Confessions of a Bad Mommy

First of all, SHHHHHH, don't tell my kids that I'm the tooth fairy.

Now that we got that out of the way.......

On a Mommy scale of 1 to 10, 1 being the most pathetic mommy ever and 10 being world's best mommy ever, how awful is it that my son lost a tooth and excitedly put it under his pillow only to find it still there this morning when he woke up?

He better hurry up and get to sleep so I can go all tooth fairy and not forget again.


  1. My parents did that to me once, too. Don't feel too bad.

  2. I do it all the time. It's a running joke in my family. Bud even found a really funny poem about it in a book of his, and he took to hanging it on the refrigerator as a reminder to me every time he lost a tooth -- it didn't work. I still forgot.

    My kids have always known I'm the tooth fairy, though, so it's easy for them to chalk it up to Mom's Normal Forgetfulness -- I can imagine it's a lot harder if they actually believe!

  3. Uh. Yeah. I forgot the FIRST time. I officially take the cake as worst mom. I made a last minute pick-up/delivery that went undetected by Mase, but still. There were ALMOST life long scars...

    You're still supermom in my book. :)
