Do you remember Your Toothfairy days? You would lose a tooth and put it under your pillow knowing that the toothfairy would come and take the tooth and give you....QUARTERS in exchange for the tooth?
( side note...how creepy is it now to realize that we were selling our body parts to someone un-seen late at night that could only creep into our rooms?? Who in the heck came up with this idea anyways?? )
But note that I said QUARTERS. Thats what I got. Usually 50 cents and I was fine with that.
So no wonder I about drove off the road this morning ( ok, not really, the kids just caught me talking back to the radio announcer who was telling the story!) when I hear that inflation of all things has raised the price of a tooth for the tooth fairy to $4 a tooth?? Are you kidding me??
Lets just say that I have already paid for those teeth thank you...and frankly, paid dearly for them. Not only did I help create them during pregnancy, but during the whole lovely teething process...hello...its not just the baby waking up every few hours in pain...its the MOM too! I feel as tho I have had every single tooth of theirs already...to think that I am now going to turn around and pay that money...$4 money for a TOOTH. Oh no. Nope.
I will say that our toothfairy is fairly decent tho...she leaves a Dollar ( usually a bill, not just coins) and doens't try to mess with your sleep either. She has a pick up place in the house, usually in the parents room, so you can rest up and dream about spending your dollar.
And this toothfairy representative is sticking to the price point. she has her reasons!
