Tooth Fairy - ?

September 22nd, 2009 at 06:45 pm

How much does the tooth fairy pay at your house?

$1 seems reasonable from what I have heard. Just curious.

Hallelujah! BM's tooth fell out. Well, dh had to "yank" it. There wasn't much to yank. It was bothering him today, and hanging by a thread.

As I mentioned, the other tooth had already grown in. It hadn't changed in about 6 weeks, so I just mentioned to dh that we should at least make a consult appointment with the dentist.

BUT, now there is no need! No sooner than I spoke the words, and it decided to come out on its own. Phew! $1 is no big deal - we saved a lot not going to the dentist!

    Yes, $1 here. But it's a GOLD dollar! (coin)

    At the house of Mr. and Mrs. we have amassed quite a collection of gold dollars from the tooth fairy (we have three tooth-losing kids at present).

    The funniest moment was when the second daughter's tooth broke into two pieces and the tooth fairy left her one dollar - but split right down the middle.

    hmm. if i had kids i'd probably make it 50c or $1. when i was little i used to get a little red envelope (the chinese kind) with peppermint carob buttons in it Big Grin

    At our house, the tooth fairy leaves a candy cane under the pillow. It's been very successful Smile

  5. Looking Forward Says:

    At our house she leaves a $1 for a "regular" tooth, a $5 for a molar tooth. In our case several of our daughter's molars had steel caps so they were "special"! Big Grin

    I must admit, my DH and I stunk at being toothfairies! We were always late or forgot! ugh! Glad that is over! Smile Have fun!

    $1 here too. . . although Daisy finished losing teeth for a while over a year ago. She figured out Santa and the Easter Bunny this year; she's probably also figured out the tooth fairy. We weren't great tooth fairies either - we never seemed to have the right cash and had to scramble. . .

    I think we will do dollar coins when DD starts losing teeth. I saw an article in a money magazine a few months back about this- they had done a survey and found that the tooth fairy now averages something like $2.60/tooth.

    We were thinking 50 cents, and then $1 for molars. But decided we were too lazy to find change. LOL. (Not that we always have $1 bills handy either).

    Boo - I am with you - hehe. It doesn't matter - BM found out about all those fictional characters already. Since it took forever to lose his first tooth, just takes all the fun out of it really. But LM lives in a fantasy world and so we will play along. I don't think BM could care less otherwise. Well, I think we'd still play along for the money - it's a rite of passage in a sense. But my kids couldn't be so opposite otherwise. BM is kind of like, yeah, yeah, whatever, the "Tooth Fairy." Rolleyes LM was all excited about it though. If not for "head in the clouds" LM, I'd probably just hand him a dollar. Wink
    I asked him what his friends got and he has no idea. I guess it hasn't been discussed much.

    Oh - candy cane would be fine except my BM has so many cavity issues. The last thing he need is sticky candy. The first teeth to fall out are the only ones without cavities. Rolleyes

    Gold dollars are an excellent idea!

    We used to pay based on age...$0.25 per year of age! Not at good idea. They still lose teeth at 8 and often still believe in the tooth fairy. My kids know now...so no money any more. I like the gold dollar idea!
