Okay so I have two children that are 10 months apart in age and just last year the oldest lost his first tooth. Ok I thought no big deal. Well couple weeks later he lost his second tooth. Again, not a big problem. Couple months go by and all is well, toothfairy hasn't had to come by. Then behold my youngest looses her first tooth and two weeks later loses her second tooth. At this point I'm thinking I can handle this. There teeth are falling out a little ways apart from each other. Boy was I ever wrong!!! Couple weeks go by my son loses his next two teeth within a week of each other. So at this point my son has lost a total of 4 teeth and my daughter has lost 2. Well I then get lucky and go almost two months with no teeth falling out. But now they seem to be falling out in rapid succession. Just in the past month my daughter lost two more teeth and my son lost two more teeth. It they keep losing thier teeth at this rate the toothfairy is going to go broke. LOL!!! So my question is this??? Have you ever had kids close together in age and have thier teeth fall out so close together that you felt like you were going to go broke? Please share any tips you have. When your kids got to the age were they started losing thier teeth, did you start saving your change so the toothfairy could visit?

My two children are nearly four years apart in age so I've not yet had to deal with them losing teeth at the same time. However, my son is now a year away from the age that his sister was when she lost her first tooth so I know that the time is coming soon when they will both be losing teeth at the same time. When the tooth fairy has left money for my daughter, it has always been a dollar per tooth except for the first tooth that she lost and for that one it was five dollars.

Maybe you will get lucky and they won't lose thier teeth at the same time. My brother and I are 4 years apart and I don't ever remember losing any of my teeth at the same time that my brother did. Wow, $5 for the first tooth. Your tooth fairy is very generous. LOL! Did your daughter ask why the tooth fairy doesn't leave as much money now, since losing her first tooth? How did you explain it to her?

Well both my kids got $1.00 for thier first two teeth and now they only get .75 cents per tooth. I know its not a lot, but with money being tight and them losing them so close together that all I can afford to give them. Luckily they don't seem to mind. They just get excited because they have more change to add to thier piggy banks.

I have two small children, and luckily they havent started losing teeth yet. But my brother and I are close in age, and we were losing teeth rapidly at the same time. I dont remember what it was exactly my parents first gave me when I lost a tooth. But I do remember it slowly started diminishing, when my brother started losing teeth as well. When I asked my mother why the "tooth fairy" wasnt giving me as much money, she came up with this elaborate story about how "the first tooth you lose is worth so much, but as you lose more and more they lose value." (or something like that." Good luck to you. And thank you, you brought back a good memory and a laugh.

Thanks so much for sharing. I believe that is whats going to happen with my kids. The amount they get is going to go down, if they keep losing thier teeth the way they are. I am glad I was able to bring back some good memory for you and I wish you all the luck in the world with your two children once they start losing thier teeth.
