Monkey has no teeth

My little man lost both his front teeth yesterday, prompting a visit from the tooth fairy last night.

Inflation is a killer on the tooth fairy’s pocketbook, let me tell you.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    We just give a dollar. I know some parents give $5 but our tooth fairy is the poor tooth fairy. ;)

    Our tooth fairy only gives a dollar, too. I guess my beef is that I only got a quarter for my teeth.

    $5/tooth is a bit steep if you ask me. Unless they’re big honkin’ teeth…

    I got a quarter too! *sigh* The good ole days.

    I think five dollars is an atrocious amount. But then these are kids who have $500 television sets in their rooms, too. And even if I could afford to do such a thing, I have no desire to waste $500 on a set for Drue’s room. That can go towards the HDTV flat screen in the living room. ;)

    Have you considered giving him a dollar coin.. something a little more interesting than just a dollar bill :)

    Or a two dollar bill…

    my parents gave us susan b. anthony dollars. they were SO COOL. we couldn’t bear to spend them, so we saved them up. when you consider how many teeth we lost and what $10 is to a kid, we were rich!

  7. ovrclokd says:

    and the pocahontas dollars are bright & shiny & GOLD… wish we’d had those when i was tooth-losing age.

  8. alchemist says:

    forsight and PLANNING – that is having a stash of coins for the tooth fairy to use. Hell, I think the tooth fairy was lucky to have any singles hanging around.

    And it’s SACAJAWEIA not Pocahontas on the new dollar coins. *grin*
