Recently our son has become obsessed with firefighters and everything surrounding them. Fire trucks, firemen, hoses, fire stations, clothes and gear - he loves it all. He tries to slide down anything that might resemble a fireman’s pole and any toy that might pass for a hose is used to extinguish everything in his path. He watches Fireman Sam on DVD and Youtube and carries his fire dog, Spot, with him most of the time.
N’s been so obsessed with firefighters that my mother made him an outfit and my father got into the spirit of things and stopped by the local fire station. They were nice enough to give him some patches and a volunteer badge for his outfit and now he looks very official.
