I asked her why she wanted to do that. She told me that a friend of hers got extra money from the tooth fairy when she lost two teeth in one day! So, she thought she'd fake the tooth fairy out by doing this.
I was at a loss for a minute! I told her that you can fake the tooth fairy out like that. She knows when a child looses a tooth. In addition, there was a risk that when the tooth fairy came that night and didn't see a tooth, she might start coming, thinking the child wasn't interested in her visits. This worked, and my daughter put her tooth under her pillow. Later, when I told my husband what had happened, he thought what I did was a bit of a threat.
It wasn't, but I was panicked!
I think it's wonderful that my daughter still believes in the tooth fairy. She also believes in Santa Claus. That one I find strange since we're Jewish, so Santa doesn't visit our house!
Nevertheless, I hope it's quite a few years before reality sets in!
