of them is out of town.
THE ONE that actually remembers they have a job. THE ONE that actually remembers to do that job- BEFORE the kiddos search, look, seek, become disappointed, cry and get boohooish.

And unfortunately because the slacker is the one home, and a tooth has gone missing and the tooth fairy was LATE, and Fiddle the Elf has been "watching" us for several days without moving, the eldest child of the house has personally recruited herself into early "helper of the magically creatures of the joint." Sad, but true.

Don't be too hard on the backup elf. Sometimes elves lives are as busy as our own.

my poor kids lost faith in the tooth fairy a LONG time ago. The youngest has resorted to placing the tooth in a bag and taping it to the wall with a note begging her not to forget "this time" Ahhh, such a pathetic fairy she is!
