We were talking about firemen and firewomen the other day, thanks to the inspiration from the preschool session about community helpers.
I was telling Caroline that we had lots of firemen in our family history. I told her about great-grandpa and how Pappaw was a fireman before he got sick. Then I brought up Uncle Jim, who was a battalion chief before he retired a few years ago.
"Oh! I didn't know that. That's neat to know. "
She continued, "Yeah. I like Uncle Jim. I'm glad he's not dead."
