Mum forgets tooth fairy visit but saves the day with clever note

A mum who missed a scheduled visit from the tooth fairy has revealed how she managed to get away with it.

Sabrina Anna wrote a letter posing as the fantasy character, in which she apologised to her little girl Avery for being late.

Sabrina shared the adorable note on social media where fellow parents praised her for the ‘parenting win’, reports Daily Star.

The letter read: “Dear Avery, thank you for the beautiful tooth.

“I am so very sorry for being late! I got stuck in a sticky spiderweb last night and by the time I got myself untangled, it was almost daytime.

“I have to be back in Fairyland before the sun comes up.

“I wish I could have made it sooner to retrieve your 4th tooth, but I am extremely proud of you for being patient with me.”

Sabrina posted a picture of the note on Twitter, captioning it: “When you forget to be the Tooth Fairy… #parentingfail” alongside a sad emoji.

Fellow parents praised the incredible idea, as one said: “This is sooooo cute!”

And another wrote: “This looks like a parenting win to me!!!”

The mum revealed that the secret to making her letter look legitimate was using a website called Canva, which allows you to customise one of the thousands of templates it has on offer.

After settling on a design that Sabrina liked, she added the heartfelt message and even added a picture of the tooth fairy.
