d'ya think Evil Knievel was scared of the vacuum cleaner?

See that little guy on the left? Cute little cheesy smile. Jason. He is such a trouble maker!
Little mister dare devil. He loves the swimming pool. We haven't had swimming lessons yet, but he doesn't let that stop him. He jumps off the side, right into the deep end if I'd let him. He wants to go under the water. He doesn't even wait to make sure mommy is ready to catch him. Just goes for it. Heaven help me, this boy is going to give me cardiac arrest.

He loves to climb on things. Gets into everything.
He is afraid of nothing---except the vacuum cleaner. I pull that baby out of the closet and he's running for the other room. I'm not sure what I did to traumatize him with it; but it does make a handy tool when I need him to go in his room, shut the door and leave mommy alone for a little while.

Maybe I should put the vacuum in the swimming pool, so he'd be a little less eager to jump in?
I love that he's so eager to try to swim, but really- the kid's scaring me to death.




Annette, are you reading??? My daughter just asked me what a semi-colon is. I showed it to her on the keyboard and she said "that's not what I mean". I replied, "I'm not really sure anymore, I just use it when I think it's appropriate". She replied, " I just use it to make winky faces". ;P
Maybe I should buy your book!

Oh, how I love little boys!! I would babysit and take them to the beach for you if you lived closer :) Good luck little mama, you have some handsome little men!

Boys are so fun! I like their faux-hawks btw :)
Anywho, boys just keep you moving and they are so exhausting sometimes, but you will never have a dull moment around your house! Ha Ha
Thank goodness you have a trump card - I wish the vacumn cleaner worked for me I have to threaten Brussel Sprouts for dinner!!

Has he been told a bedtime story about a vacuum cleaner that eats adorable little boys?
Too cute. Keep an eye on that one, especially at the pool!

That's funny that he's not afraid of anything but the vacuum!

I've nearly had a cardiac arrest every summer, what with trying to teach my 4 kids to swim and trying to ensure we're also slathered with plenty o' sun block. Ahh, I love summer, but will be grateful when pool season ends...

PS: I second what Kristina P. says. You are cool, and their hair? Uber cool.

My little guy jumped into the pool a few weeks ago-w/o his floaties!!! His eyes were all bugged out when made it to the surface-and he remembered! Luckily, I grabbed him and pulled him out FAST. He's quick to put those floaties on now. I have a video of him on FB:)

That's because your vacuum is possessed. Watch from timecode 2:50 to the end and you'll know EXACTLY what I'm talking about or jump straight to 4:39 and watch until 6:09.

I'm scared of them, too...
