Back to Pinterest . . .
Yes! Wouldn't that be the greatest!! I tried twitching my nose (like "I Dream of Jeanie (Genie)") but that didn't work so that wand sounds perfect.

I'll take 7, one to attach to each of the tails of my current critters, then I shouldn't need one for me.

I can relax in my recliner and read all those great tales that people keep recommending over on the Books subforum.

Yes, we definitely need to train our critters to do the housework. Besides volunteering to lick the dishes clean. If they could just vacuum up the pet hair I'd be happy.

Twins born this morning after a very long labor. I'm an official grandma. I can't imagine what it will be like seeing them for the first time later today. Those of you who are grandparents probably know how I feel...like walking in a dream. Seems "like yesterday" I had my own. My youngest now a dad...

Fantastic! I hope that Mom and babies are well. Give us an update after your visit. There's nothing like the birth of a child that brings a smile to my face.
