This letter 'from the Tooth Fairy' is what dads are made for

Dad gets creative in this pun-filled letter 'from the Tooth Fairy' for his daughter

Generally speaking, the Tooth Fairy gig is pretty straight forward. Kids aren't looking for much. A few quid under their pillow and they're pretty satisfied with how highly their pearly whites are valued. There's no need to go any further with it.

That being said, we're glad that this one parent decided that his stepdaughter was deserving of some light (hearted) correspondence in addition to the aforementioned monetary reward. His wife posted the letter to social media and predictably got a pretty good response.

It reads:

Dear Scarlett, 

You couldn't wait until I was back from my holidays? There I was sitting on a beach in Bermuda sipping a very alcoholic (but not too sugary) drink, when I get a text from one of my gumshoes telling me one of your pearly whites had escaped!

Bleeding marvelous (see what I did there?). 


So then I'm on a boat, then a taxi, then a plane followed by another taxi, a replacement bus service, an Uber, a bicycle, unicyle and a tractor (don't ask) - all to give you a measly two quid!

Normally I make good money on teeth* but this time I am seriously out of pocket. Plus, I missed the beach barbeque and there was a cute leprechaun I had my eye on! 

Ah well. 

So here you go! Here's your cash, spend it wisely!! No sweets or sugary drinks. I'm heading back to Bermuda and I have to be quick as my tractor leaves in five minutes. 

If your other tooth comes out during half term, do me a favour and give it back for a bit! Let me have the rest of my holiday! This is a stressful job, sometimes it's like pulling teeth! And I need a break. 

All the best, blah, blah - TF

*unless I get done for incisor trading

You have to give him full marks for creativity. We can't wait to read his take on Santa Claus.
