Ok, so my almost 6 year old lost her first tooth today and my question is....did you all save them or discreetly throw them away? After the Tooth Fairy or Molinator visited them and left something monetary for them? I'm not sure where I would store a tooth...it would look creepy (to me anyway) in a shadow box....yet, it's her first one....Any ideas?
My mom saved all of mine, lol. When I found them I thought it was a bit creepy. DS is 7 and got his first lose tooth last Friday, but he hasn't lost it yet (and refuses to let me pull it, lol). I plan to save it, not sure for how long though, lol.
I'll probably save my kids because I get too sad to throw away anything away that is representative of them being little. I have never thrown away a single hair of DD's that I cut either, and I KNOW that's creepy!
I have a box with Roxy and Mason's baby teeth. I just put in a zip lock bag. But there are really cute little jewerly-box-looking cases at engravery shops you could put that in. (If you decide to keep it.)
Well, I saved her tooth in a baggie with the date marked on it. She wrote the Tooth Fairy a letter letting her know she lost her tooth, it was very cute. So, "the Tooth Fairy" wrote her nice note back (found it on a tooth fairy website lol) telling her it was neat that she lost her tooth, to eat more fruits/veggies and to brush them everyday. Also the Tooth Fairy left her one of those gold looking $1 coins and she was very excited about that. Thank you for all the advice, I do believe I will be keeping it for awhile.
I just found out the the tooth fairy has a little help these days! New research has shown that our kids babyteeth contain adult stem cells that could be used to save their lives in the future. You can now save babyteeth "forever"... There is a company that will cryopreserve your child's teeth! Check it out www.store-a-tooth.com
