I was thinking maybe $2, but her friend was telling her all about how she got $5 so we didn't want to disappoint. I told her you get more money for the first tooth, but don't expect as much for every tooth!
She doesn't believe in the Tooth Fairy, but likes to play along for the magic and fun of it. So she put the tooth under her pillow last night, then woke me up at the crack of dawn this morning exclaiming that she got $5. She was thrilled.
A few hours later she felt sad that her tooth wasn't there anymore and she wanted it back so she can look at it. So she wrote a letter to the tooth fairy asking if she could have it back, sealed it in an envelope and put it under her pillow. As a bribe she included 6 pennies and a dime. We'll have to see what the Tooth Fairy makes of that tonight.
