Zachary helping mummy vacuum

So I was vacuuming the downstairs just now and Zachary got his toy vacuum cleaner and began to "vacuum" after me. So cute :-) Then, once I had vacuumed the living room, he shouted "no mummy! There is a crocodile in the kitchen! I have to save you!" I played along with him and said "oh no Zachary, crocodiles really scare mummy!" Can you please go in there and scare the crocodile for me. He did and came back all proud, saying "mummy I sat on the crocodile's nose, he won't hurt you now!" I'm amazed at a few things: 1) that he knows to sit on a crocodile's nose (he is part Australian after all); 2) that he instinctively wanted to protect him mummy and 3) that he wanted to vacuum with mummy. I'm hoping this desire will continue until he's a teenager :) I love our little boy so much! Almost 3 and completely adorable. It would have been a perfect Hallmark moment if it wasn't for me noticing his pee all down the front of his trousers. Oh well. Life as a toddler mama is full of fun moments!!

The YouTube videos above are of Zachary recently playing soccer in our living room; of Zachary finding and using his flashlight and of Zachary playing well with his Montessori-inspired nuts and bolts (that daddy made!!) :-))
