Tooth Fairy

Something strange happened to me today. 

I go to get my kiddos from gym today and I see 2 of my students walking back to the classroom.  One with a tissue to his nose.  My girl says boy has a bloody nose, she's taking him to the office.  Fine- she's a responsible girl, and the boy is so sweet- I have no worries they will get there safely!

I get to gym to pick up the kids, and the teacher says Boy took a nose dive off the scooter and got pretty booger'd up.  Not sure if he came to school with a tooth missing or if he lost it in the nose dive- but pretty sure 2 other teeth are lose- bloody nose- and busted lip  OUCH!

I bring my kids back to class and call Boy's mom to see if he came to school with all of his teeth- yes- he came to school with all teeth in tact.  That leads us to a full on tooth hunt.  Never found it- still, at this moment, it's lost.

So, I'm thinking he probably swallowed it during the nose dive, clean-up, somewhere in there.

BUT, being his first lost tooth- WE HAVE TO GIVE THE TOOTHFAIRY SOMETHING!  So here's what the tooth fairy is getting tonight:  (I changed the words, to keep confidentiality!)

So, to close:  Has this ever happened to you?  How did you handle it?  Do you want a copy of your own for future use in case this ever happens to you?

And, my giveaway closes on Thursday at 5:00pm.  So don't forget to go HERE to enter!


  1. Haha! Poor "Paul"! My youngest son swallowed his first lost tooth while he was eating. We convinced him the tooth fairy could "magic" it out of his tummy! One day at school I had a little guy lose a tooth and I was getting a little tooth container for him another student's tooth popped out too! I had to "sternly" warn everyone else not to start pulling their teeth out too because we had to get some work done. The kids thought the image of no school because everyone's teeth kept popping lose was hilarious!

  2. Never happened to me . . . but I have been known to crawl around my classroom on a hunt. I have always found it!!!! Or the other kids have! This is just crazy -- do not feel bad!
