My 7 year old lost a tooth at school yesterday and the lunch helper put it in a baggie and sent it home with him. Well, this apparently got all the kids talking.

SOOO, last night the toothfairy came and she has 4 one dollar bills in her purse, so that is what she left ds. She sprinkled some pixie dust on the money (glitter nail polish) like she always does. Sometimes that little fairy will leave a nice note about how nice his teeth are, sometimes she leaves a note reminding him to brush better/longer. Last night the tf was tired and just left the money with pixie dust on it rolled up and tied with a ribbon.

Well, ds wakes this morning and is happy but then looks at me and says "I wonder why the tooth fairy doesn't think my teeth are very good?"  I ask why he thinks that and tell him his teeth are lovely. "Well, the other kids in my class say they get $5, a new toothbrush and a toy!" A TOY? From the freaking tooth fairy???

 

YOU MOM'S are KILLING ME! What happened to 2 shiny quarters? lol!

What does the tooth fairy bring your kids (if you participate in this ritual) ?

Mine haven't lost any teeth yet but I'm thinking a couple of quarts or maybe a dollar. I only got a quarter for a tooth.

My kids get a dollar a tooth. They have never said anything to me about other kids getting more money. I have 4 in school but maybe it has never come up, althought they tell everyone when i'm with them.

First tooth will get a dollar. Every other tooth will get a quarter. No toys or $5! Maybe a new toothbrush depending on how close the tooth loss is. I got a dollar for my first tooth. The rest i ended up going to the dentist when they were loose to have pulled because they would not come out for anything!

The tooth fairy has been forgetting my kids teeth the last year or so, so mom just gives them a $5 for them now. =\

I know right. Well I used to go and get those gold $1 coins from the bank and just put them aside for this specifically. The novelty of the coin being gold looking was enough for my littles.

 I dont know if you remember the coin star commercial from several years ago, but show it to your little and explain that maybe she ran out of "BIG MONEY". lol Ill try to find the commercial for you on youtube mama.

I got a quarter which bought me $25 pieces of penny candy, lol.

Mine got $1. I think a toy or several dollars is beyond crazy.
