Bye Bye Hoover

This morning I woke up to calls of 'bye bye hoot'! (meaning hoover)

Nicholas has developed a phobia of loud, noisy appliances. Particularly the hand blender (he has a panic attack if he even spots it in the cupboard) and the hoover. There never used to be a problem - he would always watch me blend his meals quite contently, and the hoover actually put him to sleep!

When I want him to finish an activity to do something else, we say 'bye bye kitchen/blocks etc.' - he now comes up to me several times a day and says 'bye bye hoot'  with a rather worried look like I might decide that the carpets really do need cleaning today.
