Not sure if this qualifies as an "interesting" story, but I thought I would share anyway...

One of my twins had just lost his second tooth (the other twin had yet to lose any). That night they made a tent to sleep in and I, I mean the Tooth Fairy, had no idea which boy had lost the tooth (they are identical, after all) nor could she find the tooth hidden under the pillow!

The Tooth Fairy had to call on Daddy for help! How much easier it would have been to have this special Tooth Fairy Pillow!

(I linked to the contest on my blog, too!)

I'm 36 weeks pregnant and I swear it feels like my canine teeth are loose. I really hope they don't fall out, but I bet the tooth fairy would bring me more than a quarter for one of 'em...

That is so cute!

Ever since my daughter saw a cartoon in which Little Bear lost a tooth, she has been asking to lose one herself!

My kids still have all their teeth. Oh how weird it will be when they start losing them! When I was younger my mom was CRAZY and tried to pull out one of my teeth with the PLIERS. She ended up cutting my gum and my dad was so mad at her... what was she thinking!?

My little guy is only just getting his first teeth, but I'll never forget the drama of losing one of my baby teeth while eating artichokes for dinner, and then having it be lost down the drain while it was being cleaned and my dad having to take apart the pipes to find it. Fortunately it was found and it made it under my pillow that night. A tooth fairy pillow sounds even better though! :)

My eldest has lost more teeth than I can count -- unfortunately, we never found the first one she lost.

My youngest keeps hoping that she'll be losing one soon!

I got one--my husband (we weren't even dating at this point though) and I were at an establishment where you drink out of large silver cups. You have to finish a cup to get it filled again. At last call, we typically pass the cup to someone who can drink a lot, quickly...in order to get one more re-fill.

He handed it to me, but apparently I wasn't fast enough in his mind because he tipped the cup, and chipped my tooth!

In all fairness, I already had bonding there from when I chipped it as a child.

At any rate, I called my mom (that night, quite tipsy) and told her I need a dental appointment ASAP! My dentist was my half uncle at the time.

I still dated (and married!) him and now it seems as if our active baby is trying to follow in Daddy's footsteps some days and knock out my teeth.

Being a teacher of young children, I find it disgusting when they come and show me their dangling teeth about to fall out. UGH! Loose Teeth!

One of my stories: I had a loose front tooth and my older cousin was giving me a lick on her sucker. She had just put it in my mouth, and as I was closing my mouth around it she yanked it out. I felt something hard in my mouth and thought it was a piece of the sucker. It was my tooth!

My kids were always trying to get more money from the tooth fairy than they have teeth! Some things that they have tried to pass off a lost teeth include, chiclets, rocks, or animal teeth from the old feed lot!

My mom used to carefully, meticulously tie dental floss around our loose teeth, then tie the other end to the basement door and...BAM!, you get it. It still makes me cringe to think about. The worst part was the cow bell that hung on the basement door that would clang really loud when she slammed it. The best part was scrambling around on the kitchen floor trying to find the tooth on the linoleum floor. Good times...very good times.

As a young kid, my mouth was about the same height as the doorknob on our back door. I was about to walk out the back door, when my younger brother burst in, hitting me in the face with the doorknob and knocking my tooth out!

kristie said...

well now that i'm totally grossed out reading all these stories... hahahaha! i don't have any interesting ones to tell. i do remember how my mom would cringe when i would show her just how loose my next-to-come-out tooth was. seems i'm going to be the same way!

I remember losing a tooth in grade 2 and washing it down the drain by mistake when cleaning it. I drew a huge cartoon story explaining what had happened and the tooth fairy gave me more $$ than usual... likely for all my efforts ;)

my dad always used to pull our really loose teeth out with pliers!!! I know, AAHH! so, to avoid that I would just rip them out myself!

Stacey said...

Hmmm... well, it's not actually about losing a tooth, but they do say that you lose a tooth with each pregnancy, and I certainly had my share of trouble the first pregnancy. This time seems to be better.. thank goodness!

I do remember my grandma yanking one of my teeth unexpectedly though. I guess she saw that I was scared to do it myself, so she just reached in, and out it came!!

My DD just lost her first tooth. Well, the dentist had to extract it b/c it would not come out on it's own. Her permanent tooth had started coming in behind it.

We will be losing ALOT of teeth around here the next few years, and we could definitely use that pillow!!

Enter me please!

My teeth never came out on their own - they had to be pushed out by the new teeth or pulled out by dear Gramma! I guess that is why I still have 2 baby teeth at 29 - no adult teeth to push them out.

My son hasn't lost any teeth yet, but this would be great when the time comes...

Pretty cool concept!!!!

Arianne said...

man, my kids havent started losing teeth yet, and i dont have any interesting tooth stories, except that i thought i was the richest kid ever if the tooth fairy left me a dollar!

April said...

I'm the tooth fairy at our house it seems - but one night that the tooth fairy was to come I realized that I had forgotten to switch out the tooth for the $1 - I asked hubby to go do the switch since I was already in bed. Come morning, we heard the biggest scream - son was so excited - Daddy/tooth fairy had left him $3 instead of the normal $1 - That's when I told Daddy he'd now set a precedent and the $$ was going to come from his wallet from now on - not mine!
