The other night after the kids had gone to bed, Carter came out and I was teasing him that I though he was a dinosaur. In a very serious voice he replied, "I'm not a dinosaur. I have a bum and a pee-pee. Dinosaurs just have tails." And actually, that may be the only difference.
Tonight, Cori vacuumed up a marble, which got stuck in the fan. That caused the vacuum to sound REALLY bad. This allowed me the pleasure of completely disassembling it in the garage this evening. The only way it could have been more disassembled would have been if I had melted it down into a blog of plastic. Once I got the fan open and got the marble out, I turned it on briefly to make sure it was working before I put the thing back together. I'm not sure if you've ever turned on a vacuum motor when it's out of the vacuum, but take it from me, it's really loud. The kids were out there playing while I was doing this, and after the really loud noise, Carter ran up to me and yelled, "Bloody Hell! What was that?!" I think he's been watching too much Harry Potter. He even said it with an English accent.
