The story of a girl

This is the story of a girl's loose tooth. This is the story of Michelle's mouth with the front tooth loose, but still attached. It was so loose that it was sticking out at a funny angle. So loose that it bled 3 times yesterday. So loose that when she woke up this morning, the back side of her tooth was facing front...it had twisted completely around.


This is the story of a girl who wanted the tooth to come out but was scared to have her daddy pull it. Said Daddy tried yesterday to no avail. Finally, he determined it should come out. This is the story of a girl who kicked and screamed and cried that it would hurt. This is the story of a girl who didn't even realize it was out when her daddy gave it a quick pull. This is the story of a girl who now "sounths a bith like thith."
This is the story of a beautiful girl who is lovely, with or without her front tooth, who can't wait for the tooth fairy to come so she can add her money to the savings jar for Disneyland. This is the story of a girl who has been smiling proudly all day long, anxious to show off how big she is getting.

This is the story of a girl who is growing up, oh so fast, but is lovely and I'm so glad she's mine.
