Our four year old boy Madison is our resident superhero. Well, actually a fireman super hero. He's obsessed with Fireman Sam, loves fire engines, and when we're not looking he even has his fireman strut, which is quite giggle worthy.

And since starting kinder he's started a little bit of a fireman craze. He's the head fireman and while everyone else climb up a low branched tree and meow like kittens, he goes off to save them all. (I know this because I've seen it in action and heard the other parents talk about it too. Apparently, there's lots of fireman chat at dinner time.)

Well, today after not being at kinder for a week, lots of his friends had missed The Fireman Boy and were excited to know that they could again be saved by him.

At pick up time, I asked him how his day at Kinder was.


"Did you play fireman today?

"Yes we did. But Mum, it was really boring."


"Well, because I'm tired of being the superhero. I want to be a kitten stuck up in a tree. But nobody wants to save me."

It's hard work being a superhero.


  1. Delightful

    When my Brenton was in preschool he was train and fireman crazy. Bought about by Thomas The Tank and Fireman Sam his idols lol.
    Luckily for us when we lived in Melbourne we had a best friend who was the Fire Captain in the big fire station in the city. Brenton got to dress like one, sit at the wheel of the truck and turn the siren on, slide down the pole and turn a fire hose on out back. He is 17 going on 18 and remembers that day fondly.

    Hold dear your lil fireman they grow up in a blink of an eye they truly do!



  2. Kids are just do dang cute. (And so is fireman sam too!!) Love hearing posts like this :O)

  3. Oh that's soooo annoying when you can't find good help! Maybe he'll need to be a genie cat that can grant wishes to anyone who can save him (a little incentive goes a long way!!)

  4. That is so gorgeous! :-)

  5. hahahahaha!! too cute. I love it!!

  6. Tell your beautiful boy that I feel exactly the same way. x

  7. Bless his little heart. Hope he finds someone to save him soon!

  8. I am so on his page. I am still waiting to sit back and let some other superhero take control.

  9. This is lovely. My eldest boy has just started 4 year old kinder too, and I love how much all the kids have blossomed in a few weeks. So wonderful to hear they are making up games and everyone is joining in. Hope he gets a turn to be saved too.


Thank you for your thoughtful and positive words and taking the time to comment. Love Kymmie. xx
