When I was just a baby I had a toothless grin I drank my milk and ate my food

A tiny tooth grew in First 1, then 2, then 3 and 4

My smile was quite a sight My baby teeth were growing in

I could grin and snap and bite.

More teeth grew in pretty soon My mouth was full, you see.

Mom wanted me to brush them Not once a day - but three!

One day when I was brushing I gave out such a shout!

My baby teeth were wiggling And started falling out!

My Daddy called me "Snaggle Tooth" He thought that was so funny.

Call me anything you please Long as the Tooth Fairy brings me money

My Grandpa came to visit And a surprise he showed to me

He took his teeth out of his head,

Held them up for me to see "I hear you don't like brushing

Before you go to sleep.

You don't have to brush them all you know

...Brush just the ones you want to keep!"

      Welcome, MoneyLady! I liked your poem, I remember when my teeth began falling out, what a fun memory. I look forward to reading more of your work. :) I have a couple of poetry pages, too. I like to write ones that rhyme, but my best ones don't rhyme.
