DGS unexpectedly lost his first tooth at lunch at school. After lunch, the kindergarten class talked about losing baby teeth and the tooth fairy.
Then the few kids who had already lost their first tooth chimed up and explained that the tooth fairy brings $5!!!
When my daughter came to pick him up, DGSs friend explained to her that the tooth fairy brings $5, so she and DSIL gulped and put out $5 for him. She had thought of a little toy from the Dollar Store, but she did not have any in the house. This tooth had not been loose before being pulled out by the apple.
So they are visiting us today, and right now he is out with his mother at our Dollar Store spending his tooth fairy money.
Inflation has caught up with all of us. I was thinking a quarter myself. She says she certainly wasn't thinking of $5 either.
