Super Mom

Worst Mom

Or maybe the most forgetful mom. . .

IMG_9049 copy (Medium) Quintus lost another tooth yesterday.  So adorable.  I totally love toothless smiles.  I put his tooth into the little bag, so that the Tooth Mouse could take it that night.

Anyway.  This was in the morning, that turned into a whole day / night visit with friends.

After having a fall-out with Tommie, I forgot to be the Tooth Mouse. 

After his morning bath, he walked into my room and said “The Tooth Mouse forgot”  GUILTY!!!  I felt SO bad.

IMG_9076 (Small) Quick excuse:  “I think it’s because this time we didn’t put your tooth in the little pillow as we normally do but instead hung it on the door”

URHG.  I forgot!!!  He was so ticked off and said that he wouldn’t put it in the little cushion or leave it on the door thingy.  He will give it to me.  The Tooth Mouse forgot and “If you snooze you loose”.  I practically had to beg him to give the Tooth Mouse another chance.  Told him how we often forget things at home or make mistakes … that not giving the Tooth Mouse the tooth is actually a disadvantage to him.  Sjoe.  Finally he agreed.

Tonight all was fine in his world again. The Tooth Mouse had replaced his tooth with money during the day.  Even leaving a tiny note of apology.



This morning I had a training course (or whatever you must call the waste of time and boredom I had to endure).  Since we had a long weekend, today completely felt like a Monday.  Especially so since these meetings / training courses are on a Monday.  I was completely, 100 % convinced it was a Monday.  I drove to school to pick up Jason, knowing that I’ll drive back again later to get Quintus because it was Monday.

However.  It was not.  Quintus has choir practice on Mondays.  Today … not a Monday.  Up until when I went back to school to pick him up after his choir practice, I was convinced it was Monday.

I took one look at his face though and immediately it hit me like a ton of bricks….it’s not Monday….

    Lol, I remember doing that once! I think I told them the toothfairy had rung me to let me know she was held up and would come the next night. Oh it’s a tangled web we weave!
    Poor Quintus, I’m sure he understood 🙂

    My excuse was that all the windows were closed and that he could find no place to get into the house. We all have way to many things to think about everyday. At least he understood. Eventually.

  10. YOU think you’re a bad mommy. Your post just reminded me that my 8 year old lost his tooth a MONTH ago and I forgot to leave him money. Apparently he forgot too. Oh man…
