Sayger is losing his teeth left and right. Last spring it started with his two bottom front teeth. He bit Shandler on the bum during a wrestling match and the teeth fell to the floor! We could only find one of the two, so the tooth fairy had to have a note of explanation. This fall the two top teeth started to wiggle and one day Sayger got off the bus, walked into the house and started to talk to me when I noticed his front tooth had something stuck on it. As I looked closer the entire tooth was turned sideways in his mouth and hanging by a thread of tissue. I laughed and sent him to look in a mirror. He was mortified! " Mom, what can you do to take this out?" he said. I sent him for a small piece of tissue and in one tender pull the tooth was in my fingers. He was thrilled and the tooth fairy made another visit! Sayger is taking Taekwondo this year and his dad calls him "Grasshopper"-from a show he watched when he was much younger. He also calls him snaggle tooth, because of the last tooth left and the direction it is turning. The other night at dinner Sayger asked his dad to not call him grasshopper. So Kent suggested "snaggle hopper." We all laughed, including Sayger. So until the tooth falls out he will be our little "snaggle hopper."
