My Lost Tooth – Part 1

lost-tooth (1)

I wrote this book when my son was 5 after he lost his first tooth.  I have wanted for that long to publish it but I have not been diligent with it.  I will hopefully find a way to get it self-published with software that I can use to illustrate it on my own.
I thought I’d share half of it with you to see what you think.  I hope you enjoy it…
My name is Austin.  I have a story for you.
Pay close attention, it could happen to you too.
My tooth got a little wiggly and I got scared.
Mom said, “It’s coming out soon, be prepared!”

“Keep brushing your teeth,
clean them well,” she said.
“Brush them in the morning
and before you go to bed.”
With each day that went by I could wiggle it more.
It started to hurt.  I couldn’t wait anymore.
I pushed it with my tongue all through the day.
I used my fingers to wiggle it to help it on it’s way.
I was playing at recess
when I felt something in my mouth.
My tooth, my tooth!
It had finally come out.
These are just the first 4 verses with 4 more remaining to complete it.
Feel free to comment below.  I’d appreciate any feedback.
Thank you as always for stopping by.  I hope you will stay a while and enjoy more postings to the right that offer tips on how to reduce stress and increase inner peace and happiness.
