Light Switch Extender

Have a toddler or preschooler?  Can't quite reach the light switch?  Refuses help and won't use her stool because she doesn't need it?  If you answered yes to the above you just might live in my house.  Or, have a child very similar to mine at least.  I remembered this thing Aunt Glennis had in her hall bathroom when her boys were small.  It was an extender.  That way when the boys went in they could push up on the bottom and turn the lights on and off themselves.

I looked and looked for one for Paige, but could never find one around here.  I searched online a few times, but didn't find anything.  I got lucky over the weekend.  Wendy cleaned out the very tip top shelf over her washer and dryer.  You know the one that's so high up you have no idea how that stuff got up there in the first place, and cleaning it off isn't at the top of your to do list.  In fact it's not even close to the to do list. Yeah, she cleaned that shelf.  And look what she found:

It's exactly the same one Aunt Glennis had.  I'm just happy it was found in the top back of that shelf.  Paige loves it.  She can turn on the light, she can turn it off, she doesn't need us to do it for her anymore. I've been looking again online, and I found this one on Amazon.  They are definitely worth it.

Those are the coolest! Hmm, I wonder if it would help or if Zoodle would just turn lights on and off over and over. I could just put them in the bathroom which we keep closed most of the time.... Thanks for the linky!
