My kids were at my parents this past summer for a 7 weeks & I found out last night that when my 8 yr old dd lost a tooth but then accidentally swallowed it because she was eating pizza at the time & it caused her to choke!! Of course she was scared because she had just choked & then realized she no longer had her tooth in her mouth & began to cry. My BITCH mother says "well, we can't tell if you're lying or not, so no tooth, no tooth fairy! Stop crying - it's ridiculous to cry over swallowing a tooth!" OMG! I flipped! Ummm, no concern about my child choking for one. My kid is devastated & scared about choking AND swallowing her tooth! And my BITCH mother tells her "NO TOOTH NO TOOTH FAIRY?!?" Well, my kids were afraid to tell me about this but it sorta spilled because my other dd who is 10 yrs old lost her tooth & I overheard her tell my 8 yr old "I'll share my tooth fairy money with you because of that time at Nanna's".
The tooth fairy always knows, that was a very nice thing for your DD to do. But, not what her "grandmother" did. I don't think your over reacting and I would have some words with your mother. I think your hubby is great and a good dad.
