Where Did All The Teeth Go?

Do you remember losing your teeth as a kid?

I do not remember at all! I have no idea why.  I feel weird about it all and wish I could remember. I guess I was too busy worrying about when someone would give me something to eat all those days, years..

What's a favorite memory of your childhood in regards to losing and gaining your teeth?

  1. I can still distinctly remember wiggling a very loose tooth to the point that I would work up the nerve to pull it out. I remember losing many of my teeth for some strange reason. I also remember playing around with the new tooth when it erupted.

  2. My permanent teeth used to grow in before the baby teeth fell out. They really looked strange. Now I am trying to keep them. lol You know what strikes me as strange too, my parents paid a dime for them, I paid a quarter and my kids pay a dollar. :-)

    Colette, I had so much fun with the kids when they had loose teeth. I feel so bad for you and your parents for missing those times. I cherish so many times with my kids and they cherish theirs too. I thank God every day that my children love their children so much. My heart aches for you and fails to understand how anyone could live a day without their child.

  3. I remember losing one tooth in an apple during snacktime in my 2nd grade class, because it created a big ballyhoo. Other than that, I only remember the teeth I had surgically removed, which was a bunch b/c I have a small jaw. I don't really remember any coming in... :) Happy Friday!

  6. I don't really remember much to losing my teeth and gaining new ones but do remember that it took an extremely long time and I had to wear braces to correct their positioning for about 10 yrs.

  9. I don't remember losing (or gaining) my teeth as a kids...funny how those memories just aren't there! I do remember getting my wisdom teeth pulled when I was 14 - my mom stopped at McDonald's on the way home and got me a Happy Meal (it was an extra special treat - we *never* got McDonald's except for special occasions) I fell asleep on my dad's recliner, and when I woke up, discovered that my mom had eaten my Happy Meal! Apparently she didn't think I'd want it since it'd be cold. ;)

  11. Oh, this is an easy one! I remember the first tooth I lost, I woke up and instead of it being under my pillow, the 'Toothfairy' left me a real pearl necklace and a half dollar on my windowsill :)

    Hope you're having a great start to the weekend!

  12. Anticipation for the tooth fairy to come. I will also say that I have almost every one of my children's baby teeth. Why? Cuz. Just cuz I'm there Mom & they're my babies no matter how old they are.

  13. WOW! I don't remember honestly. I do have one memory and it involved the dentist. I had 8 teeth removed at one time. It was horrible!!!!

  14. Colette, you are most likely a winter. If you look at the outline of brown in the iris of your eyes and it is navy blue, then that would be a wonderful color for you. My mother is a winter. She looks stunning in red, navy, winter white...

  15. I don't remember losing or gaining teeth experience at all, as I was growing up in an orphanage/convent. There was no time to dwell on anything except for trying to earn my keep!

  16. The only thing I remember is being excited about the Tooth Fairy's visit.

  17. I remember losing my teeth, and the most vivid memory was of my dad. He would pretend to feel the shaky tooth, and just pop it out so swiftly that I didn't even have time to say "ouch!" He was great with this :-)
