When 7-year-old Evolette expressed to her mom that she was nervous about losing a tooth during the pandemic, she had a good reason. How was the tooth fairy going to safely come to her room and pick up her tooth when we are all supposed to be social distancing?
That’s where her mom, Kayla Westhouse, came to the rescue. At the request of her daughter, the Grand Rapids, Michigan mom did what she’s been doing since the coronavirus started––she made a mask.
While the tooth fairy mask was her 178th mask the seamstress has made during the COVID-19 quarantine, this one was perhaps the most challenging. Kayla told Cafe Mom that she initially put off making it in hopes that her daughter would forget about, but she never did. And so the mom set out to make the tiniest and perhaps most intricate mask the pandemic has seen yet!
And great news: the tooth fairy successfully visited Evolette, picked up her mask and wrote a darling thank you letter to the 7-year-old. Now, the tooth fairy can visit children all over the world while practicing safe and healthy practices!
