    You remind me I need to grab a few gold coins the next time I go to the bank! It’s only a matter of time until Gavin’s start falling out!

    • March 2, 2012 at 2:32 am — Reply

      Yeah after this happened with my son, we made a pact to always keep cash on hand for just this sort of thing!

    She and Daly must be having a contest…she’s lost 3 in 5 days. She has one more that’s loose. Go figure!

    • March 2, 2012 at 2:32 am — Reply

      That is too funny!! I swear I see her wiggling other teeth now but she denies it!

  4. February 29, 2012 at 12:46 am — Reply

    Wow! Wonder what the going rate for teeth is these days. I received a whopping 25 cents per tooth back in the day :)

    • March 2, 2012 at 2:33 am — Reply

      We give $5 per tooth but yeah…it was 25 cents back in the day for me too!

    My nine year old did 3 in one week a couple of years ago, she nearly drained my tooth fairy fund with those bad boys!

    haha. Grace keeps asking when she will loose her teeth. I think she is ready for payday. LOL

    • March 2, 2012 at 2:43 am — Reply

      Yeah once my daughter figured out the payday, she started calculating.

  14. February 29, 2012 at 9:33 am — Reply

    She must be RICH ;). My daughter lost one last week. I can’t imagine 4.

    • March 2, 2012 at 2:44 am — Reply

      She is rich!! She is now trying to decide how to spend all of her money.

  15. February 29, 2012 at 9:34 am — Reply

    At one point my kids tried making fake teeth to trick the tooth fairy into stopping by more often! Your daughter is so cute with her missing teeth.

    • March 2, 2012 at 2:44 am — Reply

      Now that is really funny!

  16. February 29, 2012 at 9:46 am — Reply

    What the heck? Are you serious?! The tooth fairy pays way above inflation rates now; kids are lucky! I got a freakin’ dime when I was little.

    • March 2, 2012 at 2:45 am — Reply

      I know Liz!! I used to get a quarter. Now it is a serious business!! :)

    Wow that’s a whole lot of teeth! My boys are just growing their teeth. Losing them sounds so far away but before I blink it will be here.

    • March 2, 2012 at 2:45 am — Reply

      This kind of came up all of a sudden. I am still not ready for her to grow up.

  18. February 29, 2012 at 11:10 am — Reply

    I hear you – my son’s teeth are falling out like crazy! He just lost another one yesterday biting a corn dog stick at school; I’m going to need to refinance my house at this rate!

      Thanks Marianna! I am afraid that we set the bar too high with my son and now it is too much!!

    That’s quite impressive! I wish that I had been that clever as a child. That little toothless(ish) grin is so adorable!

    My son once asked his teacher if she would pull his front teeth out because everyone else was losing their teeth but him. The only issue was his front teeth weren’t even loose!!

    • March 2, 2012 at 2:50 am — Reply

      OMG that is soooo funny. I could totally picture my child doing that!

    My son, who is turning 13 next month, saved *all* his baby teeth because ‘I want to save the tooth fairy having to look for quarters, she can write me a check instead’ ;)

    • March 2, 2012 at 2:56 am — Reply

      Oh man I am embarrassed to admit that we also give $5 per tooth. We make them save half of it.

    What’s the going rate for a tooth in your house?
    I’m holding steady at $1.00!!! lol

    • March 2, 2012 at 2:57 am — Reply

      We give $5 per tooth. I remember asking when my son lost his first tooth because I had no point of reference and the majority said $5 so that is what we went with.

      No she didn’t but it was fun teasing her about it!

  44. March 1, 2012 at 9:48 pm — Reply

    Hahaha thank you for giving me a NAME for this – Taylor totally did it with her second tooth – apparently the Tooth Fairy overpaid her a bit on the first one so she thought she would snatch another one out LOL

      I know! I love the name and yes my kid is apparently a businesswoman first, kid second. ;)

    Thank you for linking up with me for Wordless{ish} Wednesday! I could never knock my own teeth out as a kid. I would let them dangle and twist them around and gross everyone out, but if someone came at me like they were going to pull the tooth out, I would FLIP OUT!

    • March 6, 2012 at 12:40 pm — Reply

      She didn’t really pull them out. At least I don’t think so but she is pretty resourceful.

    Hahahaha! The unfortunate thing is that kids will knock out/try to force their teeth out for a payday. I suppose as long as they’re not their adult teeth… ;) I remember when I tried to force my teeth out for the tooth fairy. :-O
