Yesterday my son lost a tooth. This was a shock because he lost four of his teeth really early (at 4 years old), then all his other teeth got comfortable. In the morning he mentioned his tooth was shaking a bit and by the time my husband and I got back home after grocery shopping we were told it was waiting for us on the counter. I asked him what he plans to do with it and he told me my mom gave him a quarter. So I told him family will give him coins, but the tooth fairy will give him paper, lol.
Usually I would not give a Super hero, Santa or a Fairy credit for things we buy. But, I figured in this day and age, and as mature as he is for his age, it's important to preserve his childhood with more than just children toys, pictures of them at a theme park, etc. A little letter to Santa or a tooth hoarder may be a cute reminder of his childhood when he becomes a man and has a family of his own.
