Even though my children are older, I was thinking about the past and remembered how magical it was when my daughter’s tooth started to wiggle and then eventually fall out… we carefully wrapped it into a special tissue and the placed it into a special silk bag and slipped it under her pillow. I had found a verse years ago and made a small booklet out of it… it is a story about a tooth fairy who took Nicole’s tooth and then had gnomes make a special stone. When my daughter awoke, she found the booklet and the stone tucked neatly into the silk bag. Sometimes the tooth fairy would leave sea shells too! and how my daughter loved reading the booklet over and over again…
You can make this booklet too… and suprise your little one with a cute story of your own… here’s the story for my daughter’s first tooth…
This night it is a special night
As fairies dance upon the roof.
All the fairies must alight,
For Nicole just lost a tooth!The Fairy Queen gives her commands-
Twelve bright fairies must join hands
Then together in a circle stands
To guard Nicole while she sleeps.
The Tooth Fairy into the circle leaps
The hidden tooth she takes
Ah, but has far to go
Before Nicole awakes.
Three times around the world she flies
Over valleys deep and mountains high;
Skirts the storm clouds thick with thunder,
Wings over waves all wild with wonder.
Deep within their earthly homes
Finally she finds the little gnomes,
Who upon the tooth they must work
Never once their duty shirk.
Some are hammering, hammering, hammering,
Some the fellows blow a sprinkle of fairy dust
Others sweat at the sweltering forge
And then cry out, “Hi Ho!”
The tooth’s been turned to a shimmering stone,
A glimmering, glowing gem
The tooth Fairy takes the gnomes’ good gift,
And bows (curtsies) to all of them.
Before the sun’s first rays are shown,
She returns the stone to Nicole’s bed,
And then – – – away she’s flown!
