Tooth Fairy Finances

by Nikki Willhite

Christmas can be such fun. You can also learn some interesting things.  Such was the case this year for grandma and grandpa.

We had 3 sons and 9 grandchildren at the time.  We all live near each other, so Christmas is a ton of fun.

What does this have to do with money?  I am almost, for once, without words. However, I'm sure there has to be a lesson here.

Turns out when kids get together they talk about money.  They talk about how they get money.  Apparently not only do they believe in the Tooth Fairy, but they have discovered that some Tooth Fairies have more money than other Tooth Fairies.

So one of my grandsons, who was making a lot more money from his Tooth Fairy when his baby teeth came out, decided he needed more teeth!  Where to get them?  Why.... his cousin, of course!

So he made a deal with him.  He gave him $1.00, with the promise that when his cousin lost his next tooth, he would give it to him.

Hum!  Ingenious, yes.  Aside from that...not so sure.  His dad made him give back the money and the "deal" was canceled.

Take what you want from this story.  A lot of us have done the "Lemonade Stand" thing.  I have to admit...never thought of this one!
