The Tooth Fairy

Little I is a very stubborn three and a half year old who does not like me to clean her teeth. She will let her dad clean them, but often he is not here at teeth cleaning time. Finally after many tantrums,tears, and hiding under the bed, I made this chart for her, complete with a letter from the Tooth Fairy (yes, the Real One). The letter tells her she can have a silver star to stick on the fairy's skirt each time she lets me clean her teeth without a fuss. This morning she was not interested at all, but at lunchtime she deigned to let me clean her teeth and then carefully added her sticker to the skirt. Who knows if it will work again tonight or tommorrow.


  1. That is such a great idea, hope it works later. I am wrapped up to its freezing! Hope you have a great week xx

  2. What a good idea... I thought it was going to be an advent calendar at first! I also love the scarves you've knitted in previous post - very stylish - it might be my next woolly challenge. By the way, I like your new header - I usually read your posts on my iphone reader & don't see the header (for all I know you changed it weeks ago!!!)
