So tonight the tooth is in the pillow waiting for the Tooth Fairy to come. And I am once again hit by the reality of my little girl growing up. I am also hit by shock as it seems that the going rate for a first tooth is FIVE BUCKS! Are you kidding me?!? Just for minuscule piece of worthless dentin? Man, I wish I had saved my teeth, their value is going up faster than gold!
Aaah, yes, but...
Paying for the first tooth - five dollars
Seeing your child with a gapped tooth grin of pride - priceless
So if you'll excuse me, I think I hear the Tooth Fairy coming.
