FIRE, FIRE! Wet's go!

I'm always amazed by how smart my Doodlebug is. I find myself saying, "he's too little to know that or to do that" and then he immediately proves me wrong. The things he can learn are just unbelievable. He truly is a sponge soaking it all up! I'm also always amazed by just how wonderful his Daddy is with him.

Unknown to me, Jeff had decided that Chase needed to learn about fires and what to do if he were ever caught in one. I know that children need to know this and I know that families should have an escape plan, but I had yet to ever put this into motion at our house.

When I arrived home the other evening it was time for a demonstration. Jeff pushed the test button on the alarm w/o Chase knowing and Chase's eyes got huge. He looked up and screamed, "Fire, Fire, Come on Mommy we go outside now!" He grabbed our hands and we headed out the door. He then told us, "it's OK" once we got outside. Now how smart is that? *sigh* I swear he is just the smartest little guy in the whole world!!! I thought he'd forget, but he again showed us what to do when Duchess was with us this weekend and if you ask him what to do if there's a fire, he'll tell you. In all seriousness, I really do think I have to two best guys in the world.... I'm a lucky girl!
