My son's new career

Postby iluvk9 » July 23rd, 2007, 3:56 pm

I have been busting at the seams to share this, but I had to wait for him to officially accept.

My son is now a New York City Probationary Firefighter! :)

He took the test 3 years ago and had to wait for the list to be called. Of course, I always hoped for a nice desk job for him, on the first floor of a safe building, but our dreams were not the same. :wink: I guess that English degree from SUNY Binghamton will come in handy when he fills out his paperwork?

When he makes the FDNY Calendar, I will be sure to update the photos... 8)

Thank you, Noel. I am very proud of him.

I am ONLY allowed to share those photos for now. The FDNY Calendar will be a free-for-all. 8)

Thanks Liz and Debby. :)

And Randi, I am SO NOT ALLOWED to post his recent photos. I guess it's a guy thing. When I suggested it, he said, "the same forum you post photos of the dogs?????"

But in 13 weeks when he graduates the academy, let him try and stop me! :wink: I gave birth to him, for crying out loud.

All men are created equal, and then a few become NYC Firefighters.


I love that! :) I know your so proud! Looking forward to that calendar too! :mask:

I just noticed you posted your SON'S pics in the 4 legger section. Poor kid. I'll move it to the PEOPLE pic section.
