If you come to our house, please disregard the letter to the Tooth Fairy posted on the front door.
Last night, The Girl got terrified the Tooth Fairy was going to come to our house. I’m not sure where this latest fear has come from, but she went to sleep last night saying she didn’t want to dream about the Tooth Fairy and woke up this morning almost crying, upset the Tooth Fairy was going to come.
I can’t say I blame her. The whole idea of some mythical creature sneaking into your room in the middle of the night and sticking their hands under your pillow without you waking up is a bit creepy (as I have posted about before).
So, this morning, to help alleviate a 3 year olds fear, we wrote and posted the following letter on our front door. It says:
Dear Tooth Fairy,
Please do not come to our house. There are no teeth here for you. Perhaps you could try the next house?
I’m sure the postal worker and newspaper delivery people think we are looney, but it worked and calmed The Girl down.
