Since the fire drill about a month ago, The Boy has been watching YouTube videos of fire drills going off, creating PowerPoints where his favorite video game characters are experiencing fire drills, and we have had more than one Fun Friday dedicated to fire alarm inspections of the local elementary schools, with varying success.
On Thursday last week, I picked The Boy up from Kids Club and he had made a couple of fire alarms from construction paper:
It may be difficult to see, but each has a picture of a house on fire (printed from the computer, with the matching color background), and a man running from the house. The dots are the speakers, and the lines indicate that sound is coming from those speakers.
Needless to say, these alarms were promptly “installed” at our house, in the hallway, and in the kitchen:
Don’t ask me how he got up above the sink…
I asked if he’d like to visit a firehouse, and was met with silence (which is Boy-speak for “no”). This too shall pass. At least he doesn’t seem anxiety-ridden about it – it actually seems like he’s having fun. This too shall pass… Right?
