No £1 coins in the house. Tooth came out tonight. The only one being dd's purse. Going to replace with interest tomorrow! Promise!

As long as you replace it... she won't notice in the morning, I take it?

No I don't even think she remembered having a purse. She will notice no £1 under her pillow though.

Hide her purse, just in case she decides to put her tooth fairy money in it. wink

Oh good thinking. Why do I feel so bad?

Just in case the meteorite lands on your head tomorrow so you never get to replace the "loan". As if you were stealing from your child, even though you're not; because you could, in theory, and would probably get away with it. It makes no sense at all, of course, but I often feel that way too (have been known to stand in an empty shop thinking "I could walk out with anything and they wouldn't know", with absolutely no intention of doing so, and then start guiltily and blush when someone comes in!).

... if you don't want to feel bad, how about putting £1 worth of change, or a £2 or whatever you've got, in the purse as hostage until you can find a replacement £1 coin?

Yanbu just replace when you can. Although it has been known that there have been awoken during the night by the SAS smashing the front door down to arrest you. It was on Crimewatch.

I never feel bad about borrowing money from my childrens rooms since most of it is change that they find lying around the house anyway and its usually mine to start with!!! grin

They even ask for it now when daddy empties his pockets "do you want this change daddy or can I have it?" invariably he says they can rolls eyes
