It’s National Tooth Fairy Day!

Today, Feburary 28, is National Tooth Fairy Day and it got me to thinking about all those dangling, bloody teeth hanging on by a thread of gum fiber that I’ve had to witness and carefully brush for my kids over the years. I can never pull it out for my kids; neither can my husband. Last year, my daughter had to give up apples and corn because the entire top row of teeth had fallen out. Not a pretty look. Two missing teeth? Cute. Four? Scary.

My kids still get excited and nervous when a tooth falls out; even my 11 year old. Nervous that their teeth aren’t worth a dime because even though they swear that they brush them, I’m sure half the night they don’t. Excited about how much they might get. The going rate is our house is between $1 and $5. I’m pretty sure that the tooth fairy only leaves a $5 because she’s out of change. According to a Fox News poll, the tooth fairies around the country pay on average $4.66 per tooth. Not bad. 20 teeth, almost $100. Nothin’ to sneeze at.
