Gap

Some time ago — probably a year or two — Fiona took an unexpectedly hard trip to the ground and banged one of her front teeth pretty hard. The tooth died. Normally, this isn't a problem; the adult teeth grow in, the old ones come out, life goes on. In this case, however, the tooth recently became infected, and the dentist said, out it goes.

After trying unsuccessfully to schedule a pediatric dentist to do the job (our dentist didn't want Fiona to associate her with painful experiences; very shrewd of her) we wound up back with the original plan, which was to have our dentist pull the tooth.

Fiona did great. She didn't flinch, didn't complain, just raising her hand when it hurt, like we told her to. I haven't heard any complaints out of her, either — mostly the giggly joy of a normal kid with a tooth out.


What's the going rate for the Tooth Fairy these days?

I think it is five bucks, but not having any children, I am hardly an expert...

We do $2 a tooth.

Wait... two bucks, five bucks... I didn't even know the mint made coins in those denominations. I was under the impression it was always supposed to be a shiny metal coin. (Well, that, and sometimes we got ice cream.)

You got ice cream under your pillow? Wow, what a mess. Unless it was that Astronaut Ice Cream or somesuch.

I think the mint does make coins in denominations of more than a dollar, but I was thinking more along the lines of several smaller coins, maybe Sacagawea dollars.
