    My poor kids. They got 1.00 for the first tooth lost, then .50 for each one after that! And they are only 13 and 16 so that hasn't been that long ago!

    DD lost her first two teeth on the same day, two bottom front, she got 5 dollars. Her next 4 she got 5.00 I believe, and the last one she lost she got 4.00.

    We've never done the tooth fairy thing. It was hard enough for me to do participate in the Santa bluff. Besides, I never have cash laying around and writing a check would have been too obvious.

    Wow, you guys give your kids that much for the tooth fairy? I say she's living in the big fat cash cow in your house then.

    DS10 lost his teeth and got $0.50 per tooth. It'll be the same with DS5 but you know what he does with his money? Puts it in the bank.

    Mine get $1.00 per tooth, nothing special for the first one lost or whatever...thankfully, they have lost them spaced out enough where it's never been a big deal! But they are excited for that one dollar, they put it towards their next video game or webkinz or whatever they want at the moment!!

    Our tooth fairy only gave a quarter a tooth!But because she was so frugal, all the kids have beautiful, strong, perfect pearly whites!(I think she knew the dentist on a first name basis, the clever old girl)Our grandkids get a quarter a tooth, so nothing has changed.

    Yeah my mom only gave us a quarter a piece for our teeth. I always thought fifty cents was a lot, but then I saw people giving out a dollar.
