The Tooth Fairy

Dear Tooth Fairy

Please can you come and take Alfie's first tooth tonight and leave him a little silver instead? Please try not to drink too much wine and forget!

Thank you so much
Alfie's mum xxxxxx

P.S Does anyone know the going rate for teeth these days?

In our house the tooth fairy leaves £1 but quite often she forgets and the children don't seem to mind too much. They understand that the fairy sometimes is too busy and couldn't find a slot (a bit like shopping with Sainsbury's on line)!

But I did know someone who once got £10! for one tooth!!!

Yep its a quid, or a euro depending on the tooth fairys nationality, but it has to be a really shiny coin. They make the teeth into little spades you know.
Fab pic of Alfie, what a grin!

Awwwwww - his first tooth!! You forgot to mention it when we met up today ..... hurrahfor Alfie!
Hope the fairies came?

Oh, my mistake - I was convinced that this entry was headed by Thursday's date and as we met up on Friday .. well, you can see that I would have thought it had slipped your mind ..... I must say my mind is very slippery lately! hee hee
I'm so pleased that the fairies got their act together - well done them.

Here in France he gets 2 euros, so I think that would be about £1.50 §

Crumbs, it used to be an old shilling when I were a lassie...(and you could still change it for 2 and a half pence!)

$5 here, which probably works out to around 2.50 GBP. which reminds me, we owe for a molar lost last weekend! hahahah. bad tooth fairy.

Oh it was sixpence at most, when I was little!!! a whole shilling?

LG gets a pound, when we remember!

Then she leaves it lying on the shelf for weeks, until I reclaim it and she never notices!!!

What a bad mother.
