The Tooth Fairy

Deniska lost a tooth on Friday morning. He put the tooth under his pillow but unknown to me, he also put a letter to the tooth fairy! When the Tooth Fairy came, she left money but did not answer his letter. Oh dear! This is his letter - corrections are in red:

"Dear tof frey (Tooth Fairy), I am in 2 grade. Did you now (know) that? No Yes

I love you. I love a lot. Do wyepepn (some people) get 5 or 10$? Yes No

Wote es yor fert colow? (What is your favorite color?)

Wat bo you lok lake? (What do you look like?)"

He then drew a picture of the tooth fairy and him. Apparently, the tooth fairy drives a hummer!!

How sweet it this? I have dated it and save it in my Treasure box! Some day, he will enjoy looking at it. I also saved a copy of my reply. It follows as below:

Dear Deniska,
Thank you for your letter. I am sorry that I did not see it when I left your money and took your tooth! I thought the tooth was the only thing under your pillow. Next time I will look closer.

I do love you very much! I think your teeth are so pretty. Do you brush them every day? I want you to take really good care of your teeth. Remember to floss too!

I knew you were in the 2nd grade because I have known you all of your life! You are such a smart boy and I am proud of you!! Always take your time and try your best in school. I know you want to be a dentist when you grow up!

I don’t give people $5 or $10 for a tooth! A $1 is what I give. Maybe I was out sick one night and my substitute might have left more on accident. Don’t worry; I will make a note in my book about that!

My favorite color is orange - just like yours!! I also love all the other colors!

You asked what I looked like? When you close your eyes and think of me, you will see me!
Thank you for a sweet letter!

I love you,
The Tooth Fairy


  1. Susan, I love this!!! His letter is so cute, and I love that you were able to get the tooth fairy to actually give you a letter to leave for him... you certainly have connections(hehe). I especially like the part about only giving $1, and that you'll have to speak to the substitute, lol. What a precious thing to save!
    Hugs, Joanne

  2. As always, I love your blog. This one was especially precious. You are so creative and such a special mama - Deniska and Nikolai (and of course Dennis) are so blessed to have you. Keep up the good work.

    Love, Grandma Joyce

  3. I left a letter for my daughter tonight. We've been doing this for a couple of years now. I didn't know she was saving them until she showed me tonight before bed. She doesn't care about money anymore she just wants a letter. Mine are a bit different from yours. If you'd like to read it just visit my blog. I'm glad to hear other parents do similar things.

  4. Both letters are just so sweet. What a wonderful memory for you to save. Give the boys hugs from me please, you too. ((((Susan)))
