but someones gotta do it right? I played the tooth fairy last night for my son. He lost his front tooth and little did I know I would be going on adventure of my own. I would post pictures of the destruction I was about to face, but I refuse to claim this kinda mess was even in my house...
I was laying in bed last night watching Mad Men (still on season 2, no spoilers please) relaxing and winding down from my busy day. I get a text from my mom that says "Don't forget to play toothfairy tonight for Hayden, do it before your Ambien kicks in" (Yes folks, I am an insomniac and take meds to fall asleep. GASP!!!!) My response is something to the affect of "Crap!!!!!" (or maybe something similar I won't write here.)
I run downstairs to get some $$ and a baggie to put it in (I don't want it falling behind the bed or anything). and continue my quest to his room. Keep in mind, I have alllll the lights out and wooden floors so I'm trying to find that *sweet spot* where it doesn't creak. So as I'm hopping from foot to foot (I'm wearing my thick socks so I can be sneaky) and making my way to his room I'm thinking this will be quick and easy.
I make it to his door.... and my eyes are starting to adjust to the darkness but just enough to see the floor is completely black and there are *lumps* (toys hidden in the darkness waiting for my demise) everywhere.
Note: My son has about 200+ hot wheels cars.... Can you see where this is going???
So I start my way to his bed that's across the room (at this point I feel as if I'm about to cross a pond where the crocodiles are waiting at your heels for you to slip off those slippery rocks).
First step goes ok
Second Step I nudged some books with my toes and made a little noise so I freeze for about 5 seconds.. *Hayden stirs but doesn't wake* At this point my heart is pounding. (WTF it's a tooth, I'm not burglarizing a house!!)
Third Step... *whew*
Fourth step... ohhhh pretty good, this is easier than I thought
NOTE: this is where my overconfidence got the best of me
Fifth Step.. The middle of my foot came straight down on a hot wheel car. !&@&% I kept thinking in my head The tooth-fairy does NOT curse!!!
sixth step... I went down... I caught myself right before I hit the floor at the edge of his bed. At this point I felt pretty defeated and wanted to just give up but knew I had a duty and I was going to DO IT!!!
Luckily the toothfairy caught a break and Hayden had the great mind to have the little baggie that contained his tooth sticking out of his pillow and at easy reach. I switched out the tooth and headed back.
Long story short I started to fall again on my way back but caught myself on the wall... then I ran out...
What is Hayden doing today??? CLEANING HIS ROOM!!! This morning he ran up to me with a fistful of quarters exclaiming "Look what the toothfairy left me!!!!" He was so happy and I knew right then and there it was worth the bruises I ensued.
He then says "I heard the toothfairy last night but didn't look, I didn't want her to disappear. I thought you said she flew? I heard her walking around in my room"
