  • We have kept every tooth both of our sons have lost. For some of them, I wrote a little story about how it was lost (if it was something other than an ordinary pulling), and I date them so I'll know how old they were.

  • I save it. the kids found my stash of teeth while going through my stuff one day and asked me about it. I told them that the tooth fairy takes it, marks it down, cleans it and then gives it to us for safe keeping. They were ok with that answer and thought it was really neat to be able to go back and look at their teeth as they get older.

  • No I plan on saving her first tooth.....but only that one...we put it in her baby book so she can look back at it

  • Haha, this is funny and I'm glad to know that I am not the only one. I save all of my childrens, though I have no idea why. I don't do a note, but it seems too significant to thrown them away. ironically, my own mother gave me all of my baby teeth back just a few years ago. Now, not only do I have both of my kids's but mine, too. Not sure what I will ever do with them. Keeping them seems silly but throwing them away is too hard to do.
