I now think the song “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth” is funny but there was a time I hated it πŸ™‚

missing two front teethI think I was 8 when I lost both my front teeth a week or so before Christmas. Everyone around me thought it was hilarious to sing the chorus to me at least 10 times a day – me, not so much.

Even Santa got in on it as he left me some lolly teeth in my stocking – mind you, not the normal lolly teeth (ie a full upper or lower set) but full gums with just the two middle teeth in place…

Hated it and the family jokes. But 2 years ago, my son lost one of his front teeth (in winter mind you!) and the song was the first thing that came to mind. He only heard it 3 or 4 times though – I think πŸ™‚
