ATTN: All tooth fairies.... what do you do with the teeth?

I feel like that is a pretty straightforward question.

  • lol. My DS has lost 4 teeth and managed to literally loose 3 of them before the tooth fairy could ever get there! The one I just tossed. My dad still has all my teeth and to be honest I found that disturbing! lol.

  • I saved most of them and picked a few and made it the stone for some rings for my girls when they were younger, still have them......they are 34,33, and 24.

  • My mom always just tossed them. I know one of my friend's moms saved them all. I don't know why that seems gross to me, especially considering that I have saved all my kids' umbilical cord stumps, but it does.

  • I bought a wooden tooth box. It holds baby teeth as keep sakes. I actually don't think my great grandchildren want a tooth belonging to my son....on a more creepy note I have it on hand as DNA for if we should need it. Hope not. :(

  • I've been wondering this myself! My oldest dd lost her first tooth a couple of months ago. I saved that one, but I don't want to save all of her teeth. I hate to just throw them away though. I don't know, but I need to figure it out soon, 'cause her next loose tooth is ready to fall out any day now!
