Baby Xin, for all her courage at swinging on monkey bars and climbing on chairs and stools, is afraid of the vacuum cleaner. Today I vacuumed the sofa and Baby Xin started crying because of the noise. First she ran away, then she found the dining table chair, climbed onto it and stood up, and while looking at the vacuum cleaner from her safe post, continued crying.
She stopped when I stopped the power, and when I resumed she resumed crying. Her brother and sister were so amused.
Wei said that Baby Xin thought the vacuum cleaner was evil.
Yuan told the crying baby: " The vacuum cleaner is a non-living thing, so it cannot be evil. When you get to Standard 1, Baby Xin, you will learn about living things and non-living things."
