i never knew about the tooth fairy till i was well into my teens, by which time most of my set of milk teeth had fallen off. so its existence, or non-existence, was irrelevant to me.
when my boy's lower tooth (incisor, to be exact) became loose & eventually fell off the other day,
i told him to keep it under his pillow & the tooth fairy will reward him for it. i even spiced it up a little by adding that he should brush it, so that he'll get a bigger reward if the tooth was nice & clean.
but he refused. all he said was that there was no tooth fairy.
i wonder if it's because kids these days are just more discerning, & not so easily deceived. incidentally, he doesn't believe in santa claus either.
