Sunday was an eventful day! Over breakfast, Oliver suddenly yelled, “My tooth has come out!” His middle 2 teeth on the bottom have obviously been wobbly for a while, but he didn’t notice until Thursday or Friday. So, it was a bit of a shock when one came out so quickly. His other tooth is very close to falling out. I believe the tooth fairy will be back again this week for that one.
I can already predict braces for my lovely little boy as the 2 adult teeth that are very visible, are growing so crooked 😦
Isabelle has had 2 wobbly teeth for a while. At dinner time, she was busy chewing her meat and then cried, “oh no, I think I have eaten my tooth”. A quick examination of the contents of her mouth (:-)) and we recovered tooth number 6 ready to go under her pillow.
What a busy and expensive night for the Tooth Fairy in the Jones House!
So how much does the tooth fairy cost these days. It was one dollar for our kids. The braces were $5,000 and all three of our girls needed them. Fortunately at that time the SAP dental plan was much better that it is now and covered about 50% of the cost
The Tooth Fairy is quite generous in Shanghai. The kids both got 50 RMB. I am pretty sure that Oliver will need braces as his bottom 2 adult ones are quite wonky!!
Jessica was adamant that her braces had to be off by the time she went to high school and she made it. She has also never had a cavity
