from the mouths of babes // 008

in first grade, loose teeth are on the same playing field as santa claus.
seven years into the profession and i still can't quite stand to look at them.  whenever they come running at me, wiggling their snaggletooth with vigor, i always look away and tell them that loose teeth give me the hibbie-geebies.

today one of my boys lost his tooth.
but first he went through the fun 'my mouth is just bleeding but my tooth hasn't actually fallen out' stage.  when i sent him to the nurse one of my little chickadees came up to me and said:

"mrs. mylett, that just gave me the higgaley jiggalies"

tomayto, tomahto.
