She was so excited when she found two presents and she was especially happy about the Ratoncito’s gift because her friends don’t get a visit from him. Every family is unique and we believe in blending traditions and making them our own. The Tooth Fairy and The Ratoncito share the tooth, they both play an important part in sharing their own culture (two sides of my daughter’s heritage) and encourage my kids to read in two languages by bringing books which in most occasions have some culturally rich or traditional story from each culture.
We had a couple of books that talked about the tooth fairy but we also had an Argentinean movie about the Ratoncito Perez and his adventures collecting baby teeth from children, which she loved watching when she was younger. When I was a little girl growing up in Guatemala I would leave my baby teeth under my pillow for the Ratoncito (little mouse) to come and take them during the night and leave me money.
The next morning Ariane woke up to find her tooth was gone and it had been replaced by two books one in English and one in Spanish and by two notes one written in English by the Tooth Fairy and the other written in Spanish by the little mouse. That made me realize how lucky our kids are to have such a rich cultural background and two languages and it really illustrates how being bicultural and bilingual enriches the lives of children and opens them up to appreciate and value diversity.

I’m sure that as many other moms I just refused to believe my little girl was growing up so fast. That would give my husband and I some time to decide who would get the important job of safely keeping baby teeth in our family:
Many cultures believe that when a person dies it is important to bury them complete (lost teeth and all) so some cultures threw their teeth in the fire so that whoever was in charge of burying them would not do so without their baby teeth. Who will rightfully claim his tooth?
We love our new family tradition where both The Tooth Fairy and El Ratoncito visit our children and always bring books in their own language to leave under the pillow instead of money. I love the idea of the Ratoncito and I know all of my daughter’s friends believe in the Tooth Fairy so we decided to have them both share this important job.
