The tooth fairy… does she come to your house?6
It is such a big deal to lose the first tooth. And once you start talking to other parents, you realize there is a bit of pressure to make it special.
We started off strong with the first tooth and were so proud of ourselves… $5 for the first tooth (it was $1 for the rest of them) and a special note from the tooth fairy congratulating our child on losing her first tooth. After that it went downhill… we would go to bed and forget about hiding the money under the pillow only to find our daughter in tears because she thought the tooth fairy forgot and then scrambling to find $1 to hide under the sheets and explaining to our daughter that all her moving during the night must have moved the money from under her pillow. With three kids, there always seemed to be another tooth for a few years straight. The pressure!
