Dc2 lost their first tooth and we are sorted with the coin and it's all v.exciting etc.

except on the way to bed DC1 helpfully told DC2 that they got a toy with their first coin for their very first tooth.

DH and I forgot this. We have literally nothing stashed yet (usually I'd have started Xmas shop by now).

A letter from the tooth fairy blaming Covid-19 for the delay and the toy is on its way?!

The toy shops in tooth fairy land are still on lockdown so a note under the pillow explaining it'll have to be an IOU might work

Emergency trip to Tesco?

I can't go to the supermarket as it's a drive away and dh and I shared wine with dinner Blush

Maybe the corner still love Kinder Eggs right?

Yes kinder egg!

Kinder egg for the win!

We do a fiver for the first tooth and £2 thereafter.

Great until you realise it's 10pm, all the shops are shut and you forgot to get some cash for it.

Every. Damn. Time.

I changed a friend's name to "The Tooth Fairy" on my phone and she sent a text for DS. There was also a Paypal payment with the promise the tooth will be collected when things are "Covid clear". It worked a treat!

I wouldn't care I was ever so smug today "dh, can you get some coins in your change on the way home?"

Super organised.

DD was told at school that the tooth fairy brings a coin AND a chocolate coin 😱 Bastard things aren’t easy to find outside Xmas!

Why hasn’t someone written down the rules for this and Santa??
