The only thing I remember about losing teeth is that I was told that if I could keep from putting my tongue into the empty hole, I would grow a gold tooth in the place of the one that came out. Now what's the first thing you do when there's no longer a tooth in that hole? Of course, you stick your tongue into it. So, guess what, no gold teeth for me.
I also remember my dad saying I'd have to be careful or else a bean would slip through the hole when I was eating. We ate a lot of beans so I'm not sure why I'd care about that.
I tell this story because the oldest princess lost her first tooth yesterday. It had been loose for a week or so and she was so excited about it. About 3 yesterday afternoon my phone rang at work. She was calling to tell me about the toothShe didn't talk long. She had other people to call. It was hard on her mama. She is losing her babies. They are turning into little girls.
I remember hearing a story about a fellow whose tooth wouldn't come out and he was a big boy. His dad had him lie down on the floor and they tied a broom handle to the tooth and the dad was going to yank it out. When he pulled up on the broom handle, it slipped and hit the boy in the nose. His tooth didn't come out, but he had a broken nose. Dosen't that conjure up an interesting picture?
Do you have any funny teeth stories? I'd love to hear them.
Have a good Tuesday. Do something silly. Make someone laugh.
