Well, I guess there IS a tooth fairy.

We don't do Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny.  We didn't plan on doing the Tooth Fairy, but apparently she was willed into existence.

We've talked about the whole thing before the tooth losing process started.  It was just a fun thing that people do, but there wasn't really a tooth fairy.  But all of a sudden there was a lot of talk about fairies with the tooth fairy being high on the list.  And get this, even though I said she wasn't real, I was assured that she was real.

So a little over a week ago, mija got her first loose tooth.  We called abuelita and posted on FaceBook and everything.  Then began the process which started with delight and wiggling and ended today with despair and whining. 

Then during snack Friday evening, it happened!

Well, we had planned to do some kind of treat or reward for each lost tooth, sooooo we decided to go ahead and play the tooth fairy game.

Of course, the first thing every parent does is Google "tooth fairy amount".  It's been a long time since we've had dealings with the tooth fairy and the cost of living has gone up for humans and fairies alike we supposed.

I came across a cute website Tooth Fairy Letter.  It had tips for parents and printable letters from the Tooth Fairy. 

The tooth fairy brought $5 and a letter.  The letter congratulated her for losing her first tooth AND informed her she got "extra" this time because it was her first. 

{sigh} So, the tooth fairy is real.  I just wish it could have waited until the tooth fairy's next pay check!

I know we started out kind of on the "high" end, but thankfully, it will lower since it was her first tooth! Tooth fairy letter has our back!
Well, also, she's our only one, so I'm sure that makes a difference!
Thanks so much for reading and commenting!
