It almost saddens me that my youngest has already lost her first tooth! Yes, she's already 5-1/2 and it is time for her to start losing teeth, but that still doesn't make it any easier.
She had a shark tooth coming in behind her baby tooth, so the dentist told us we should definitely start wiggling the baby tooth so that the permanent tooth could move forward properly. So we wiggled and wiggled. I got a tap on the shoulder at 4am from my daughter letting me know her tooth fell out while she was sleeping. What luck she woke up when it fell out and she didn't swallow it!
She wondered if we should put her tooth under her pillow right then and there, but explained everyone would want to see her tooth before she left it for the tooth fairy.
We put her tooth under her pillow and the tooth fairy brought her $3!!! And that is exactly what she woke me up at 6:30am to tell me.
With an eight year old, the tooth fairy has been visiting us for a few years now and we have learned a thing or two.
But here is my big question: how much does your tooth fairy exchange for a tooth?
