Our own little Fire Marshal

Little Elvis isn't just into Transformers (and Buzz, who made a huge comeback this week!) He's also become very, very interested in fires and fire safety.

He's been interested in/concerned about fires for a while. But over the past few weeks, the constant fire questions have morphed just a little bit.

He's now very into smoke detectors, fire alarms and fire extinguishers. He's scoped out all of the smoke detectors in our house, and my parents' house. He's inspected our fire extinguisher. He pretty much understands why we don't have fire alarms.

We've also inspected the smoke detectors, fire alarms and sprinklers at church. He likes to look for any sort of fire emergency signage whereever we go.

For those of you who know me, you probably know that I'm already thinking about Christmas presents. Most of my family presents are secured, with the exception of my parents and grandparents.

I had been looking at a weather radio for my mom's parents when Little Elvis informed me that they needed smoke detectors for Christmas. He actually said that! He was inspecting their ceilings during his last visit and discovered that they didn't have any smoke detectors! (Apparently, they needed batteries and instead of replacing them, they just took them down.)

So, they are getting smoke detectors.

My parents don't have a fire extinguisher, and I have a feeling they will be getting one of those.

Just a warning, if you live near us, Little Elvis will most likely want to go into your house, inspect it for fire safety gear, and then want us to buy you whatever he thinks you are lacking.

Christmas presents for family will be easy this year.

Too bad we don't live closer. It's time to check our smoke detectors! :)

That's awesome! And considering the fact that there are so many different kinds of fire prevention measures/equipment, etc., he'll be busy for a long time! (Maybe long enough to outgrow the transformers??)

Noah's been into firemen, etc, for a while. I was actually thinking last year that we were going to have to have his birthday at a fire station OR SOMETHING. Fortunately, his interest waned a little bit.

Also, I've got something on that topic to share with you. I've been working on it for a while, maybe typing hinting at it here is the motivation I'll need to finish it...
It'll be a surprise!

Has he watched Fireman Sam at all? Skyler LOVES him.
