Twin Jealousy is Causing Her Teeth to Fall Out. Maybe.

It was our last day in Turks and Caicos when my little twinlin Sophia came running up to me, “Mom! My tooth is loose, my tooth is loose!

Ahhh, what a milestone!

A first twin tooth, loose, in Turks and Caicos. There’s one for the baby book … er, if I ever work on them, that is. I’m a total failure in that department, but that’s another story.

Of course with the wiggling of Sophias tooth, twin competition had to show up.

Then, ALL of Katie’s teeth were loose {no they aren’t}.

There’s been many eye-rolls from Katie at the mention of Sophias loose tooth so I can’t imagine what she’ll say and do when Sophia gets money and she doesn’t. I wouldn’t be surprised if she didn’t start pulling and tugging on her own teeth to jumpstart the process.


Katie does need to accept it, but still, it’s both funny and heartbreaking to actually watch twin jealousy. Don’t even think of complimenting one without the other or you many be uninvited to a birthday this year, they even do that with each other. So many theatrics, I tell ya!


In any case, it took 2 weeks to actually fall out {truth, her teacher finally pulled it}.

And, tada! I have a toothless twinlin!!

So, what’s the going rate for teeth these days? Do you give more for the first?

    My goodness, been a long time since we had a first lost tooth, but at that time it was only a $1.00. Guess she would like what Robin mentioned. Thanks for stopping by to link, have a great week!!

    I think my kids got $1 per tooth. I remember scrambling to find some cash when I was caught off guard with lost teeth too. lol

    My son was 4 when he lost his first tooth, and I thought money wouldn’t mean much to him at that age. So we gave him a small toy for his first 2 teeth. Of course, we were stuck doing that for our two other kids since my son told them the Tooth Fairy brings toys at first, lol! All other teeth landed them 2$ because we have 2$ coins here in Canada, so that was easiest. Sometimes it would just be a dollar if that’s all the TF had in her pocket 😉

      Yep, toonies! 😉
      My oldest was the same, had no idea. My twins are almost 6 now, so they kind of know. Darn! lol

    That’s funny and sounds like a lot of drama too. Hopefully they will grow out of being jealous of each other. Even if they are twins, they are two different individuals and I hope they are happy with that fact. Enjoy them while you can! My son goes off to college next year. :)

      Oh yes, very happy, they are two completely different girls. Yet, with previous experience with only 1, there was no competition. With twins, or after more than one child, I think you really notice the competing for attention.
