Meggers put her tooth under her pillow with so much enthusiasm . “Mommy I sleep with you?” she asked. She was a little nervous about the thought of a fairy coming in the night to look under her pillow while she was asleep, so I assured her that I’d be right next to her and she’d be fine.
It was a fine grade of glitter so when she opened her letter the sparkles hung in the air like shimmery pixie dust. Her eyes were the size of saucers and had that little excited twinkle. I think I’ve read the letter to her about a dozen or more times since she found it.
When she called Grandma & Grandpa they told her the Tooth Fairy had left a gift under her pillow at their house too. So we took a trip over and sure enough the Tooth Fairy had left her, wrapped in a gossamer drawstring pouch, a matching necklace, bracelet, and ring with another dollar. It was such a fun day for her and I had so much fun watching her show the cute gap between her teeth and tell her story about the Tooth Fairy.

i hope when i grow old and losing teeth, the fairy will come by 😛
As the author of a new picture book about a very big-attitude tooth fairy with high-tech gadgets, I’ve heard from a number of parents that their kids are terrified of the tooth fairy coming into their room while they’re sleeping. I never thought of that concern (although I was deathly afraid of mall Santa’s as a child!). But I’m so glad the tooth fairy in my book is so darn cute. Children love the illustrations. 😉
And one of the questions I get from school kids when I do school visits is: “Is the tooth fairy real?”
One little girl went so far as to say, “Is the tooth fairy real? Please, please tell me pretty please with a cherry on top!”
Calling her up to stand with me in front of 300 kids ranging from Kindergarten to fourth grade, I looked at her and said, “Yes, the tooth fairy is real. But like all fairies, she simply disappears when YOU stop believing in her.”
So may your angel believe in her as long as possible! 😉

Just the sweetest thing that the tooth fairy came to your house and brought her magic. She’s sure enchanted me with that story. How lovely!!
