Don't Vacuum

So I realized something the other day, I don't vacuum. Ever.

Kylia crushed crackers all over the floor and I decided that the easiest way to clean it up would be to use the vacuum. I pulled it out and Ky started SCREAMING. It was ridiculous. The thing absolutely terrified her. Jared and I tried to convince her that it wasn't going to hurt her by softly patting the vacuum, but it didn't help. She was afraid to even look at it.

After I finished vacuuming, I put it away in the corner closet, while Ky was watching. For the rest of the night, she stared at the corner like it was going to come alive and eat her. We tried to feed her, but she was too afraid to take her eyes off the corner closet. We finally had to face her in the other direction so that she would eat.

Morale of the story? Don't ever vacuum

I would like to thank Shauna and the many games of scrabble for teaching me how to spell vacuum

When she starts crawling, do vaccuum because she'll try to eat everything she can get her hands on. lol. We are going to Utah for Christmas, but won't leave til like the 21st or 22nd, so maybe we could get together on Friday night or Saturday (19th or 20th). Probably hard to do the night thing with our babies, but maybe early friday evening or anytime Saturday. Let me know!

It's funny that your daughter hates the vaccuum, that always made my girls stop crying. I have a friend that could only get her newborn to stop crying by running the vaccuum, so she ran it so much that it broke, lol.

Camden was so scared of the vacuum at first but one day he went up to it when it was off and conquered his fear and now he loves it. I'm sure Kylia will learn to be friends with the Vacuum Monster soon.
