It has been raining teeth here in first grade. I'll tell you what! I have NEVER had so many kids lose their teeth in two days at school. Usually they lose them at home. It could have to do with the fact that when they lose their teeth they get to put it in a little tooth case necklace that is just to die for apparently. So when the first one came out yesterday, everyone started pulling!
Why am I blogging about this you ask? Because it grosses me out!!! Have you ever had a child come up to you with their tooth hanging by a thread while pushing it back and forth in blood saying, "Look teacher!! It's going to come out!!" Ewww... It really is disgusting. Then the really creative ones figure out things to do with the dangling tooth, like sucking it in and out it's hole, twirling it with their fingers, turning it sideways and letting it protrude out of their mouths like a hill-billy, chasing girls around with it. Oh the joys of first grade. I really do love it... just not the whole teeth losing thing.
I was hoping someone out there had taken a picture of a tooth hanging by a thread... but alas... this is all I could come up with.
