It seems like it was long time ago that I did this post on Stormy’s first loose tooth.
Our neighbor, Emma informed Stormy she will get $10 from the tooth fairy.
Ummmmmm---noooooo---she won’t. The tooth fairy is very kind and only leaves $1 for our kids.
The tooth fairy doesn’t need every tooth from every child. So I asked her to please leave my kids teeth so that I can have them. That way—my kids see them in memory boxes and know that—yep-the tooth fairy doesn’t need every tooth. Some mommy’s like to keep them for a memory box.
Hey—it works! They also have to leave their tooth on the kitchen counter (in a Ziploc baggie) so the tooth fairy will just leave the $1 beside the bag.
So there is another way that I handle this stuff with my kids. It is a learning process. Wait until I tell you about Santa.
And yes—Shayne knows about the tooth fairy too. She asked me, “How much money are you going to leave her?”
