During the summer, we saw the hot air balloon launch for Independence Day. We got right up close to the balloons -- enough that we could feel the heat every time they turned on the fire. Ever since, Madeleine always makes the sound of fire whenever we talk about fire. I don't know how to spell the sound... something like: "fffffhhhhhuhhuhhhh"
A few months ago, we had a fire in our fire place. Kimmy was over and taught Madeleine that the fire was dangerous by saying, "Danger!" and moving her hands back and forth as if to say stay away. So Madeleine often says "danger!" when she's near the fire place.
We've all been sick lately (colds, coughs and congestion) and so we've had the humidifier running in Madeleine's room at night to alleviate that a bit. Since we narrate everything we do when Madeleine's around (We're not the only parents that do this, are we? We're not crazy, right?) she knows that it's called a humidifier.
One morning, we went to turn off the humidifier and she said, "Fire! ffffhhhhhhhhhh! Danger!" Because a humidifier is just a humid kind of fire to her :)
