NEW YORK (Reuters) - Kelly Bird Pierre knew the world had changed when she heard what the Tooth Fairy was giving out these days.
The 39-year-old educator from South Orange, New Jersey used to get a quarter whenever she lost one of her own baby teeth. But when her daughter Oona and son Jacques went through the same phase, reports from their schoolyard buddies swiftly got back to her: $3, $5, even $10 a tooth.
Pierre was shocked. "A dollar still seems reasonable to me," she said.
