It's like Christmas

Do you know what that is?!?  Lines in my carpet (and yes, it's pink carpet - what can I say, we're renters).  Those lines were caused by...a new vacuum!!!
Maybe I need to replace all of our cleaning supplies?  It would be worth it if the kids would get this excited about cleaning.  And no, Paul and I do not typically vacuum with our shirts off.
So, it's out with the old...
and in with the new!
You know you're old and boring when a vacuum is this exciting.  Does it also make me a boring mom or mean that my kids are deprived if they are as excited as I am?

Yay for a new vacuum cleaner! We had to get a new one last year and I still love it :) I'm way excited for you! And how fun that your kids are loving vacuuming! Mine are terrified of the vacuum, they always grab their toys and flee for safety when I pull the vacuum out ;)

Hooray for the new vacuum, we got one last year and I was amazed at how much more it picked up, it really is the simple things in life that make it fun, isn't it? Although, really, when we have to buy things like that, I wish I could spend the money on something else instead!

Only people who drive mini-vans get excited about new vacumes. You act like you just bought something important like new golf clubs.

I would be super excited, too!:) My sister in law got that Roomba, and I swear it NEVER stops!:) She has 4 boys and every time she leaves the house, she turns it on and lets it roam free...and her carpets always look great! I totally hear you! Happy Day!:)
I love that Noah never wears a shirt...or loves his underwear...my kids are the same way. Brother decided he needed to sleep without a shirt on tonight...I guess it means he's a true boy.:)

I just wanted to leave a note and let you know I've been enjoying reading your blog for the last few weeks and thought I would finally say hi...so "hi".

PS having a nicely vacuumed house is definitly one of my favorite things!---HAH I'm boring and old too.

A new vacuum can always inspire excitement, whether young or old. I think your kids enthusiasm shows what a good mom you are. They see the wonder in every day objects. Plus, a vacuum cleaner is cool. It makes loud noises, sucks things off the ground, and the new one looks like it even has a plastic case that shows the dirt twirling around. Could it get any better? :) By the way, I'm jealous that you have carpet to use a vacuum on. Oh how I miss it!

Congrats on your new arrival! Enjoy her! Ü I LOVE vacuuming! The bagless ones are so great too - I have this morbid fascination with emptying it out after each room to see how much junk I got out of the carpets! It makes me feel like I actually accomplished something!
