The Naked Tooth Fairy

I wanted my kids to believe in Santa, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny for a long time but I didn't want them to get laughed at by the kids who didn't believe anymore, so I told them that I was the helper for these imaginary beings.  Santa, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny couldn't make it to every house so I volunteered to help them. They bought it for a long time until my mother-in-law, unfortunately, let the cat out of the bag on Santa and then I had serious damage control. I wanted my kids to believe because, for one thing, it always was a good excuse when they wanted something and also it was fun to watch them get all excited and giddy. It's all fun and games until the naked Tooth Fairy comes to town.
Enya loses teeth like an ultimate fighter. I swear I can't keep up with her but that is no excuse for forgetting the tooth under the pillow when your kid still believes. Just to explan the sitch. I sleep in the nude because I don't like to get strangeld by my nightgown in the middle of the night. After I got all tucked in and was half asleep I realized that I hadn't swapped the tooth for money under Enya's pillow so I crept downstairs in the buff and stuck my arm under her pillow (she had a bunkbbed at this time).  I had to stand on my toes with my arm all the way up to my armpit under her pillow digging for that damn tooth like a  gold digger and I couldn't find the damned thing.
I just kept thinking, "Please don't let her wake up; I will never live this down." and luckily she didn't, and since then there have been no more visits from the naked Tooth Fairy.
By now, Enya knows that I am the Tooth Fairy but she still expects her money.  Now when I forget to put money under her pillow, I just tell her to remind me -- kind of takes the magic out of it but what the hell, I have Mia I can play fairytale creatures with.
