Yes, my children have named our vacuum cleaner "Frank"
yes, Lucas is scared of it.
Perhaps because he has encountered "Frank" too few times in his 2 years.
When you only encounter a loud machine on rare occasions, I guess it can be quite scarey.
Let's face it, I try to keep the house relatively clean and picked up, but it is difficult with 2 little ones around. Seems like I clean something only to find it dirty again within the hour. But I really want to do better.
I decided to set my kitchen timer to go off every 3 hours throughout the day. When the alarm sounds, I will clean for 15 minutes. It can mean sweeping the floor, cleaning the bathrooms, etc ( regular household chores like washing the dishes and doing the laundry don't count). I'll let you know how it works in a few days.
You won't believe this timing, but the alarm just sounded!
Off to scrub a toilet!
By the way, if you don't know who Frank is, you probably don't have a little boy (or girl) in your house. You'll have to rent Disney's Cars...it's actually really cute!
