What Were Your Baby Teeth Worth?

Image credit: 

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. I just picked up the new issue of our sister publication, The Week. I happened to open up to this statistic: "The average sum left under a child's pillow in exchange for a lost baby tooth has dropped to $2.60 this year, from $3 last year." Even the Tooth Fairy is cutting back! Though that sounds like $1.60 more than I ever got. What was the going rate for baby teeth in your house?

3. Have you ever taken a class online? Did you have a good experience? Did you learn as much as you would have in a traditional classroom?

4. Time for another edition of What Are You Reading? Do you recommend it?

Have a great weekend!
