Introducing Herbie

Let me take some time to introduce you to my new friend.

Herbie the Roomba.

My push present (or more like my “I got cut wide open and had a baby pulled out of me” gift).

What?, you ask.  No diamonds?

Nope.  With three kids, I am all about practicality.

And Herbie fits the bill.

Before Christmas two of my friends told me about their new roombas.  They raved about not having to sweep/vacuum any more.

So I told Jarrod that a roomba was what I wanted for birthing his third child.

I finally got around to researching roombas over the weekend to figure out which model I wanted.  And then yesterday afternoon, me and my pretty little 20% off Bed Bath & Beyond coupon went and picked out Herbie. 

And I love him!  I’m not having to sweep up crumbs all the dang time now (note: why do my kids have be such big fans of crackers – the biggest crumb maker in the pantry).  That alone makes him worth his weight in gold for this busy mom.  And Herbie does a great job cleaning.  In fact, I’m kind of grossed out by all of the stuff that he sweeps/vacuums up.  Ick! 

Now if someone can invent a robot that can vacuum the stairs, I’d be set!

You have me sold. I just sent your blog post to my husband.

(Also, since Alex was a c-section, Andy got me a "pull present". Hahaha!)

I got one for Christmas and I LOVE IT!!! The kids treat it like a pet: "Roomba's looking for his home!" "Where's Roomba? Where's Roomba??"
