My 6-year-old lost two teeth in one day; and, as always, she had something to say. To her father the blogger, she said: Might this not augur a sweet poem about me- sans cliché?
Dedicated with love to my precious little daughter, who asked me to write a poem on the occasion of her losing two teeth last Friday and then repeated her request to me again several days later (an hour ago).

Oh she’s sweet! Reminds me of my girls and the cute things they’ve said.
She is quite sweet. A little bit too sweet sometimes! 🙂
Ha! I love this — perfect rhyme and rhythm.
Short and sweet, can’t be beat;
a father-daughter effort, is a cavity-free treat. 😁✨👌
Yep; I suppose any cavities she might have had fell out with her teeth 😉
Your poem and your daughter made me smile. 😁
I remember when my daughter lost her first tooth, at school.
Pearly white milestones.
Yes, very much so 🙂
So sweet. So sweet 🥲 filled my heart up.
This is too cute. Also great your kid recognises the importance of your writing.
Yeah – and she constantly walks around sounding words out to see if they’re rhyming words or “off-rhymes” 🙂
Thank you so kindly, Eilidh ❤
Oh please tell me she actually said “augur”. Anybody else, I might have my doubts. But a child of yours, David? I believe it!
No, but she now knows the word because I put it in the poem 🙂
💕 💕 💕
That’s very sweet!
Thank you 🙂
She’s quite the little chatterbox!
How sweet she is. 😘😘😘 Tell her that many are reading about the loss of her teeth and wishing that it may grow soon. 😊
How sweet! It’s a big milestone isn’t it? I got very emotional when my eldest lost his first tooth 🥲
It’s very sweet, and it’s definitely not every child who loses two teeth in one day! 😀
Did she want her mummy?
Did you call her gummy?
no, and – no
