It's been a long time since the Tooth Fairy visited this house LOL...s/o's two older kids are already 16 and 18 (my older ones don't and never have lived here) but she found her way here Saturday night! The 5 year old had a wiggly front tooth and while he was rough housing with the 3 year old the tooth popped right out. He's been showing off to everybody. He got a whole dollar too. He wants to go to the dollar sore because I told him that he can get anything he wants from there...well one of anything he wants...with his dollar. He'll be having the tooth fairy visit again really soon too because the other bottom front tooth is wiggly. Looks like I'll be sending a toothless little boy to kindergarten next month LOL! Do you enjoy toothfairy visits as much as your kids do? Ever have any sibling rivalry when one loses a tooth and another wants to, too? (yeah the 3 year old is pretty jealous).

Wowee! I'll bet the little guy was so excited about that dollar. My daughter loves losing teeth cause each one lost means a dollar and that is equal to one ELF lipgloss. And she loves those lipglosses! Of course, she would have to lose ten whole teeth to get one of the ELF bath and body baskets!

My oldest son got really upset when the tooth fairy visited him the first time because she took his tooth he thought she would look at the tooth then leave money and the tooth. I finally had to tell him that she left the tooth with me to keep for him!LOL

I cant wait for the tooth fairy to visit our house. I thought my five year old Zac was going to lose his first tooth but it wasnt lose enough. He has learned from his older sister Erica that the tooth fairy is cool lol. She would get a dollar from her and she would save it and go buy something she really wants. So I cant wait until she starts coming back. It will be so much fun.

We've reached the stage now Foxy where we have the Tooth Fairy as part of our dental plan. She leaves a pound ($1) and we spend £100! But we are all Father Christmas and Easter Bunny believers too. Watch Miracle on 34th Street (Richard Attenborough version). You'll believe too. (if you don't already).

rotflmao :)) I so hear ya Pikey, LMAO We shelled out about 2400.00 to the tooth fairy this year, but I have 4 pearly perfect teeth to show for it :))) I am not going to let the fairy take these this time.... If she even tries she will be met with a stake between her pretty little ears!

Kids are wonderful and congratulations on having two(?) My kids are no longer the age for getting visits from the tooth fairy. It's kinda interesting about the sibling rivalry on losing a tooth. I can see a happy family there.

It has been such a long time since the tooth fairy visited my house! Stepson is 21. I remember that my grandmother made a special tooth fairy pillow for her visits. It sat next to our regular pillow when we had a specimen so that the Tooth Fairy wouldn't wake us up while retrieving the tooth and depositing the moolah. We always tried to stay away to see her, but never managed it. Mom used to come in and tell us that she wouldn't appear until we fell asleep.

Oh yes, any kind of fairy makes me happy :)))) My Emily just lost a tooth and she starts kindergarten this fall as well, but hers was not wiggly at all, she fell off the bed and knocked it out tooth root and all LMAO.... The Dentist said all is well it will grow back in the time it is suppose to, But the day she was going to put the tooth under her pillow, we spent reading and finding tooth fairy stories.

My daughter is only 18 months old, so she really does not notice when my 8 year old loses a tooth. I normally give my son $1 for each tooth. I even stuck $1 under his pillow for the tooth that he lost at school and never brought home.

I sent my oldest to Kindergarten with the two top front teeth missing, lol. Then she found out that if she loses a tooth in school she'll get a tooth necklace to put the tooth in and a certificate that she lost it there. Promptly she worked hard on the next remotely loose tooth to come out in school. It took her a couple of weeks put she proudly came home with her necklace and certificate. Little she knew that this isn't done in first grade. When she managed to pull out one in first grade they only gave her a small ziplock to put it and take it home in. And yes, my middle one is jealous, although my older one was nice enough to share her tooth fairy money with her. Now she is starting Kindergarten in the fall and claims a tooth is lose. I guess the tooth fairy will come again....soon.

foxyfire hi my son is all grown up now but when he was little we used to always give him a dollar when he lost a toogh, but one time he had a baby tooth that was loose but it would not come out. He was in real pain as it was evidently pulling on a nerve. we had to take him to a childrens dentist and have it pulled. the dentist said this happens ocassionally that the roots get tangled somehow and the tooth wont just pop out. So after he braved having it pulled by the dentist we gave him a whooping five dollars to spend any way he wanted. I had forgotten that until I read your post.
