“Dear Tooth Fairy” ~ a letter from a little bear aged 4

on July 9, 2014

Dear Tooth Fairy A letter from a little bear aged 4



Dear Tooth Fairy (the one with the sparkly wings…)


Something happened today

That felt like a tickle,

I was eating my tea

And my tooth had a wiggle…


With a toothy peg dance,

It was saying “hello”,

It whispered to me,

“It’s nearly time to go!”


It wiggled again…

Time to go where?

To another home?

To another little bear?


I don’t mind, not really

But we’ve been friends for a while,

We’ve been through weaning and purees,

My friend’s helped me to smile…


Mummy says I get new ones,

That I’m growing up big and strong,

But that doesn’t solve the problem,

What happens when I’ve done wrong?


Will my smile still be beautiful?

Will they still love me so?

Will my smile still work wonders?

Tell me tooth fairy, do you know?


When my tooth does fall out,

It will be under my pillow,

With its shoes and its coat on,

Waving and waiting to go.


By a little bear aged 4

    Love this poem – made me smile. Hope the tooth fairy reassures your little one that their smile will still be just as beautiful 🙂

    Very cute! My eldest son has just turned seven and STILL hasn’t lost a tooth! He’s getting desperate! #prose4T

  8. What a fab poem! I am a total wuss when it comes to teeth falling out so my husband does all of the tooth fairy stuff in our house! x x

  9. mummysallygg says:

    My daughter is desperate to lose a tooth – I might have to read this to her when she does! Love it! #Prose4T

  10. Aww, this is just so cute! Did they really lose a tooth aged 4? #prose4T

    • Well, our little bear is 5 in October and apparantly it does happen. They also tend to fall out the same order they came in, which makes sense. And it happens that this was the first one in. (I remember it like it was yesterday – sob. And the teething nappies…!) I’m keeping an eye on it to make sure it’s all okay…

  11. Oh that is so very sweet, a lovely poem! #sharewithme

  12. This is just beautiful. It made me cry! I am going to read it to Grace later 🙂 Thank you for linking to Prose for Thought x
