This one is special as this is about our son (pravit’s) 5th B’day gift. He has been fascinated by ‘fire engines’ ever since he was 3. Every time pass by the Fire Station (and there are two near our place) he jumps to that side of the car and says, “So when will you take me there next?” I did once, and we sat in one of the machines. He was fascinated just by the thought that he too could be one of those strong men in Red clothes with that massive fire hose in his arms!
This year when I asked him what he wanted for his birthday, he said, he wanted a toy laptop. One that he had seen in a pamphlet advertising other toys from some company. I needed buffer, so I asked him, “just in case i don’t get that one, what is it that is second on your list?” “A Lego Toy, like the one that Mamu got.” Oh!K, so that was that.
So here are some pictures of Pravit and I having fun with the “Fire Brigade – Lego” that I got for him on his birthday. I did not get the laptop, it was unavailable at the two shops that I tried.
He was a happy child and I a satisfied Father who had just managed to fulfill a small dream that his child dreamt.
