what's the going rate for the tooth fairy?

My 5 almost 6 year old lost his first tooth today, so I need to know what the going rate is for the tooth fairy.

Also how do you sneak in and sneak out, without them waking up?

Crap on a cracker, I just realized I have no cash...I have quarters, but no bills...

Also what do you do with the tooth? Do you keep it? Throw it away?

Bumping for answers. My just turned 6 year old is losing her first tooth in the next day or so - it's really wiggly...

She had a tooth pulled about two years ago and we left $2 and snuck in in the early morning but we were in a pinch and didn't have an action plan yet.

$5 for the first tooth, $2 for each after that (she's only lost 4 so far).

She's a really heavy sleeper, though, so the sneaking in and out wasn't a problem for me. Good luck!

$10 for the first and a couple of buck for the rest.

A co worker leaves a Dollar for every year old they are.

$5 a tooth here. The tooth goes in a container on the desk so it's not hard to switch them out. Wouldn't matter if they did catch me anyway, they don't think the tooth fairy is actually real.

$1/tooth.  $2 if the tooth fairy forgets.  :P

My oldest lost two at the same time for his first, he got them in twos so I guess he's gonna lose them that way. Lol. We left him two hot wheels cars. My parents used to leave toys (barbies for me and cars n such for my brother) and money rotated. So I decided our tooth fairy was going to do the same. Lol
