Lightweight Vacuum Teaches Kids to Clean Up After Themselves!

Being 9 months pregnant, I wasn't about to drag a full-size vacuum cleaner up and down the stairs to clean my home. Instead, I purchased a lightweight stick vacuum for around $20 that I could store in my hall closet for quick cleanups. Little did I know my toddler would LOVE using it! 

Now when he makes a mess (usually after each meal), I plug the vacuum in and he cleans up after himself. The vacuum is lightweight enough for him to operate with supervision. He's learning that you need to clean up your own messes; an invaluable lesson. 

Life lesson plus a clean kitchen equals a win-win!

Hey! So nice!)) So cute child. I have also a son! He is John! And he loves to help me to do everything about the house. Especially cleaning. We bought a new cleaner to make it more comfortable.
