Questions For You: Quick! Before My Kids Learn How to Read

We haven’t done one of these in a while, but I have one very important question and some other questions of no importance whatsoever.tooth-fairy

1. How much does your tooth fairy pay for a tooth?*

2. If I admit to my kids that there is no tooth fairy does that automatically give up Santa Claus and the rest of those guys?

3. Do your kids read your blog? **

4. What are you reading?***

5. Are you as disgusted by Brett Favre and Michael Vick as I am?

* That was the important one.

** Assuming a) you have kids and b) they know how to read.

*** I mean, clearly you are reading my blog, right now, but what book or books are you reading? This has nothing to do with anything other than the fact that I am curious.

  1. 1. $1/Sacagawea coin per tooth, fairy dust and a small gift. Nothing if the tooth has a cavity or filling.

    2. Yes.

    3. N/A no blog.

    4. Eragon, The Sugar Queen, What your fifth grader needs to know, and Emergency food storage & survival handbook: everything you need to know to keep your family safe in a crisis. (Ok – Yes, I am pretty weird).

    5. Tired of Favre and sick of Vick, hey I’m going to get that on a t-shirt!

  2. 1. $5 for the first tooth and a gold dollar thereafter. No real reason, except that we had a $5 bill.
    2. No. Though when they make that Santa Clause connection, the others E.B. & T.F. soon follow.
    3. No.
    4. Odd Thomas books by Dean Koontz. Great reads!
    5. Yes.

  3. 1. $1. I can’t believe your kids are old enough to lose teeth.

    2. There will always be a Santa Claus.

    3. My kids do not know I have a blog. They do not yet know what a blog is.

    4. Russka (again), Sun After Dark (Pico Iyer),

    5. Michael Vick – I tend to believe that we are a nation of second chances. Brett Favre has had his two.

  4. 1. There is no tooth fairy in Germany. All my teeth were put in a little wooden container, where they remain to this day. This so if a demon ever tries to steal your soul you can pay them off with the teeth. That last part’s made up, but I needed a strong finish.

    2. I guess this depends on how much they like presents.

    3. N/A

    4. To honor Darwin year, I’m reading The Origin of Species. Not the best decision as it’s a little on the dry side.

    5. Just get over it already start watching soccer.

  5. 1- $2 for the first tooth and .$50 every tooth after.
    2- Nope, my daughter knows the tooth fairy isn’t real, but still says that Santa is.
    3- Nope
    4- I am finally caving in and reading Harry Potter…I’m on two
    5- Farve, eh whatever. I love my Vikes no matter what. Vick…I can’t even start talking about it. Makes me ill.

  6. 1. We haven’t had to deal with the tooth-fairy yet. (but… it sounds like that tooth fairy is in trouble…

    2. No tooth fairy????? How can you even think that???

    3. Zoe likes to look at the pictures of herself… and the videos. She also likes to look at the photos of other kids on other blogs.

    4. The House of Night series. Easy quick reading. All I have time for right now.

    5. Um… sorry… I’ve stopped paying any attention to what’s going on there.

  7. 1. It was 20p in my day but I hear it’s up to £1 now.
    2. Quite probably.
    3. He doesn’t really read yet, so I’m lucky for the moment.
    4. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead cos I never really grew up and stopped reading YA.
    5. I keep my head in the sand so really have no clue what you’re on about, other than that they seem to be rather controversial characters whose escapades have not yet made it across to the UK.

  8. Yes. I have been an Eagles fan for 33 years (my whole life) and grew up in Philly. The day they signed Vick I took the Eagles sticker off of my car. And, I just hope no one covers Favre’s “retirement” in the future.
