Have you ever pulled out the tooth of a little 7 year old?
I haven't. But it's something I would like to do-- seriously.
Given the fact that I have been a first grade teacher for the past 6 years, it surprises many that I haven't had the opportunity to assist with a loose tooth! Oh, I encourage, test, and wiggle those teeth, but never have I had the priviledge of actually pulling one out!
Today, a little guy, came up to me with a wide gap-ish grin. He pointed to one of his front teeth with his tongue and said, "It's looths". I gave him a smile and a wink and went about testing to see if it was ready for the Great Pull.
Nope. Still too attached.
I told him, "Keep wiggling with that tongue. Come and see me first thing in the morning!"
I sure do hope little A gets to wiggling that tooth tonight-- but not too much!
I sure do hope little A has a tooth ripe for the plucking tomorrow morning!
I sure do hope I get to help pull my first little tooth tomorrow!
