Silence or whispering is never a good sign when you have a 6 and an 8 year old. It usually means trouble!
I could hear lowered voices on Thursday evening and I wondered what was occurring upstairs.
Me: What are you up to?
Minxy: Nothing. Everything is fine mum.
Jamster: Shhhhh! (Followed by a slurping noise)
Minxy to Jamster: *Whispering* Just do it!
Me: You aren't trying to pull Jamster's tooth out are you?
Jamster: It doesn't hurt mum. I really need the cash.
I'm fairly certain the tooth fairy doesn't leave £50 notes under pillows so I can't imagine he needs the £1 that desperately !!
When it did finally fall out on Friday, at school in the playground, his letter to the tooth fairy made me chuckle too...
|"Please can I have a Skylanders Bee Giants and money"|
He had obviously wanted to pull his tooth out to see if the tooth fairy would bring him both money and a new Skylander Giant... cheeky, but wise that one!
The tooth fairy replied (she is wise and cunning also it would appear) and left a £1....
Perhaps a little bribery from the tooth fairy will stop the fuss he makes each morning and evening in the bath room when it comes to cleaning his teeth!?
