This is Melanie's vacuum (thanks, Jon
). Last night, with Grandpa Bob and Granny Franny baby-sitting, Melanie decided that she needed to clean the carpet. With Granny Franny's help, we first picked up all our toys. Then we vacuumed, but only after making sure, "Granny Franny, you scared of the vacuum?" When assured that she wasn't, Melanie began.
Then with the main room done, she took to the carpet in our bedroom. Again, safety first. "Daddy, you need to move. Go to the other room. I don't want to hit you."
