Things your parents never told you

What the hell am I supposed to do with the teeth the tooth fairy takes anyway?

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.

    Good question…

    If you’re the old wive’s tale type, my grandmother always told me to keep them in a safe place, because if a dog got ’em you would grow a dog tooth..

    I don’t think you have much to worry about the kid sprouting Doberman chompers, but it’s still interesting to hear backwoods conventional wisdom.

    I’m pretty sure that my mom kept most of mine in a small tupperware container, so that I could keep up with how many I had lost, and it was interesting to me.

    My mother placed all our of teeth in an empty tylenol bottle. I remember opening it when I was about eighteen to check ’em out. Half of them were broken in half and not a pretty sight to peer at.

    Just a suggestion. :)

    I don’t think it matters where you keep them, just be sure to keep up with them. We have kept all of Donovan’s, unfortunately, I never know where I placed them. We find them by mistake all of the time. I guess I should consolidate them into one bottle and put them in a medicine cabinet or something. Kids love to see them and count how many are gone.

    Recently I learned that it is also a good idea to note when they came out. My son’s latest question to me was “Did my front teeth come out in 2003 or 2004?” LIKE I REMEMBER!!!!!!!
