Crap Parenting: Fairy Tales

Daughter loses one of her big front teeth . . .

Puts tooth in special pillow and makes a note for the tooth fairy. Wife goes to work and says: "You have to be the tooth fairy tonight!" Me: No problem!!

Me forget. I tell girl that tooth fairy must be busy, what with it being summer and all . . .

Next night: Same thing. Wife goes to work. I promise to be the tooth fairy. At 11 I say to self: "Okay remember to be tooth fairy". When I wake up I realize I did not do this thing . . .

Tell daughter (who is clearly used to disappointment in the realm of supernatural tooth collectors).

Then when daughter isn't looking, sneak into room, stick two dollars in the tooth fairy pillow and take the note . . . .

She liked that the tooth fairy came when she wasn't looking . . . .

ok now my entire belief system is completely shot.... my whole life I have believed with every ounce of my believing fibers that the tooth fairy was in fact able to crank out non-stop double unders........

P.S. good luck at the CrossFit games in case I don't have a chance to make another annoying post between now and then....
