Tooth Fairy $..?

How much did you give your child for the first tooth they lost?

Our oldest daughter just lost her first tooth and "the tooth fairy" gave her $5. Some people made me feel like that was too much...we figured $5 for the first tooth, she did just turn 5 last week, and just a $1 for every tooth after...

My co-worker gave her DD $20

I gave my kids whatever we had. If I had $5 they got $5
