This morning while I was waiting for bopeepsheep to get out of the shower I vaccuum-cleaned the living room carpet in smallclanger's presence. He didn't like it.
As a result, I got asked if I enjoyed traumatising young children.
Out of order
The hoovering can wait.
A clean floor is a good floor.
The sooner he gets used to it, the better.
He shouldn't be subjected to that until he's old enough to understand.
Of course, he was more traumatised by the fact that I had to leave to go to work.
