i think most kids.. especially babies, are a little afraid of the vacuum cleaner...
he's loved it all along, he gets super excited whenever we fire it up and crawls (well walks these days) right up to it.
when it's not in use, he likes to pull off the attachment and make a vacuum sound whilst pretending to clean!
he also likes to get the cable and try and plug it in if i don't remember to wind it all up... so i have to remember to be careful with that!
funnily, he is also often found trying to sweep (in roo's bed the other day), mop or with the duster clenched in his hand... hopefully his interest in cleaning lasts!!
