And the tooth FINALLY came out but she was asking for too much

Posted by   + Show Post

I have 6 1/2 year old twins.  Just like their older sister, they were getting bummed that they are the last ones to lose their first tooth.  My oldest was about 6 1/2 as well.  My twins have been asking if it's loose and I'll check it but it hasn't been loose enough.  One of them started playing with it a little more and got even looser.  Well, i guess it FINALLY came out yesterday at school.  She was very excited to tell me.  She then said, "I can't wait to get $20."  Umm...what???  Apparently, that is what one of her classmates got.

Now, I know it's a parenting decision but, in my opinion, $20 for a tooth is way too much and crazy.  Sorry, we are not going there.  I told her that I sent information to the tooth fairies' (because there is more than one) office saying that for our family we only give $2 for the first tooth and $1 after that.

True that!

Quoting anotherandree:

It's amazing how much we have to come up with on the fly!!



Quoting coolmommy2x:

Haha! That's great!





Once I forgot too and DS complained about not getting money so while he was brushing his teeth, I threw a dollar under his bed and said he must've knocked it off the bed in his sleep.






Quoting anotherandree:

This is what we did too!







Once we completely forgot and just went to bed so we told the kids that we were supposed to email the tooth fairy and let her know she had a pick up but the Internet crashed so she never got the email. They bought it and I gave my husband credit for coming up with that on the spot while being half asleep!








Quoting coolmommy2x:

We did $5 for the first and $1 for the rest.

I liked the second one better. Larry the cable guy is the main character. He is funny. I like his redneck one liners.

I did $5 for the first and $1 for the rest.  I can't imagine $20.

 Love the Tooth Fairies Office!

My kids only get left $1/tooth. Poor dd is 7 and still hasn't lost a tooth- she's a bit upset over that : )

 I got lucky the one time I forgot- it had been raining pretty hard that night, so I told ds2 that the Tooth Fairy was unable to fly in all the rain and would come the next night. It worked : )

 We do 5 dollars for the first tooth or a small gift and a dollar after that.
