In honor of Fire Prevention Week, a local volunteer firefighter ("Mr. Emily" the husband of teacher "Miss Emily") visited Polly's school to talk about fire safety. Here she is, trying on his helmet:

We have also been practicing calling 911. The first time we role-played with The Wog as the caller, she identified herself and her street. I then asked how many people were in the house and she listed off a bunch (including several who were not actually here at the time--she has a rich imagination) in addition to "our baby, West." When I asked her where her Mommy and Daddy were, she told me we were already outside. In her version, apparently, we've headed out to safety, and sent her back inside to call for help!
