My baby is teething!
Nooo. Not those babies. This one:
Caitlin just had her 7 year Wellness check and they determined that she has some number of molars coming in. Later that same night she started complaining that her teeth hurt.
Considering that all of her friends are losing teeth willy nilly, Caitlin is taking her time. She started off slow: didn't get her first tooth until she was 11.5 months old (BTW, this seems to be holding true for the twins as well - still nary a tooth at 9.5 months.). She has lost a grand total of three so far which brought us into questions about what teeth are worth these days.
What's the going rate for teeth where you are and is there any difference for the two front ones vs all the others or not? We heard from wealthier friends that they were offering $5 a tooth. I remember being excited about a quarter under my pillow. Maybe a half-dollar, but it was always coins, not bills. What about you?
And what does the Tooth Fairy do with all of those teeth, anyway? Seems kinda creepy to keep them all, but at the same time...my baby isn't a baby any longer. Her teeth are just slow to get with the program.
