The whole tooth fairy thing is a bit annoying to me.
Not because it costs money or because I have a terrible memory.
But because it is so inconsistent.
Every one gets something different.
I know someone whose child gets $20 for every single lost tooth. Hell I might just start pulling my own teeth for that.
And now that Belle is full force in school talk she knows things. She hears things like Ethan got $3 from the tooth fairy for his tooth.
Of course I asked if he got paper dollar bills and she told me, "In fact he did".
Around our parts the tooth fairy gave $5 for the very first tooth ever.
But for the last 2 teeth the tooth fairy gave $2 each. The most recent tooth was lost on Monday after her father picked her up and Belle claims put her knee into her mouth. :-) Of course it wasn't just dangling there already...
Now these were not of the paper money variety but a special type of currency.
The gold dollar coin. Very special indeed.
As much as Belle loves her gold money I think she thinks she is getting ripped off.
