This is the story of the Square Peg and the Tooth Fairy……a story that Mummy Square Peg had never really thought would even be a story….
Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin….
The story began around two weeks ago when we first noticed that our Square Peg had a wobbly tooth. He was a little freaked out by it initially and wouldn’t eat anything (not vastly different from his normal behaviour) but he usually eats something. The following day our Square Peg had got over the initial shock and was happy for us to have a look at his tooth and pose for pictures.
The days went by and occasionally I would ask him if his tooth was still in and it was…..then on the Wednesday evening, Daddy Square Peg had taken both of the boys out for a bike ride and he sent me this…
….and said “Not sure when this happened…”
So when they got home Daddy Square Peg said that actually he thinks that earlier this evening our Square Peg was crunching something….so we concluded our investigation and decided that he must have eaten it! Yes not just swallowed it, actually crunched it and ate it….
Our next dilemma was what would happen with the Tooth Fairy because a) we don’t even have the tooth and b) he couldn’t give a rats arse about the Tooth Fairy. We decided, mainly for the benefit of our Round Peg, that we would WhatsApp the tooth fairy and explain what had happened.
That night the Tooth Fairy picked up her WhatsApp message and made a special journey to visit the Square Peg. So the next morning, Mummy Square Peg was bursting with excitement that the Tooth Fairy had been and excitedly said ‘Oh look!! There’s some money for you because your tooth fell out!!’……The Square Peg walked out of the room without a backwards glance…..
P.S. Sorry the ending wasn’t more dramatic.
