Too cute!

My kids used to freak when I pulled out the vaccuum. Now they freak if I don't chase them with the hose attatchment.

Nothing says "good parenting" like trying to knock over your toddler with a household appliance.

(Also, from the audio volumes, it sounded like your wife was doing the recording, which means that it was you operating the vacuum. You vacuum dude? For shame! Next thing you know you'll be using moisturizer on your face... uh, nevermind.)

Z-Dub's a little older. He actually likes to do the vaccuming himself now. I love it. I get to sit and watch.

Cooking, vacuuming... he'll be fully trained in no time.

(from Mrs. LIAYF)

xbox - That's the plan, xbox, that's the plan. (Evil laugh)

Paul, Mandy and Jake said...

That is one of the truest comments EVER! Jake just loves the vacuum to the point where it makes it hard to actually use the thing! But a paper shredder or blender...NO WAY!!!

@Ed - Who needs toys when we have power tools and appliances!

@Sci-Fi - Still laughing...touche' on the moisturizer comment!

@VegasDad - Now that will be a time to celebrate in this household.

@DC - I would have a million more if I carried the camera around more often! Thanks.

@Xbox - As Mrs. LIAYF says, that is our 'evil' plan.

@Mandy - It's amazing which loud things they choose to love and which they choose to hate, isn't it?

Love it! It's just amazing to me how courageous the little ones are. They don't fear what we would expect them to. I love how he just laughed at the vacuum. He's going to have the world in the palm of his hand!

@Rob - Thanks. Lukas never ceases to amaze us. I'm sure you feel the same way with Cooper. Being a dad is great, isn't it?
