A little over a week ago the oldest came home from Kindergarden and declared he has his first loose tooth. Much excitement. Other kiddos have lost teeth already and he had been asking "when, when will I loose a tooth. I am old enough teacher said kids lose teeth in Kindergarden." Followed by a list of names of children who have been visited prior by the tooth fairy.
I really cant recall how long it takes to lose a tooth. Growing up we left the tooth alone until it was really wobbly and then pulled it. We were encouraged to wiggle it and loosen everything up. In Hubby's family you leave the tooth alone completely to fall out on its own. Don't mess with it, ignore it.
Also I used to put my teeth in a cup of water by the sink where upon morning the tooth fairy had left a few coins in its place. Varying amount and type of coin based on a complex formula of tooth quality I assume. First tooth is always worth more. Hubby said the tooth fairy faithfully leaves a 50 cent piece for each tooth under the pillow.
So. Please share your knowledge of Tooth Fairy lore and methods of losing loose teeth below in the comments.

We spent from 8am - 9pm with minimal breaks chopping, dicing, and throwing things in gallon ziplock bags. I made Mom do any cooking required because I'm still a bit hit or miss on the smell of meat. We chopped somewhere around 40 onions and my new mission in life is to figure out where in the heck my food processor went. That would have been handy. Also it probably would have prevented me from trying to cut my finger off....maybe.
I took the next few days off after she left. We didn't get through all the recipes but most of them. I whipped out 3 more meals this morning and when the crockpot has finished its job tonight I will have a couple more to go. The big question of the day is to move to housework and laundry or start meatballs and stuffed peppers? Or, with my disdain of cooking unless I feel like it will I actually make supper on a regular basis or steal from my "after the babies are born" stash? Quality control is important after all.
The boys made a comment last night that has been on my mind. They were discussing when their dad would come back inside the house.
