tooth fairy? How much.

First tooth, $20, 

Second tooth, $10

Every tooth after $5

Until age 10! If they lose after that age they don't get anything.

So my son lost a tooth, My husband nor I had any cash on us :/ I wasn't running to atm at 9p either.

So looked around the house and found a $1.45 that is what I put under his pillow. Feeling bad, I asked him what he got ( I think he knows it is me.. lol) He said $1.47 < not sure where the other two cents came in..). 

I looked at him and said "Jeez, tooth fairy was a cheap ass this time.." and giggled. He said, yeah she probally didn't have cash on her like always.. But that is ok. He was a good sport. I think I owe him $3.55 more cents for being so good about it and not being a jerk. 

Should I give him more or just drop it? 

He uses it when he goes to the youth center (make him use his own money because he goes with this friends to McDs) So either way I will have to give him money..

I give him money if he don't have it, but if he has money he has to use his own!

My tooth-fairy growing up (love you, momma!) was always more creative than just cash.

She left a pretty ring once, a little jewelled box for holding the teeth, a stuffed bat with a note that said he had followed her in and decided my bed looked comfy, etc.

My kids are getting a dollar a tooth. It would be a quarter except pinterest ruined me by showing me how to use hairspray and glitter to make fairy money.

I'd say give it to him. Tell him you'll make the tooth fairy pay you back next time he loses a tooth. My kids get a dollar for every year they are, and there's no age limit. Of course my 13 year old knows it's not the tooth fairy, but he still gets paid for his teeth.

Your tooth fairy is very giving, we give about 2 buck a tooth over at this fariy's house.  I did give $5 when my younges had to have a molar pulled at the dentist.

I say let it go, leave a note with the extra saying, So sorry, I had so many teeth to pick up last time, I was out of money, lol

That's adorable, and much more magical than money.

We don't do the tooth fairy. I just hand the kids money. My oldest got $5 for her first tooth and $1 for every other one... my youngest has her first loose tooth now, so she'll get the same as her sister..
