Have you ever seen those balloons that clowns use to create things like poodles, and giraffes, and crowns? My kids received a pack of those today. Guess who got to do the creating? Me of course!
"Mom, can you make a puppy?"
I looked at the diagram and figured out what kinds of twists and turns the balloon needed. Soon, we had a rather long-nosed puppy.
"Make another," my daughter exclaimed.
As I was creating this second puppy, my son left the room. A few minutes later he returned. I felt a cold drippy sensation on the back of my leg.
"Puppy is giving you a kiss!" (Apparently he had wet the puppy's nose at the sink.)
I just can't seem to get away from slobbery dogs!
