  • I taped the first one in the back of their baby book with the date written under it and threw the rest away. It will be a great memory when they are old enough to figure out that there is no tooth fairy.

  • I have a keep sake box for each child and I keep the teeth in there. Along with other items.

  • My Mother kept all my baby teeth hidden in her grandmothers antique teapot that sat on the mantle... Us kids werent allowed to touch it haha so we never figured out they were there... Until one day she was cleaning and asked me to get it down. When I opened it and saw all the teeth she said "I bought them back from the tooth fairy!" haha I believed her.. Anyway theyre weird to look at now.. To compare them to the teeth I have now

  • I coat them with clear nail polish so they don't break, and I keep them. My niece once asked my sister what the tooth fairy wanted all those teeth for, and my sister told her that the tooth fairy builds a dazzling white castle out of them.
