Well, I ask kids all the time what happened to their lost tooth. Most put it under the pillow to get some kind of monetary surprise. Most kids report in the one to five dollar range. (The average is probably one or two dollars with five dollars being common for the first one). I often tell them I used to get 35 cents! Well, one time the “tooth fairy” told me it was kind of dark in there. She placed a five dollar bill under the pillow and retrieved the precious tooth. The next day, it turns out it was so dark, the tooth fairy accidentally had left a $50 bill! That’s the most I have heard so far. Ha..Ha..
Update: I just talked to Dr. Butler this morning (Monday, November 21). He said a $100 bill, which was thought to be a $1 bill, was the most so far he has heard! Wow, the tooth fairy needs some night vision goggles.
