What's more adorable than a toothless grin?

Some people are really great at telling stories in a few sentences or paragraphs. I'm not one of those people. But since it is past my bedtime, I'm going to give it a try.
The facts are these; LadyBug had a loose tooth. It had been loose for a few days now, but today she really started to wiggle it with the goal in mind of getting it out before bed. A little apprehensive about doing what it took to get the tooth out, it was still hanging by a thread when she was sent to bed promptly at
When Mr. Bug got up just before 10:00 to get ready for work, he stopped in each of the Little Bugs' rooms to say goodnight, which reminded LadyBug that her tooth was bothering her and she couldn't sleep. And suddenly everyone was out of bed and giggles and schemes ensued. Mr. Bug suggested that they tie a string around the tooth and then tie the other end of the string to a doorknob and slam the door. Grasshopper added a creative twist to that. He suggested that they tie the other end of the string to a remote control car. The necessary materials were procured. There was more giggling as the plan was set into motion. At last LadyBug stood, poised with a bit of dental floss tied to her tooth, which was tied to a string, which was tied to the back end of a race car, control in her hand. She took a deep breath and set the car in motion.
It was a smashing success.
Getting the Little Bugs to school on time in the morning may not be so easy.
