I hope he never loses his love of the vacuum!

This morning Monkey began asking to vacuum the floor before my eyes were even opened.  I’m sure a lot of people would find this annoying but since we have two, double-coated, dogs…well, it’s always good to have someone who enjoys vacuuming around!  I did make him wait until after we’d had breakfast but as soon as we’d cleaned up I suggested he go get the vacuum out.

You would have thought I’d just invited him to Disney World by the way his face lit up.  Of course, he didn’t want to actually USE my vacuum, he just wanted to watch me use it but he did help out a bit with his Dirt Devil.

I have high hopes that, some day, he’ll beg to use the vacuum and then proceed to vacuum the entire house.  Maybe even daily.   A girl can dream, can’t she?

BTW, day 3…he woke up dry.  I don’t mean to bore anyone but I will lose track if I don’t write it down and I did promise him that after 7 dry nights he could wear underwear to bed too.

    Not boring about the wetting at all. It is awesome and 3 days in a row is a great sign!

    Congrats – that’s awesome about staying dry! And my Ryan likes the vacuum too. However, he likes to turn it off and 52 times a minute and everytime he turns it on he gets that whole “open mouth” excitement face. I always tell him to either leave it on OR turn it off, so he’s finally getting better about it. LOL

    Monkey loves to turn it on and off too, it gets really old when you’re trying to clean and he keeps sneaking up on you and shutting it off, lol. He’d do it all day long if we left it plugged in. He does it less now that he has his own to focus on and his is MUCH quieter.

    Holly’s Mom…he used to be terrified of the new vacuum cleaner! We just bought a Dyson last summer and it’s really loud, especially on the hardwood floors. Somewhere along the line he has gone from fear to obsession. One I am totally going to encourage…I hate vacuuming!
