Cara’s Official Letter from the Tooth Fairy

Filed Under: Gifs, Life

Tuesday I picked Cara up from school minus a front tooth.

She had pulled it in the bathroom–and didn’t even cry–and then promptly lost the thing.

This put Tucker and me in a spot since we didn’t have a tooth for the “Tooth Fairy” to retrieve and then replace with money.

Wednesday was Cara’s class’s book fair day. Tucker and I decided the best course of action would be to have the Tooth Fairy tell Cara the Tooth Fairy couldn’t give Cara money since Cara lost the money but Cara should buy a book.

Note from Tooth Fairy

The next morning, Cara was annoyed at the lack of cash but seemed excited about getting a book.

When I picked her up from school that afternoon, Cara skipped to the car carrying her tooth safely zipped up in a sandwich bag.

We officially had a problem.

Cara had gotten the book from the Tooth Fairy even though Cara didn’t have the tooth. Now she had the tooth and the kid was looking for her payday.

Tucker’s response:

With the letter, Cara got a dime and two pennies. She didn’t even look at the letter but she was overjoyed by the change.

Hotel Transylvania facepalm

    Too funny! Glad she was happy with the outcome 🙂

  2. That letter is brilliant.

    Zoe’s had a couple teeth that weren’t available to leave for the fairy. One ended up at the bottom of the YMCA pool… and one she swallowed with breakfast. Our fairy seems OK with Zoe writing her an explanation note as to why the tooth isn’t there for her… and has left her normal gift in return (a silver dollar).


  3. A book and 12 cents = rich tooth fairy

  4. The letter was funny but I’d sue over the 12cents. 12cents. A tooth has at least got to be worth 50cents 🙂
