What do children these days get in the UK? More like £1, with 1 in 12 getting £2. Such a rise is in line with that of house prices. Amazing what you learn, isn't it? You can be sure I'll remember that piece of useless information instead of something really useful. Very annoying it is too!
Why the thoughts on teeth all of a sudden? Well, chez nous, we're having an avalanche of falling teeth. There are at least 6 wigglers on the go, between both boys. My eldest is so fed up with one that he tried yanking it out this evening, to no avail. We offered the use of pliers, the car, the radio-controlled car, the cat (having his food bowl shaken at the end of the garden...) etc. Each suggestion was turned down, to our chagrin, in favour of a tissue and brute boy strength.
My youngest is just letting it all take its course and thinking about reaping the benefits of tooth fairy finance when the great fall day comes. He may already be examining placements for his investments; those that give good growth, with enamel hard security.
Here in France, it's not £1 that they get but 2€ which is slightly more although pre-euro days, it would have been 10FF. Some petits souris only stretch to 1€, so one has to make sure to lose one's teeth in the most finanacially advantageous household. If one has the option of a 2€ tooth fairy or a 1€ petit souris, obviously it's best to keep the SuperGlue handy until one gets back to the highest paying option.
These days you can earn serious money from your teeth. I think we spent our pennies on sweets...
