vaccum hazards...

My two (almost 3 year old) is a touch clingy. Think of a monkey holding onto his mother for dear life, and you have my Mason.

For example, one day I decided to go to the bathroom. I know, amazing right? Well here is the exciting part, I decided to go withOUT him. I ran up to my room and locked the bathroom door.

The next thing I hear is blood curtling screams. Like my child is really hurt kind of screams. Then I heard him say, "where is my Mommy?". Harmony told him and he started screaming even more shouting, "You took her, my Mommy!". I came back downstairs and the screaming and crying stopped immediatley. Then he velcro'ed himself to my side for the rest of the day.

Deciding that I needed a break from him, I decided to do what any good mother would do...get out the vaccum. He still hates it. When I turn it on, he runs. A few minutes of peace and a clean floor? Hmmm, I call that a win-win.

So I am busy vaccuming when I look down and blood is all down my leg. I didn't even feel it! I stop to clean it up but the teeny tiny scratch just kept bleeding. I was forced to sit and get it to stop, and Mason brought me a band- aid to make it all better. Needless to say...I learned my lesson.

Vaccuming can be hazardous, next time I will let the kids do it...

I think Mason is really missing his dad and is not goint to take a chance on letting you out of his sight.
