Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

Yes friends, it's that time again!

Last weekend, Caleb did NOT discover that his front tooth was loose. After I repeatedly told him NOT to play with it, that's exactly what he couldn't resist.
Monday morning, he "can't eat, my tooth is too loose". We did NOT try to have Daddy take it out the rest of the way to no avail. But I was surprised when he arrived home that afternoon looking like a jack o'lantern.

When I asked him what happened to his tooth, he told me that he lost it at school. Assuming that, I asked where his tooth ended up. I was NOT totally confused when I received the same reply to my second question as the first. Turns out, his tooth had NOT fallen out and his teacher had NOT given him a tooth sack to keep it in. My son was NOT swinging said tooth sack and what do ya know, the tooth did NOT disappear. Huh.

Here's where the NOT ME! part comes in. I did NOT in any way imply, insinuate or otherwise indicate that maybe, just maybe, the tooth fairy wouldn't visit when there was no tooth for her to pick up. He didn't seem very heart broken at this news, but looked me straight in the eye and said, "I'll just have Daddy call her."

I suppose I should tell you that on more than one occasion, Jon has forgotten to put the money under Caleb's pillow, so the first time, I just told him to "call Daddy and ask him to call the TF and remind her to stop by. I'm sure that with so many first graders losing teeth, she was just extra busy last night."

That's worked just fine. Whew!

Oh, and for the record, the tooth fairy did NOT come, but she left the dollar at the dining room table since there wasn't any reason for her to go upstairs. He'sShe's so smart.

Thank God for gullible 6 year olds. The last tooth Ethan lost, the Tooth Fairy "forgot". I was able to sneak in while he was eating breakfast,and put a dollar under his pillow. Then I asked him if he wasn't sure he didn't look enough. He went back in, and sure enough, there was the dollar! He smiled and said, "Wow, Mom! The tooth fairy really hid it this time!" Whew. :-)
