Seems like no matter where I am or which set of grandchildren I am with, there are always soft toys to repair. Today it was Hunter’s little teddy bear with the head holding on by a few stitches. I think he is really excited to have it back all fixed and he can play with it again. He is such a sweet little man, saying thank you and blowing kisses to Nana in thanks. Love my grandbabies!
