run the vacuum

< Previous | Next >


Did you try the bouncy seat? Try running the vacuum. That stops her from crying sometimes.

The mother at work is talking to her baby's nanny on the phone about her baby.

What's the meaning of "running the vacuum"??

    It means to turn the vacuum cleaner on and use it on the carpet or the bare floor. You could just let it run and not move it at all. The loud noise is what they're talking about.

    The noise from the machine distracts the baby and he/she stops crying.
    It makes the dog and the cat disappear, too.
