What's the going rate for the tooth fairy these days? My son lost his first tooth the other day, and while it was still wiggly, he was saying how the tooth fairy would bring him a quarter. I thought that was kinda low, so I gave him a golden dollar coin, and he LOVED that. Someone I know said that the most she gave her son was $5, but he was complaining because a kid in his class gets $20 I cannot even imagine $20 for a tooth. I could see maybe (MAYBE!) $5 for a molar or a tooth that was exceedingly difficult or something, but $20? Is this normal nowadays? Am I just an old scrooge?
