80 Teeth. (The Tooth Fairy Better Have a Good Savings Plan in This Economy)

Sure the talk of the nation is interest rates, drops in the stock market, and the financial mess we’ve made, but we’re wondering what affect this will have on the Tooth Fairy’s investments and savings.  After all, we will have 4 mouths that will soon need her services.

All 80 baby teeth passed inspection at the dentist, and with good report. We can plan on the first ones to start falling out in the next 1-3 years, so let’s hope that the Tooth Fairy has a sound financial advisor.

The boys did so well for their appointment.  This was their first “real” dentist appointment that included a cleaning.  They sat in the chair by themselves and did everything they were asked with no complaints.  (Insert a big sigh of relief!)

Brooks suggested that we sell their old toothbrushes since they got new ones from the dentist.  Any takers?

    I don’t know…those might just be lucky toothbrushes you have there…a good report on all 80 teeth and FOUR well-behaved boys??? They might have market value afterall! HA! Congrats on a good report!

    Yeah! I’ve been wondering what the going “Tooth Fairy” rate is, too! I’m pretty sure my Jacob will have a loose tooth sooner than later. He had all his teeth super early and is already getting his 6 year molars at 4.5!

    Our Tooth Fairy brings gold dollars. I hear alot of Tooth Fairies bring more, but ours set the limit to $1 and chose to make it special with “big gold money” as our boys call it.

    I feel for you. We’ve got 4, but spread out a little. The gold dollars great because the kids like to save them because they’re different from the rest of their money. $2 bills are special too. I found a free letter from the Tooth Fairy that I really like at http://www.toothtrap.com that I can print up and cut out and put under the pillow with the money.
