"There's no need for me to learn how to use scissors
because my aunt can cut and sew so great"
Wonderful little guy
That line up there is what my wonderful nephew delivered when his kindergarten teacher tried to get him to show how he manages scissors (that's part of the 4-5yrs skills-testing here). I was deeply touched by those words, he seems to appreciate my handmadebyMia-skills. And he can use scissors perfectly when he feels like it.
We have been spending many of our Fridays together lately, and he just amazes me every time we meet with his creativity, innovations and his energy. The endless energy he has. He has been a great fan of policemen for ages, but lately firemen have been the flavor of the month. We play fire station for hours. He is the star of the station, naturally, and I got to play the enthusiastic yet not the brightest assistant. Oh yes, we've watched a lot of Fireman Sam, and many of our plays are based on those episodes too. Usually Sam spots the (imaginary)fire, makes the alarm(noise) and also puts down the flames (like up there using my water spray bottle). You would be surprised how many fires there can be within one day.
He also loves his godfather dearly, and likes nothing better than do manly things with him: washing the car, making sauna ready, painting, repairs around the house... He also loves the godfather's stuff (like guitar, cigar humidor), and wants to try them every time he visits (see the humidor's hydrometer adjusted above). But what he does best is to bring smiles and happiness all around him:
"Look! We got mail! Santa sent us card here in fire station!
Please let's read it together!"
