My son the fireman

Not content with being called fireman Sam, Damien has decided he wants to be called fireman Tom, no idea where he has got that from. He has become obsessed with anything to do with fire, you name it he wants it!

One of the problems I have with this is that he shouts 'FIRE' really loudly when out in public. This causes people to slightly panic, similar situation I guess to shouting bomb on a plane. This morning there has been a fire at our house, jolly babies and the worst yet , the doctor waiting room!

He has also developed a love of sliding down the fire pole. The problem with this is that we don't actually have a fireman's pole at home. Therefore, he has created his own. Let me give you a few examples;

1. My leg
2. My back
3. His high hair
4. Dennis' high chair
5. Any electric cable
6. The stair gate
7. The bannister
8. Other children
9. My arm
10. Actually any body part he can cling too.

I expect you can see where I am going with this, yep he will slide down anything.

He has also taken to wearing a red fireman hat everywhere we go! I can sometimes persuade him to leave it in the car but only with a bribe. Usually sweets.

Perhaps he has already decided what he wants to do when he is older.


  1. My middle man is also Fireman Sam obsessed. He shouted call FAM his way of saying fireman sam at the playhouse Disney show when there was some smoke effect. Maybe your boy likes Tom Thomas too hence the Fireman Tom?

  2. My 2yr ois Sam mad too - we went to see him at a Farm on Wed and he was so shocked when he saw him he didn't even want to stand to close to him for a photo. We managed it in the end but for the rest of the day 'Sam, Sam, Sam' ahhh I'm a little sick of Sam right now can you tell! ahhhh

    1. Awww bless him! They are funny at times arent they. My little man sings the fireman Sam theme tune but goes nuts if I suggest we actually watch it! Weird! Xx
