A way for kids to make money in the new economy.

The first time my kid learned about the tooth fairy, she exclaimed, "I need to lose more teeth, that's how I can make money!!"

My son has continued the tradition of mining teeth in exchange for money.  Last night, a slightly wiggly tooth managed to make its way into fairy world by way of the hard graft of a six year old.  He treated extracting that tooth, one bloody wiggle at a time, like a job.  He was paid, although since he is a minor, the fairy did not feel obliged to pay him minimum wage. It was more of a stipend than anything else.

Early signs of wiggle in the other front tooth are too early to call, but the fairy may be back to pick up a tooth before the week is out.
