...once a week poetry treat for the young and the young at heart...
How exthiting, a thoose tooth! Cute poem.
Thanks, Betsy! Loose teeth are always exciting (except I'm squeamish about the blood :o).
I remember those "tongue tug-o-war"s!
I know, Mary Lee! It seems the tongue has a mind of its own when there is a loose tooth around. =)
I had more than one first grader do this, Bridget. Must share this with the primary teachers!
Thanks, Linda! Losing a tooth at school is even more exciting than losing one at home. It can be a challenge though for those teeth to make it home. =)
Lots of fun, Bridget--both my kids lost their first teeth while eating. And the thooth fairy pthayed.
Mine, too, Buffy! When they had particularly wiggly teeth that didn't want to let go an apple always did the trick. =)
"wobble, wibble, sway"--- love that! This must have been a fun one to write. :)
Thanks, Michelle! Yes, this was fun to write, but I never enjoyed losing my teeth as a child and haven't liked the process for my daughters. Thank goodness their dad is not squeamish like me. =)
What a sweet poem. Love the last lines--proof!
Thank you, Violet! The tooth fairy makes the pain worth it, I think. =)
Oh goodness, thanks for the laugh! A little person I know is very excited about showing off his loose tooth, but is not at all eager to have anyone tug it! Excitement and fear combine, but the promise of a visit from the tooth fairy wins in the end!
You're welcome, Keri! Thank you for visiting. I can relate to your little persons quandary - even as a mom! Hope the tooth fairy is generous with him. =)
