A Little Wiggle (Hopefully Part 1)

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!

I will keep you posted...


  1. What fun! I hope your tooth-pulling dream comes true.

  2. My son is 6 and in kindergarten. He has high hope and dreams of loosing his first tooth! I am not sure how I will feel about it---I think I will actually cringe. I loved how you wrote "It's Looths" because I could really hear that 7 year olds voice!

  3. Good luck! I'm keeping my fingers crossed. :)
