Where there’s smoke …

I finally got around to fitting smoke alarms in the girls’ rooms today. They sleep with their doors closed so we can’t rely on the main alarms to let us know if they discover the art of fire-making while enjoying a midnight feast or have an accident while lighting farts.

I thought I’d been very careful to involve Josie in the work without letting her know precisely what was going on given her concerns about loud noises and fire. When it came to bed time she looked up at the alarm and said, “Daddy, you put that in my room.”
“Yes I did. I put it there to keep us all safe.”
“Yes you did. That’s a fire alarm. If it goes beep then you come rescue me and fireman comes to put out fire.”

So she has that sussed. I hope she can’t reach the test button.

    Fireman Sam is as good for health and safety at home as The Koala Brothers are at preparing little ones for a camping trip… Elspeth is really looking forward to camping in May in a sleeping bag and tent like the aforementioned… hope you’re well and preparations for the long flight are underway.
