Hook and Ladder
Collin was a very mature two and a half year old who loved anything that made him feel like a big boy. It did not take him very long to discover our book containing antique fire fighting equipment. He would be lost in the pictures for hours or at least what felt like hours to a two year old.
That Halloween we dressed him as a firefighter complete with coat, boots and a bright red helmet. He is still dressed as a firefighter and it is almost Christmas. When he wears his gear, he refuses to wear a diaper because firefighters are big boys and they do not wear diapers either. He has also perfected the siren which he shares with strangers at the mall on a weekly basis.
