Life Lessons For a Little Guy

As I strolled through the hallway I spied an attachment for the vacuum cleaner on the floor.

"Must be the little man left this behind,"
I mused. "I'll take care of it for him."

I reached for it only to catch sight of a three foot section of vacuum cleaner pipe gracing the music room carpet.

"Hmm. Guess I'll grab that, too."

Crossing the room, I glanced sideways to see the power head carpet attachment on the dining room floor.

"What is this? Something in every room?"

Sure enough, there was. As I sought to recover this last item I looked ahead into the front room. There, snaking through and around love seat legs, across the carpet, and into the doorway was the cord leading to the vacuum itself.

"Hmm. Looks like little man's definition of 'All done!' leaves room for improvement."

Smile. Sigh.

"Add that to the list."

your post reminded me of an Ana-quote.
When she was maybe 5 years old, she asked me if she could "broom" the kitchen floor. When she was finished, she proudly announced that she was "pitch done."
(She knew "pitch dark" meant totally dark.) She still makes up her own definitions!

LOL! If only our definitions could match up perfectly from the beginning ;) Love, Q
