Principal explains lost tooth to Tooth Fairy

When a little girl lost her tooth on the playground and couldn’t find it, her principal wrote a letter to the Tooth Fairy explaining the mishap.

When my daughter was five, she wrote a courteous letter to the Tooth Fairy to point out that 10 cents per tooth was a lot less than her friends were getting. The embarrassed TF raised the reward to $1.

  1. Aw, that was nice of the principal.

    I remember my mom writing a note to the “tooth fairy” after we did the string-on-doorknob trick to pull out one of my loose teeth, and it went flying and we never found it.

    With the rise of the credit card, we rarely had much cash around the house. Lost teeth meant scrambling to find the smallest bill we had around…which, unfortunately often ended up being $20.
