Letters to & from the Tooth Fairy

Missing teeth are so IN this season

JediYeled lost his second tooth in three days – both top front teeth so he’s got that classic ‘hole in the front’ look.  They were both really loose but he wouldn’t let Ima or Aba touch them.  He knocked the first one out while playing with a foam pop-up toy (much to his surprise).  The second one seemed like it was going to be in for a while, but the tooth fairy had other plans.

At tonight’s Cub Scout Pack meeting, all the boys got apples as treats for their game playing.  JediYeled was very disappointed that we didn’t have a knife to cut it up so he could eat it right away (since he couldn’t bite it with the one loose tooth.  I was able to bite out a large section for him and he tried chewing the remainder of the apple, and soon afterwards, he came up to us saying that his tooth fell out!  Luckily he was blinded by the excitement to the lots of bleeding from the gums, so we dodged a bullet on that one! (he’s a big blood-phobe)

For the first front tooth a few days ago, the tooth fairy brought JediYeled at gold dollar coin.  Tonight, JediYeled wrote (well, dictated) the following note to the tooth fairy:

Dear Tooth Fairy

I’m really excited that I lost my tooth. It was funny that I lost two teeth in a couple of days.  I lost my tooth at Boy Scouts tonight.  I was eating an apple when it popped out.

How do you carry so heavy things?

Thank you for the last money and I can’t wait for what you give me this time.

Love, JediYeled

The ‘so heavy’ comment was about the relative size of the dollar coin and the size of the tooth fairy.  JediYeled’s tooth fairy is a boy, naturally, but he was still curious about how strong he was.

Here is the response the tooth fairy left:

Dear JediYeled,

I didn’t expect to be back so soon!

It is funny that you asked about carrying heavy things because I was still tired from carrying that heavy coin last time, so I brought you a magic power ring instead.

I am happy you lost your tooth but I think you still won’t be eating apples for a long time.

Love, your tooth fairy
