Quick! Why hasn't the tooth fairy been?!

Because Mummy is a fucking failure and was too busy lesson planning last night and then falling into bed exhausted and forgot to take the tooth put the fucking coin under the pillow.

But I can't tell an outraged six year old that.

Help, hive mind....

Quick handwritten message in bedroom to say the fairy bank ran out of change and she'll be back tonight.

Aftereights91 Tue 20-Mar-18 06:46:39

She fell down and hurt her wing

Leave a note outside their door saying they have to find the money in the house like a treasure hunt ?? Say they'll be back for the tooth tonight if they find the penny ??!!

She has been but the coin slipped down behind the bed. She forgot the tooth and will be back tonight.

(We had this a fortnight ago)

Because you forgot to leave the window open, silly mummy!

Use this all the time! It was a bit too chilly and forgot to leave the window open. She can’t fly through glass, you know...

4 dcs aged between 6-11 here. I am very bad at opening windows generally!

Due to new safeguarding procedures, tooth fairies have been advised not to enter children’s bedrooms alone and now must have a chaperone at all times. While they adjust to these new working procedures, some delays to service will unfortunately occur. Tooth fairy central endeavour to deliver your goods as soon as possible.

Bedroom too messy, couldn't find you or is that just in my house

BeBesideTheSea Tue 20-Mar-18 06:47:31

Snow means it is too cold to fly

Believeitornot Tue 20-Mar-18 06:47:40

Snow or ice caused a problem

Or you don’t know. And you’re sure she’s coming tonight. Worked for me blush

Stuck in a snow drift and running late? Works for the corporation bin people round here grin

ItsAHardKn0ckLife1 Tue 20-Mar-18 06:48:02

Was too windy outside for any fairies to fly.

ImListening Tue 20-Mar-18 06:48:10

The tooth fairy is behind because of the snow.

SadieHH Tue 20-Mar-18 06:48:32

A run on lost teeth usually does it. She just couldn’t get there in time.

MrsSchadenfreude Tue 20-Mar-18 06:49:15

She was out on the lash with the Easter Bunny.

She doesn’t work Mondays.

“Are you sure? I bet you didn’t look properly” go back in and ‘find’ the newly planted pound.

AJPTaylor Tue 20-Mar-18 06:50:23

window not left open.

CircleofWillis Tue 20-Mar-18 06:50:39

The tooth fairy has been on holiday but is back today so fingers crossed should get to 6yr old DC tonight.

widgetbeana Tue 20-Mar-18 06:51:00

Cold weather, too windy, busy night, door shut, al of the above acceptable.

Leave a note under door, on kitchen table etc.

shakeyourcaboose Tue 20-Mar-18 06:51:30

They sent a trainee who got lost? Or fell asleep and got her clock around the wrong way so will come after midday when at school?

Firenight Tue 20-Mar-18 06:51:34

The bedroom must have been too messy; they don’t like to risk broken wings.

LyannaStarktheWolfMaid Tue 20-Mar-18 06:52:00

It’s fallen down the back of the bed!!

LML83 Tue 20-Mar-18 06:52:02

This happened to us, the next night we left it on bedside drawers so she wouldn't miss it again.
Toothfairy left a larger coin and a note in tiny handwriting apologising.

Good luck!

backinaminute Tue 20-Mar-18 06:52:27

As someone else just said - go check the bed yourself and find the coin (worked here..........).

CommonFishDiseases Tue 20-Mar-18 07:00:33

Thank you thank you thank you. She seems to be buying the snow explanation!

DH just cooly explained (upon being woken up by DD) that the Tooth Fairy was on holiday. Getting away in term time before kids go on Easter holidays next week.
