The last time I vacuumed, I accidentally sucked up Mrs. Potato Head’s tongue. My three year old witnessed this, and seemed a bit taken aback, but not too upset. I made a big deal out of how she needed to pick up her toys in the future. We are working on this skill, but she will only occasionally join in when I sing the “cleanup” song. Well, today I was vacuuming the family room, when all of sudden she ran in and scurried around picking up toys. She demonstrated speed and urgency like I had never seen before! I am so pleased. And one of these days when I’m feeling kind, I will take apart the carpet attachment and try to extract Mrs. Potato Head’s tongue.
