If I can't see anything, I am safe.Being the closest weekend to James' birthday we celebrated with a bonfire. The bush fire season is over so we take the opportunity to toast marshmallows and bake damper bread.
As the little fire tends to get a bit hot, Clare explained to me she "let Jofus (Joseph) cook my Damper for me." Such consideration!
"This is how I get near the fire, Daddy."
Basically she covers her face with the hood of her jacket and then can't see anything. So, "safely" covered, she then staggers around towards the fire until we catch her and redirect her to safety.
The safety plans of five year olds don't always meet International Standards.
