    Do you keep your kids' baby teeth?

    My daughter has just started losing her baby teeth, and although she thinks the tooth fairy has taken them, I have kept them!  Just can't seem to throw them away.  Maybe because they were a part of her.  (But then why don't I keep her hair clippings after a haircut, or her fingernail clippings, lol?)  Anyway, I have to make sure I keep them well-hidden while the tooth fairy is still making visits!  And it would be cool to show them to her when she's older.

    Do you think this is strange?  Have you kept any teeth?

    No it is not strange because you are her mother. I think it's so special to save those tiny little time caspules of our children's life. My mom saved mine and I thought it was so neat to see how small I was (I think she showed them to me when I was about twelve). I think it's sweet not weird.

      Glad it's not just me.  I think she'll like to see them when she's older, and they are so tiny.  Don't think she'll believe she had such tiny teeth!

    I have kept all of my kids' teeth. My parent's kept ours growing up. My brother and I found them while snooping for Christmas presents one

      Thanks, glad it's not just me!  I wonder, did you and your brother find them after you stopped believing in the tooth fairy, or before?

      I believe that was when we figured it out, but we were getting pretty old to believe anyway. Didn't phase us much, we never told our parents we found them either. We figured Santa out the same way- snooping for gifts...

      That's funny!  And nice that you didn't let your parents know that you knew.

    Of course. What mother would not keep them?
