What happens to all the teeth...

We have been losing teeth left and right lately around here! Watch out! The poor tooth fairy is BROKE and knows her way to our house. Emily lost one of her molar's last Thursday and because it was such a big tooth and it happened while she was eating, the tooth fairy left her $5!! (I think that was all the poor fairy had on her at the time, seeing as Emily is 9-1/2 yrs old and we thought we were done with losing teeth for awhile). So lo and behold here comes Emily running into my office today yelling "I lost another tooth!" Sure enough, it was the tooth next to the the molar she lost, so now she has this double wide gap in the side of her mouth!


Someone better give the tooth fairy a loan quick!

So this prompted Emily to ask..."what does the tooth fairy do with all the teeth?" To which I replied "I think she makes a set of teeth for people who don't have any, like Grandma's and Grandpa's". Not bad of an answer considering it was last minute!

So what do you tell your children where the teeth go?

And really...who ever came up with the idea of a Tooth Fairy?
