Star Child

I haven't talked much about Kiddo lately. He is growing so fast as well - suddenly before my eyes he has turned into a big kid (figuratively and literally). I just have to stare at him sometimes; soak him up and try to memorize his face as it is right now because tomorrow he'll be all grown up.

We had a MAJOR, MAJOR milestone moment last Sunday with Kiddo. He helped me vacuum the floor!!! Kiddo has always had a monumental fear of vacuum cleaners, stemming from when he was just a little toot. Ever since he could walk he would run and hide when I vacuumed the floors, screaming and crying most of the time as well. For the past year or so, he was happy to go into his room and play with the door shut while I vacuumed. If I started it without him getting in there first, he would run as fast as his little legs would carry him.

A couple of months ago, I absolutely had to vacuum and he didn't want to stop playing with his Incredibles figures on the couch. I told him to just stay there and I managed to vacuum the room without him getting upset (he did squish himself into the couch as much as he could when I came near though). After that day, he still went back into his room most of the time and only a couple of times was brave enough to sit on the couch.

However, on Sunday, he wanted to sit on the couch, and while I was vacuuming he was shouting something at me. I couldn't hear it, so I asked him to say it again and I saw him mouth the words "help you".

Well of course I stopped that vacuum right away and motioned for him to come over and I kid you not - he grabbed the handle and started pushing it back and forth. Once he got the gist of it I turned it on and he vacuumed our living room rug!! I was so proud of him for overcoming his fear (and secretly began plotting my new and improved housework strategy!).

It was quite the moment!

Last week Hubby and I were talking to him and we were asking him if he knew our names. He got them right and so I asked him if he knew his last name. He says "Kiddo uh, uh, uh, Kiddo...SCOUNDREL!!!" :D

We had a good laugh over that one!

There was another Kiddospeak I was going to tell you. I can't remember it now. Darn it.

Well if it comes to me, I'll let you know.

Until,
D :)
