This child is drawn to fire. He is always trying to start one the old fashioned way, by rubbing two sticks together. The hard way, I should say. Or any way, really. If we are at either grandparents house, grandma Patricia's or grandma Estella's, he asks if we can have a fire.
He knows the dangers and rules about starting one on his own.
Maybe soon he'll be able to start one this way. He is very persistent. I know he will get it really soon.
