It’s true, a certain almost six year old lost his first tooth a few weeks ago. All-the-while he was soooo overly excited…his momma shed many many tears.
Why did I not realize that this stage of life comes so fast?
I thought I had at least a few more years before we started talking tooth fairy visits.
What I quickly realized after he jumped with joy from excitement…was that I had no idea how to become the tooth fairy.
Which is not good when your child looses their tooth approximately 43 minutes before bedtime.
And so, I wanted to share with y’all what I managed to bust out in the fastest tooth-fairy-comes-to-life-event ever documented. Ok, not ever.
But I’m a planner by golly. I need more notice. You hear me teeth?!
Thankfully one of my best friends read my facebook status that evening…
…and no she didn’t give me the phone number of the closest laundry fairy.
But it just so happens that she made a free printable for occasions just like this. Ones where moms aren’t prepared for what seems to be a pretty huge milestone in a 5 year olds life.
It’s a good thing someone’s got it together. Phew.
I was also extremely glad that some of my parents friends gifted my boys these adorable alligator tooth fairy pillows.
I never knew just how handy they would be.
I found them on Amazon for $14.99 here just in case you want to purchase them too!
Last thing I want to say to all you lovely parents out there who don’t like to carry cash on ya? Once your kid turns 5, you better start having a few dollar bills laying around. Or at least a coin.
If the tooth fairy showed up with the fake “reward bucks” I give out for good behavior…I would of had one very upset tooth fairy recipient.
We went with the big ole’ $5 bill and a quarter. I included the quarter because P Man kept telling me that the tooth fairy brings coins. I didn’t want to ruin his dreams.
And why $5 instead of $1? Because this sista had no dollar bills on her. True story.
Because this is a huge milestone in my soon-to-be 1st graders life, I had to document with a video. Of course.
