Inspired by Macy's pre-school trip to the Fire Station, where Fireman Ken asked the kids what they would do if there was a fire (met by blank stares), we decided to have a FHE on fire safety.
I would say it went well, until we opened the discussion for questions. Macy had been listening very intently with only a slightly worried look on her face. Then she told us she knows she would have to leave all her things and get out. She kept repeating, "I KNOW, I KNOW I will just have to leave my things and we'll have to get new things. I KNOW I can't take my toys or my blankets. I KNOW THAT. I KNOW." Her voice got more hysterical until she was crying her little eyes out. Poor thing.
Polly, on the other hand told us if there was a fire in her room, a princess would come and help her out of there.
Clearly we are on different levels of comprehension.
