There are few things more exciting in a kid’s life than the day he/she loses a tooth. It’s a sign of growing up, a public statement of maturity, a point of pride to brag about amongst your friends… plus you get money from the tooth fairy!
What’s the going rate exactly?
I posted a throwback 4th grade photo of myself last week and someone said they didn’t think it was 4th grade because I still had all my baby teeth. Sadly, it was 4th grade. That’s the year I finally lost my first tooth. I got $20 for waiting so damn long. I keep reminding Mazzy she may have inherited my stubborn baby teeth gene, every time she tells me about another friend who lost a tooth. Sorry, sweetie. It might not happen for you for quite some time.
Meanwhile, here are 20 kids beyond excited about the growing gaps in their teeth.
“LOok Ma, I lost a tooth!”
“Make sure the camera sees it!”
“I losT the top tooth!”
You can drive a truck through the gaps in these teeth!
“Only mashed potatos and smoothies for me!”
