Frightful

(To the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody)…

I see a little silhouetto of the hoover
Scaramouch, scaramouch, will you do the fandango
Now mums plugging it in, very very frightening me!!
Balamory, Balamory
Balamory on TV

I’m just a toddler, everybody loves me
He’s just a toddler from a normal family
Spare him the noise of this monstrosity
Easy come, easy clean, will you let me Hoover?

NO!!!!! will not let you hoover – let me hoooover!
Will not let you hoover – let me Hoover!!
Will not let you Hoover – let me Hoover!!
Will not let you Hoover – let me Hoover!!
Never let you hoover – *Sigh*
Never let you hoover…
No! No! No! No! No!!!

Oh mom! Oh mom! (Say mummy darling, mummy!) let me go…

Oh woolly and tig, this hoovers got its eye on meeeeeeee. On meeeeee! On meeeeeeee!!!!

Yes, Little Z is still terrified of the Hoover.

(Sorry, I’ve had Bohemian Rhapsody stuck in my head ever since I saw the theme for the Gallery this week was Frightful!. Well, actually, I thought it was “Frightening!”…till I saw the other entries. Oops.)

    Brilliant! I love Queen and Bohemian Rhapsody. This is genius. To be fair, your hoover does look pretty scary in that picture!

      It is a monster of a machine. He’s always been terrified of it. We get some nice cuddles every day though every time its hoover time

      My hubby says its because I didn’t hoover whilst pregnant…ahem! 🙂

    mine hate the hoover too but it is because they don’t like being disturbed and can’t hear their current TV programme or music that they are listening too! Great post!

    • notmyyearoff November 2, 2012 / 8:39 am

      Haha! I’m sure he’s going to reach that age too!

    I purchased a toy Dyson which helped my little dude overcome his Hoover fear… the dog still hates it though! x

    • notmyyearoff November 2, 2012 / 8:40 am

      He LOVES his toy Dyson but the proper one scares the life out of him

    • notmyyearoff November 2, 2012 / 8:40 am

      Ours still guards various things in our house

    Funny! My wee man hated the hoover when he was younger. Does not mind it so much now as long as it does not get too close!

    • notmyyearoff November 2, 2012 / 8:41 am

      I’m hoping he reaches that stage very soon. Its so hard hoovering with a toddler on my hip!

    • notmyyearoff November 2, 2012 / 8:41 am
