Little person

Last night, our child tied one end of a ribbon (a favorite 'toy' due to its extreme versatility) around the handle of our vacuum cleaner, then tied the other end around my husband's wrist.

"What are you doing?" I asked.

"I'm tying Daddy to the vacuum cleaner."

"Why are you doing that?"

"Because I like him tied here."

My husband and I looked at each other and raised our eyebrows.


  1. Oh my goodness! That made me giggle ..

  2. Me too! This made me smile. Kids do thibgs "just because!". How lovely. Thank you for sharing :)

    Fondly. Sky

  3. This made me smile and remember when my own children would say things like this. Thank you for sharing it.


  4. I'm glad it tickled everyone else as much as it did us. :)

  5. Conina,
    When my god daughter was four years old she took some string and bound me as best she could to her favourite chair. When her mother came home (I had been babysitting) and saw her daughter masterfully binding me her jaw dropped and her cheeks turned crimson. WHen she asked her precious little one what she was doing her response was close to, "because I want her to and it makes it easier to keep her here like this". My friend is slightly kinky and knows of my entire life style and immediately said, "well she takes after her Auntie, now doesn't she". To this day we chuckle and my god daughter is now 13, in girl guides and says the rope/knots part of Girl Guides is her favourite part. hehe Oh children do say the cutest things. ~a

    1. So awesome! My little one has just turned four as well. :)

      It's amazing to watch something like that develop.


Thank you for reading. I hope you'll let me know you were here - I like friends!
